Playing Hanon exercises daily with proper technique works to do both. And what’s even better is that each exercise works to develop different fingers, or sometimes, all of them!
Is Hanon a beginner?
This book is great and I’m very happy with it. As the right hand plays up and down, the left hand plays only one note. It’s great for beginners.
Which Hanon exercise is best?
- The Five Finger Scale. The most commonly used and beneficial Hanon exercise out there, the Five Finger Scale is pretty easy to get the hang of.
- Full Scales.
- Triad Exercise.
- Chord Exercise.
How do you practice Hanon effectively?
- Start your metronome. Always practice Hanon with a metronome.
- Start at an unnaturally slow pace. So slow that it’s difficult to play with the metronome.
- Move up until you’re working your fingers hard.
- When you feel completely comfortable with one exercise, move on to the next one.
