A lot of jazz players seem to like the Beringer book.

Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot

Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot. With the other materials you depend pretty much eercises the teacher. I’ve been trying to do about 30 mins each day.

I made a note of the other ones as well.

Or already used in the past? I think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway. 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.

Originally Posted by thumper They seem to work fairly well for warm up as well. 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.

The samples on Google Books look like the Schmitt exercises; I wonder how they differ. 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 agree, however, that there are other ways to get there – if your teacher has a good, integrated method, you shouldn’t worry. The general consensus seems to be that the exercises are helpful, and harder than they appear.

My copy is in English only. Originally posted by marino: Add to your Watched Users. My teacher has mentioned a few others one in the past I’m drawing a blankso I’ll check with him if he’s familiar with these. 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!!!

It seems to concentrate on finger strenght, but I love to work on elasticity, too.

What you guys think about it? Think of your whole arm, from shoulder to exercisess, as a whole lever there are really four or more levers invoved, but they should behave as an unity. Just wondering if you guys are familiar with it, and what you thought.

Daily Technical Studies for Piano: Piano Book: Oscar Beringer

I would advise to do the Beringer in conjunction with Hanon in several keys, modes, rhythms and articulation and maybe some Dohnanyi or Cortot. Bwringer I took a few of the Beringer exercises and modified them, in order to integrate them in my teaching and personal technique. 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 veringer, thumb mobility, for example.

Piamo 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. Do you use it? 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 bfringer where you’re alternating between the pair of 2 notes A, I think, in my book.


I’ve found that “non-pianistic” rxercises, like the exercises you would do in order to loosen your arm muscles before swimming, are very useful if done before playing, too.

Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull.

But I don’t mind spending time on things that don’t sound pleasant, if they help me do better with the things that do sound pleasant. Sorry I can’t be more help. Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching anything.

T├Ągliche Technische Studien (Beringer, Oscar)

Hanon is surely limited in scope if taken alone! I know I got a beating the 1st time I did the exercise.

Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book?? I haven’t been able to exercisse anything on Cortot’s exercises, except that he apparently taught playing with little tension, and was influenced by Matthay’s books.

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. My book is in Portuguese and French. Any idea what the nationality of the author is?

I have no idea if the guy is brazilian or what. Finger strength is what I still need, thought. Thank you for sharing experience. In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule. Personally, I’ve studied it through, but I found it difficult to make it the center exercisws my study, or my teaching.
