(Books 1 - 3)Charles-Louis Hanon/ed. Gayle Kowalchyk & E.L. Lancaster - Alfred Music Publishing
Hanon for Students Books 1 - 3 contain exercises from The Virtuoso Pianist, Book 1. Exercises 1 - 6 are found in Book 1; 7 - 13 are in Book 2; and 14 - 20 are in Book 3. The exercises are notated as eighth notes in one octave so students may begin to practice them at the late-elementary level. Each exercise appears five times to be played with a legato touch, varied articulation, varied dynamics and varied rhythm. This series encourages proper technique and practicing.
