Hanon and Czerny useless?
« on: April 26, 2008, 08:13:24 AM »
I just got to read on the internet that this exercises are good to develop the strenght of the fingers, which is good for beginner pianists and or amateur ones, cuz normally the strenght is greater in the thumb and in the index finger.

However, it said that this exercises are useless because each individual finger has its own strenght limit, which cannot be changed, so it may also be a waste of time for some people.
In my case, I just stoped playing hanon exercises cuz I was realising that I was getting nothing from it, that's why now I'm currently workin hard on scales and arpeggios, besides the other pieces I'm learning.

so what's your opinion??I'm totally agree with what it said.
