The general consensus seems to be that the exercises are helpful, and harder than they appear. Originally Posted by thumper Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode. Finger strength is what I still need, thought.

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

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. I agree, however, that there are other ways to get there – if your teacher has a good, integrated method, you shouldn’t worry.

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.

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.

Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching anything. My copy is in English pkano. Any idea what the nationality of the author is?

Or already used in the past?

I think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway. Think of your whole arm, from shoulder to fingertip, as a whole lever there are really four or more levers invoved, but they should behave as an unity.

A Google search brings up brief discussions of the Beringer. I haven’t been able to find anything on Cortot’s exercises, except that he apparently taught playing with little tension, and was influenced by Matthay’s books. 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.

With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher. For a more advanced level, a choice from the 51 Brahms exercises would beriner also useful. I find them challenging but they do seem to help with certain skills. 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.

I found this so absurd that I became very curious about this book! I’m trying to balance a few things right now as far as my piano lessons, but it feels this book is helping my playing overall.

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


My teacher is completely sold on Cortot. I mean, of course I totally trust my teacher, but I’m a curious individual and I want to know different kinds of approach. Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull. Personally, I’ve studied it through, but I found it difficult to make it the center of my study, or my teaching. Hanon is surely limited in scope if taken alone! I bought it based on the recommendation from my piano teacher – he’s gone thru a few of those books, and this is one of the one s he felt exxercises the more well-rounded.

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.

In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule.

Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book?? 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
