The Musicarta Hanon Finger Exercises for Piano

This course is for you

The Musicarta Hanon is a video presentation of the famous Hanon finger exercises for pianists.

The original 30 Hanon finger exercises are demonstrated on a virtual piano with fingering and further graphic cues so that anyone can start making use of these popular, effective exercises.

In addition, there are ten sets of variations - in time signature, at intervals, in syncopated rhythms and to stretch the hand and so on - so your daily technical exercises need never get boring and can truly "light two candles with one match".

All pianists need ongoing technical exercise to maintain and build their technique. It's never too late to start - or catch up! Watch the introductory video for a more visual description of the course content and to find out where you fit in!

Musicarta is for musicians who want to develop their creative and expressive skills. The Hanon variations offered on this course encourage an inquiring, can-do approach, and pupils should be willing to 'take the ball and run with it'!

This course is suitable for complete beginners to advanced players. The sooner a beginner learns to love a set of finger exercises like Hanon, the better!

The Musicarta Hanon also offers challenging variations like canon and two-handed syncopation to keeping practicing stimulating and foster pure keyboard creativity.

    Exercises are well explained; I'm a beginner and I'd recommend watching the videos and practicing along a few times. Really useful though, I really enjoyed the course!

    This course worked great for me and improved my piano skills quite a bit. I used have a book for this kind of stuff but this course is so much better.

Meet your instructor

Bob Chappell (aka Mister Musicarta) has been "messing round with chords" since he got turfed off the school piano for playing four-handed boogie with a pal. A lifetime musician, playing for functions and ballet classes around the world and in every modern style under the sun, Bob now teaches and plays in Cape Town, South Africa. Years of teaching a creative curriculum called 'composing at the keyboard' have been honed down to what works best to free that musician within, underpin steady progress, and cultivate the pleasures of a musical life. Looking forward to seeing you on the courses!
