Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull. I found this so absurd that I became very curious about this book! My copy is in English only. Personally, I’ve studied it through, but I found it difficult to make it the center of my study, or my teaching. The samples on Google Books veringer like the Schmitt exercises; I wonder how they differ.

Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode. 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. Finger strength is what I still need, thought.

I made a note of the other ones as well. Originally posted by marino: A Google search brings up brief discussions of the Beringer. 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.

My teacher is completely sold on Cortot. Dave BryceStephen Fortner. I have no idea if the guy is brazilian or what.

Do you use it? Exrecises is surely limited in scope if taken alone! Switch to Threaded Mode. 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.


So I took a few of the Beringer exercises and modified them, in order to integrate them in my teaching and personal technique.

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 pianoo done before playing, too. They seem to work fairly well for warm up as well. I mean, of course I totally trust my teacher, but I’m a curious individual and I want to know different kinds of approach.

Just wondering if you guys are familiar with it, and beinger you thought. Thank you for sharing experience.

Beringger think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway. 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 exericses able to find anything on Cortot’s exercises, except that he apparently taught playing with little tension, and was influenced by Matthay’s books.

They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer. Any idea what the nationality of the author is? 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, edercises doing wonders for my technique, finger strength and finger dexterity.

I know I got a beating the 1st time I did the exercise. Think of your whole arm, from shoulder to fingertip, as a beringeg lever there are really four or more levers invoved, but they should behave as an unity. A lot of jazz players seem to like the Beringer book.

My teacher dislikes Hanon I’ve never actually since the exercises myself – he says they are too narrow in scope. In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule.

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 was the more well-rounded.

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.

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 pianoothe problem is that Czerny is more “musical”, while Beringer is boring, berniger valuable, stuff.

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. Or already used in the past?

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.

The general consensus seems to be that the exercises are helpful, and harder than they appear. I would advise to do the Beringer in conjunction with Hanon in exericses keys, modes, rhythms and articulation and maybe some Dohnanyi or Cortot. 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!!!
