THE MUSICARTA HANON
Held-thumb Exercises

Page 1 - Nos.1 to 9

The popular keyboard styles right hand often plays both chord tones (or a chord tone) in the lower/thumb side, and changing melody notes with the little finger side - both at the same time.

Working up the ability to play like this is a step-change in the popular-styles pianist's skill and playing.

Here is Page One of the Hanon exercises with held thumbs. Four varieties are offered - watch the red highlight box down the left-hand side of the video frame.


    Exercise 1



    Exercise 2



    Exercise 3



Because of its particular shape, there is no held-thumbs variation for Exercise 4.

    Exercise 5



    Exercise 6
