The title of the book would be roughly translated as “Daily Technical Exercises” I’ve been using this book for about a few weeks now – I think it’s fantastic, it’s doing wonders for my technique, finger strength and finger dexterity.

Originally posted by marino: So I took a few of the Beringer exercises and modified exrrcises, in order to integrate them in my teaching and personal technique. Do them in a relaxed fashion, without stretching anything. berknger

Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot

It seems to concentrate on finger strenght, but I love to work on elasticity, too. My teacher is completely sold on Cortot. Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot. Thank you for sharing experience. I agree, however, that there are other ways to get there – if your teacher has exetcises good, integrated method, you shouldn’t worry.


She told me that when she was studying piano at university in Romania she set herself a goal of devoting one beinger per day to Cortot for one year and swears that it changed her hand completely, for the better, in strength and independence. Originally Posted by thumper Rod, while finger strenght is very important, I would recommend alternating this kind of technique with something involving more wrist and arm action, and to always mantain a playing posture of great flexibility, never allowing your forearms to get stiff.

A Google search brings up brief discussions of the Beringer. I have no idea if the guy is brazilian or what.

They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer. Add to your Watched Users.

I think Oscar Beringer is or was American – that’s what I’ve always thought anyway. I’ve been trying to do about 30 mins each day. Think of your whole arm, from shoulder to fingertip, as a whole lever there are really four or more levers invoved, but they should behave as an unity. I haven’t been able to find anything on Cortot’s exercises, except that he apparently taught playing with little tension, and was influenced by Matthay’s books.

In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, burgmuller, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule. My teacher has berniger a few others one in the past I’m drawing a blankso I’ll check with him if he’s familiar with these.


I made a note of the other ones as well.

I’m trying to balance a few things right now as far as my piano lessons, but it feels this book puano helping my playing overall. Do you use it? For a more advanced level, a choice from the 51 Brahms exercises would be also useful.

I know I got a beating the 1st time I did the exercise. My book is in Portuguese and French. Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull. What you guys think about it? I agree – it does seem to focus on finger strength, although some of the later exercises do focus exercisea elasticity, at least it seems to me this way, the ones with the 4 note chords where you’re alternating between the pair of 2 notes A, I think, in my book.

They seem to work fairly well for warm up as well. But I don’t mind spending time on things poano don’t sound pleasant, if they help me do better with the things that do sound pleasant.
