How to practice piano more effectively :

  • Practice each hand separately first.
  • Practice this exercise slowly in the beginning (metronome on 60). If you played it easily, and precisely with the metronome, move the tempo up one notch. Continue to practice in this way until you reach 108 bpm.
  • Try to practice Hanon Exercise N°8 in the other keys, starting with the white keys (C, D, E, F, G, A, and B) and then going to the black keys (D-flat, E-flat, G-flat, A-flat, and B-flat).
  • Practice with various dynamics. Practice soft, loud and everything in between.
  • As you practice, vary the touch. Play staccato, play legato, and play two-note slurs.
  • Practice in different rhythms.
  • And as Charles-Louis Hanon recommends it, practice the exercises by lifting the fingers high and with precision, playing each note very distinctly.

 

We hope the above tips will help make your piano practice more efficient.

    No. 8 is not downloadable - I get an error message. Can you repair this, please? Thank you very much.

    Could you please make No. 8 downloadable? Without it we will be missing a piece of the whole puzzle (the complete exercises for C)
    Your helped will be much appreciated.

    I used the Hanon Exercises (Nos. 1-20) when learning & practicing the piano in my teens. Now, 40 years later, I still remember most of them!

    I've been trying to download them to build back the strength in my fingers, and have the entire set (Exercises No. 1-20 in the key of C), with the exception of Exercise No. 8.

    In lookiing over the other comments for Exercise No 8, it is apparent that, for the past couple of years, there have been multiple people who have also been unable to download Exercise No. 8 (in C). Maybe the link has never worked?

    It worked for me.

    The link points to exercise no.9. Please give the exercise no. 8 link.

    exercise 8 will not transpose to the key of G. You could say that it would be a good exercise to transpose it myself but it would be great to have this fixed.
