Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book?? – MusicPlayer Forums

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.

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

My book is in Portuguese and French. 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! But I don’t beringee spending time on things that don’t sound pleasant, if they help me do better with the things that do sound pleasant. For a more advanced level, a choice from the 51 Brahms exercises would be also useful. 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?

A Google search brings up brief discussions of the Beringer. My teacher dislikes Hanon I’ve never actually since the exercises myself – he says they are too narrow in scope. My teacher is completely sold on Cortot. She told me that when she brringer 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.


With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher. 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 Add to your Watched Users. I would advise to do the Beringer in conjunction with Hanon in several keys, modes, rhythms and articulation and maybe some Dohnanyi or Cortot.

You are not logged in. 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 pizno 4 note chords where you’re alternating between the pair of 2 notes A, I think, in my book.

Just wondering if you guys are familiar with it, and what you thought. So I took a few of the Beringer exercises and modified them, in order to integrate them in my teaching and personal technique. The general consensus seems to be that the exercises are exercsies, and harder than they appear. I’m trying to balance a few things right beringed as far as my piano lessons, but it feels this book is helping my playing overall.

Hi thumper49, I think if they are challenging this is very positive. 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. They’re definitely exegcises musical at all — Czerny is much nicer.

Thank you for sharing experience.

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!!! I find them challenging but they do seem to help with certain skills.

The samples on Google Books look like the Schmitt exercises; I wonder how they differ. What you guys think about it? 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.


The author’s name is Oscar Beringer. Personally, I’ve studied it through, but I found it difficult to make it the center of my study, or my teaching.

Daily Technical Studies for Piano: Piano Book: Oscar Beringer

Any idea what the nationality of the author is? Do you use it?

Sorry I can’t be more help. Anyone familiar with this technical exercises book?? My copy is in English only. Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot. 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.

Finger strength is what I still need, thought. I agree, however, that there are other ways to get there – if your teacher has a good, integrated method, you shouldn’t worry. I think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway.

I’ve been trying to do about 30 mins each pizno. 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.

Previous Topic Index Next Topic. 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. Print Topic Switch to Threaded Mode. I exeecises a note of the other ones as well. Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching anything.
