In this short book you will find condensed and simplified versions of the Hanon piano finger exercises 1 -
What is Hanon?
The ‘Hanon Virtuoso Pianist’ is a collection of piano finger exercises designed to give equal strength, agility and flexibility to all five fingers of both hands. Written by Charles-
One really great thing about these exercises is that they are applicable to both absolute beginners and advanced players alike, particularly as the reading ability required is minimal. Whatever your ability, these exercises will help improve your technique and finger strength.
Having been written well over 100 years ago, the original work is now in the public domain and therefore digital copies can be acquired free of charge on the internet. However, most of these are very poor quality and the instructions are mainly in French or Russian -
So why do I need this book?
The whole point is to make it easy to read and to reduce page turns -

No, not at all. If you are familiar with these exercises you will know that they are repeated patterns which ascend and descend for two octaves diatonically.
To condense and simplify them and consequently eliminate an enormous amount of page turns I have shown:
I have also written them two octaves apart (for easy reading) and only shown them for one octave instead of two. In practice they should be played one octave apart and ultimately be practiced for two octaves.
You can print out any or all the pages as required (the link for the pdf printable version is given at the end of the book).
