- How to train your fingers to work together without having to spend several years conditioning them.
- How to instantly change your exercising methods (for the better) OVERNIGHT without increasing the amount of time you practice.
- How to dramatically increase the speed of your major, minor, blues, pentatonic, and other scales in as little as a few weeks.
- How to play HUGE chords like maj11 and maj13 chords with ease and comfortability (even play chords on your left hand smoothly).

- Increase the speed of your major, minor, blues, pentatonic, and other scales by two and three times. Have you ever wondered how some musicians get that lightening-fast speed? Now's your chance to practice like the pros.
- Take control of your fingers. If you suffer from shaky and uncoordinated fingers, you'll definitely benefit from these exercises. Build strength, control, and dexterity now.
- Move across the keyboard like the professionals do. Be cautioned, however --- They've spent years perfecting what they do. You'll still need to practice but now you can improve your speed in a fraction of the time by following a proven method.
- Strengthen the power of both your left and right hands with these exercises so that you're never handicapped when it comes time to play a faster song, run, or solo.
- Learn the secrets to obtaining excellent timing both with the help of a metronome and without.
- It's not JUST what you play, it's how you play it! A "major scale" played slow may sound basic and elementary sure enough. But do you know if you speed up a major scale by 3 or 4 times, that it will sound amazingly beautiful and can pass as "fancy?" ... Trust me, I've seen them played like this time and time again.

What are Hanon Exercises?
They are exercises specifically designed to train the pianist in speed, precision, agility, independence, dexterity, and strength of all of the fingers (and wrist too!).
They were created in the late 1800s by Charles-Louis Hanon, thus the short name "Hanon exercises."
They may come across as scales at first glance but are strategically designed to focus on certain fingers, depending on what exercise you're on. Some focus on several fingers at once (like the pinky and ring finger, which are known to be the "weakest links"). And other exercises focus on other areas.
One thing is for sure... Once you've mastered each exercise at the maximum speed suggested, you'll feel it and your piano playing will DEFINITELY show it!
Why they are so important to YOU...
Often times, when people practice, they are working on chords and progressions, and that is totally fine.
And outside of classical music, unless an "ear-musician" (someone who ONLY plays by ear) is exposed to exercises like this, they have no systematic way to get their fingers strong, independent and faster (...so they can play runs, licks, and scales with speed and precision).
Maybe they'll practice scales but these can get boring and repetitive over time. The end result is that ear-musicians will usually warm up with a few scales but the bulk of the attention will be put elsewhere.
And this isn't our fault!
1) Most ear-musicians have no idea what or who Hanon is... or his exercises!
2) Even if one is recommended Hanon by a friend (like I was several years ago), they must know how to read sheet music to play the exercises (or find a way to get them written out in letter format).
3) Then, if they find out how to play the exercises, they often times do them incorrectly and learn bad habits that have to be reversed later on (or worse, ignored).
By learning Hanon from a professional who is classically-trained but also understands the need for other types of musicians to be exposed to it, you get the best of both worlds!
