Do you use it? Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching anything. In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but neringer seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule.

Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot

They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer. One thing I’m noticing more and more is that you have to keep on moving in learning piano, always getting challenging stuff make my old difficulties easier, and so on They seem to work fairly well for warm up as well.

A Google search brings up brief discussions of the Beringer. I think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway.

Any idea what the nationality of the author is? Originally Posted by thumper Sorry I can’t be more help.

The author’s name is Oscar Beringer. What you guys think about it? My copy is in English only. I agree – it does seem to focus on finger strength, although some of the later exercises do focus on elasticity, at least it seems to me this way, the ones with the 4 note chords where you’re alternating between the pair of 2 notes A, I think, in my book. I find them challenging but they do seem to help with certain skills. She told me that what I can learn from Czerny I can learn better faster from Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot the other book we’ll start soon, Principes rationnels de la technique pianistiquethe problem is that Czerny is more “musical”, while Beringer is boring, although valuable, stuff.

For a more advanced exfrcises, a choice from the 51 Brahms exercises would be also useful. Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode. I bought it based on the recommendation from my piano teacher – he’s gone thru a few of those books, berniger this is one of the one s he felt was the more well-rounded.

The other thing she told me was that this authors are modern and have written better methods than the old folks like Czerny, Hanon, etc, whose study might lead to wrong technical playing? I haven’t been able to find anything on Cortot’s exercises, except that he apparently taught playing beringrr little tension, and was influenced by Matthay’s books.

Or already used in the past?

Think of your whole arm, from shoulder to fingertip, as a whole lever there are really four or more levers heringer, but they should behave as an unity. I’ve been trying to do about 30 mins each day. With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher.

Personally, I’ve studied it through, pinao I found it difficult to make it the center of my study, or my teaching. Finger strength is what I still need, thought. I have no idea if the guy is brazilian or what. I know I got a beating the 1st time I did the exercise. Beringee trying to balance a few things right now as far as my piano lessons, but it feels this book is helping my playing overall. Originally posted by marino: Hi thumper49, I think if they are challenging this is very positive.

It’s very good to have a teacher, but also, have a material with an organized practicing schedule is pretty important since we have to be a little indepent ourselves either. I mean, of course I totally trust my teacher, but I’m a curious individual and I want to know different kinds of approach. Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot.

Rod, while finger strenght is very important, I would recommend alternating this kind of technique with something involving more wrist and arm action, and to always mantain a playing posture of great flexibility, never allowing your forearms to get stiff. Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull. My teacher told me that a former teacher of her hid technique, that is, she discovered that hers former teacher, which who she spent 11 years of lessons, hid Cortot from her!!!


The title of the book would be roughly translated as “Daily Technical Exercises” I’ve been using this book for about a few weeks now – I think it’s fantastic, it’s doing wonders for my technique, finger strength and finger dexterity. My teacher dislikes Hanon I’ve never actually since the exercises myself – he says they are too narrow in scope.

I don’t have more than an hour in my day to give to piano, so obviously I’m not going to be following her example, but I do the few exercises she has given me to target specific issues finger independence, thumb mobility, for example. My book is in Portuguese and French. She told me that when she was studying piano at university in Romania she set herself a goal of devoting one hour per day to Cortot for one year and swears that it changed her hand completely, for the better, in strength and independence.

I would advise to do the Beringer in conjunction with Hanon in several keys, modes, rhythms and articulation and maybe some Dohnanyi or Cortot.

Hello everybody, Today I had my week class with my piano teacher, and she started to work with me using Oscar Beringer – Daily Technical Studies for Piano.

The samples on Google Books look like the Schmitt exercises; I wonder how they differ. It seems to concentrate on finger strenght, but I love to work on elasticity, too. I found this so absurd that I became very curious about this book!

So I took a few of the Beringer exercises and modified them, in order to integrate them in my teaching and personal technique. Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book??
