New age Hanon!

Hi everyone! I'm Behdad Bahrami, a composer and pianist and I wrote an etude named: New age hanon. This etude contains 15 short exercises in the style of Hanon, but also in a more musical way. This can be suitable for pianists and other instrument players (with some consideration in double notes) as well. I produced three versions of the Etude. Every version becomes harder due to the left hand part. The first one (that is used for this video) has simple left hand arpeggios. These arpeggios becomes more advanced (by consisting of sixteen notes) in the second one. The third version is written unison for both hands. If you wanted to practice, you can combine these versions yourself.
All these versions are free to download (for now) plus backing tracks in seven different tempos.
Notice that if you are not a pianist and have difficulties in playing double notes, you can play the higher notes in these cases.

Perhaps it is, then as I can get sound on it.

Best,

Interesting, but what about the left hand?

You're competing with Hanon there.  Haha.  They're probably both about the same.

I'd call it Pop Hanon though.  I was wondering New Age Hanon would sound like.

Doesn't your left hand cramp up playing like that?

Thanks for your comment. Iíve wrote three versions of the etude that there are links to download all of them for free. You can find the links in the Youtube caption. In every new version the left hand has more important role. This is version I that you can see in the video, version II has more complicated left hand arpeggios with 16 notes and version III is unison like the Hanon. You can also combine these versions yourself. In addition I should say that this etude can be played by other instruments as well and in this case they donít need a separate left hand part.
