    Exercise 1

Here is the full music (MS) for Exercise One

This is the 'contour diagram'.


  Shorthand MS

Using shorthand MS (="manuscript" - the written-out music) will take your mind off "the dots" and help you focus on your playing.


 Rhythmic variation 1

Try a variation using the beat map on the right to liven up your performance.

(The Udemy Hanon video course will direct you to an explanatory video page.)


 Rhythmic variation 2

Here is a rhythmic variation in four-four.

(The Udemy Hanon video course will direct you to an explanatory video page.)



 Held thumbs

 Interval variation

Play Exercise 1 in sixths (above) or tenths (below).
