Musicarta Beat & Rhythm Workbook
A Swinging Hanon

Page Five - Nos.23 to 33

This is the final page in the Swinging Hanon module, and offers ten more 'organic' rhythmic patterns for you top practice in the static five-finger position and 'apply' to a Hanon of your choice - and (hopefully) incorporate in your playing more generally.

Make use the together-left-right (TLR) analysis to sort out "what comes with what", and in what order. Always feel free to abandon rhythm and tempo altogether and just rehearse the 'events' until it feels natural.

Then reintroduce some tempo and metrical discipline. You might come up with something quite different  - bonus!

Pattern No.23

Mixing 'kicks' in the left and right hands.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.24

The inverse of pattern No.23 - actually also pattern No.1 with a left hand 'kick'.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.25

Mixed bars of Patterns 23 and 24.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.26

A recap of pattern No.2 with a 'kick' in the left hand

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.27

A variation on pattern No.26.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.28

New short-long 'kick' style.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.29

Incorporating the new-style 'kick' over even quavers.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.30

Pattern No.29 with an old-style left hand 'kick' as well.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.31

The top note (G) anticipated and repeated. The even quavers in the right hand seem almost exotic!

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.32

More off-the-beat anticipation in the second half of the bar.

Apply this rhythmic pattern to a Hanon exercise of your choice.

Pattern No.33

Mixing bars of Patterns 31 and 32.

Shorthand diagrams

Here are two diagrams you might recognise.

The first shows the first five Swinging Hanon 'beat maps'. Download the pdf here.

The second shows the first page of Hanon shorthand contour diagrams. Download the pdf here.

Now, you can choose any Swinging Hanon rhythm and 'apply' it to any Hanon exercise, working exclusively from the shorthand diagrams. Do three or four in a session to build up your rhythmic 'muscle'.

There are three other courses in your Musicarta Beat and Rhythm Workbook.

Use all four courses interchangeably on a daily basis to hone and develop your creative rhythmic and syncopation skills!
