Interactive Hanon package
« on: August 19, 2015, 09:30:22 PM »
Hey everybody -- I put together an online package of the first 30 Hanon exercises. The philosophies are:

* It should be available for free online, in a web-optimized way. (Obviously it's already available on IMSLP, but that's a PDF, which doesn't work well on small screens, can't be listened to, etc.)

* It should be accessible to people who can't read well yet. There's a visual keyboard display, which shows you where to put your fingers.

* You should be able to hear audio. You can hit the play button to hear how it should sound (currently with synth samples, but I'll add a proper real recording soon). You can slow it down, loop sections and hear a metronome. Obviously Hanon exercises aren't the pinnacle of beautiful melody, but, for me, it's a huge help to hear the music I'm trying to play, before I try to play it.

Here is the link: https://www.soundslice.com/collections/hanon/

What do you think?

I know there's a fair amount of debate about whether Hanon is worth practicing for everybody; this is intended for Hanon fans. If the response is positive, I will add other exercises and repertoire to this system!

Thanks I am going to use your page. I can benefit from these exercises as I am just returning to piano after a prolonged serious illness.
I'm not certain I would assign much Hanon to students, but for us old pianos who need a tuning, it might just do the trick
