    The audio examples are good, but what are really needed are some video showing HOW to do Hanon exercises properly, to counteract all the horrible, incompetent YouTube videos claiming to teach it--some by people who are piano teachers!

    This is really helpful for veteran pianists out there. I have my experiences in playing a piano before, but I think music is just not really meant for me. I have also played guitars and violins before, but since I had my job, I just gave more focus on my career. Music is a thing that if you want to pursue, you should have the passion for it and that's probably the thing that I am lacking. This is helpful! I'm glad you have shared this!

    The idea of reading Hanon that's been transposed to all keys reeks of intellectual laziness to me. As far as I can tell, there's no reason why anyone who can play their major scales can't apply Hanon's patterns mentally and play the entire book through every key on the fly.

    And Hanon really becomes fun when you play a different pattern in each hand, or a different key in each hand, or with asynchronous hands, or contrary motion, or with a different note value in each hand, or with the hands as polyrhythms, or in different combinations of any of those.

    I shudder to think what's in a book of so-called "jazz chords" that's associated with the horrendous Real Book series. Those books have been rife with mistakes since day one, and have led several generations of young musicians down the wrong path. For example, now everybody thinks Stella by Starlight is in the key of B-flat and the first chord is E-7b5, when the more usual key is G and the correct first chord is tonic diminished. The Real Book is another prime example of intellectual laziness, and should be avoided like the Plague.
