It says it takes 20 minutes.  The Sibelius site will play the audio through for you.

I am neither for or against Hanon.  It depends how you use it.  I just like having it all one one page.  Nice and concise.

You could memorize and save more paper.  Pass some Hanon around from person to person without any paper.

"Pocket Hanon" sounds like a pianist's spin on a familiar euphemism.  Grin

There's another series of Jazz Hanon, Blues Hanon, Salsa Hanon... I think maybe Ragtime Hanon too.  I'm not sure.

I know nothing about those books of course.

I heard of a Hanon book that can change lead into gold, and gives eternal life.
Couple of years ago somebody made a movie about it: 'Harry Dotter and the phylosofers Hanon Book'.
Anybody can give me an Ebay link or whatever where i can buy that book?

Thanks,

Gyzzzmo

 Cheesy My teaching bag is going to be soooo much lighter now since this discovery. I have the Jazz, Blues and Boogie-Woogie Hanon books but am not convinced of their usefulness other than giving some rather contrived examples of the various piano styles.
