Rhythmic Variations
Series Two - Page One

Rhythmic Variations Series Two is written in four-four (common) time, for ease of counting. While the original Hanon exercises are written in two-four, this needn't cause any confusion, as the rhythm and speed can be exactly the same.

The AA-LL rhythmic templates are all demonstrated on Hanon Exercise 1. The Tapping Drills are included in the Pattern Build-up videos.

Download the music for the AA Rhythmic Variations Series here.

Here is an introductory video covering the unison AA, BB and CC patterns build-up.


  Rhythmic templates AA to DD  

    Exercise HCV-AA    

The AA series starts with unison combination of quavers, dotted quavers and semiquavers (eighth, sixteenth and thirty-second notes).

Listen to the performance video while studying the beat map before attempting a performance.

More help with the build-up of syncopation in the covering video above.






  Transferring the pattern

Here is the HCV-AA rhythmic template applied to Hanon No.9.




    Exercise HCV-BB



Still a unison pattern, but the dotted-quaver/semiquaver pair is in a different place.

Watch the covering video above for a run-down on the first three patterns.



  Transferring the pattern

Here is the HCV-BB rhythmic template applied to Hanon No.10.




    Exercise HCV-CC



There are two dotted-quaver/semiquaver pairs in the middle of the bar. Unison.



  Transferring the pattern

Here is the HCV-CC rhythmic template applied to Hanon No.11.




    Exercise HCV-DD



A quaver rest and two semi-quavers are introduced. Hands still in unison.



  Pattern build-up

A video showing how to practice the hands separately and together in a static five-finger position.


  Transferring the pattern

Here's an audio example of the HCV-DD rhythmic template applied to Hanon Exercise No.12.
