Hello everybody, Today I had my week class with my piano teacher, and she started to work with me using Oscar Beringer – Neringer Technical Studies for Piano.

What you guys think about it? Do you use it? Or already used in the past?

I mean, of course I totally trust my teacher, but I’m a curious individual and I want to know different kinds of approach. She told me that what I can learn from Czerny I can learn better faster from Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot the other book we’ll start soon, Principes rationnels de la technique pianistiquethe problem is that Czerny is more “musical”, while Beringer is boring, although valuable, stuff.

The other thing she told me was that this authors are modern and have written better methods than the old folks like Czerny, Hanon, etc, whose study might lead to wrong technical playing? Well, that’s it, hope one can answer these questions, I’ll be very thankfull.


Oscar Beringer and Alfred Cortot – Piano World Piano & Digital Piano Forums

A Google search brings up brief discussions of the Beringer. The general consensus seems to be that the exercises are helpful, and harder than they appear. The samples on Google Books look like the Schmitt exercises; I wonder how they differ. 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.

Sorry I can’t be more help. Al-mahed, my teacher has given me a handful of the exercises from the Rational Principles of Cortot.

I find them challenging but they do seem to help with certain skills. My teacher is completely sold on Cortot. She told me that when she was studying piano at university in Romania she set herself a goal of devoting one hour per day to Cortot for one year and swears that it changed her hand completely, for the better, in strength and independence.

I don’t have more than an hour beribger my day to give to piano, so obviously I’m not going to be following her example, but I do the few exercises she has given me to target specific issues finger independence, thumb mobility, for example. They’re definitely not musical at all — Czerny is much nicer. But I don’t mind spending time on things that don’t sound pleasant, if they help me do better with the things that do sound pleasant. Hi thumper49, I think if they are challenging this is very positive.


T├Ągliche Technische Studien (Beringer, Oscar)

One thing I’m noticing more and more is that you have to keep on moving in learning piano, always getting challenging stuff make my old difficulties easier, and so on My teacher told me that a former teacher of her hid technique, that is, she discovered that hers former teacher, which who she spent 11 years of lessons, hid Cortot from her!!!

I found this so absurd that I became very curious about this book!

In fact, I have cerny, hanon, beringer, beronger, etc, but cortot seems to be the only author who gives an organized practicing schedule. With the other materials you depend pretty much of the teacher. It’s very good to have a teacher, but also, have a material with an organized practicing schedule is pretty important since we have to be a little indepent ourselves either.

Thank you for sharing experience. Originally Posted by thumper
