Better than Hanon


Better than Hanon

Better than Hanon, by Cory Hall, for solo piano (Level 6+), includes introductory essay and practice tips, 8 pages of music. If there were just one exercise that encapsulated the most benefits, Better than Hanon would definitely be among the front-runners! It is quite possibly the best single study for pianists. Among the most popular and trusted technical studies for pianists are those by Charles-Louis Hanon (1819-1900). Hanon's studies, staples for over 150 years, work their way through the keys with an emphasis placed on attaining independence of the five fingers of each hand. Hall's unique and ingenious Better than Hanon, like Hanon's studies, uses all ten fingers while progressing up all the keys chromatically; however, Hall's advanced study earns the "better than" label because the fingers are constantly expanded into octave positions thereby achieving more strength, dexterity, and flexibility than in Hanon's studies. Moreover, Hall's study alternates between 4/4 and 5/4 time with quintuplets, thereby training students to play in perfect time with more complex rhythms than in Hanon's studies. Regular practicing of Better than Hanon is guaranteed to boost pianists' technique and mastery of rhythm to the highest possible level, perhaps more so than any other single study for piano.
