This part includes repeated notes, repeated double notes, scales in thirds and octaves, tremolos, and more. After all three parts are mastered, Hanon recommends all exercises be played through daily to retain technique. Criticisms[ edit ] The most common criticism of the Hanon exercises is that having students drill on purely physical exercises results in an unmusical, mechanistic attitude toward the piano.
Critics  argue that practicing in an unmusical way dulls one's musical instincts, especially when forced upon children and beginners though in the introduction he does state that the book should be begun a year or so after beginning piano study , who need to cultivate their musicality rather than inure themselves to rote physicality. It is also argued that it is more efficacious to practice one's musicality as one practices one's technique; training in most art forms involves practicing technique, however repetitively, within artistic context.
It is further argued that musicality drives technique; the flow of musical expression is a potent motivator to finger agility. In the notes accompanying his work Hanon considered his exercises less "dry" than other "five-finger exercises".
Some detractors, such as Abby Whiteside have dismissed the very notion of finger independence which they are intended to encourage, insisting instead that only a technique based on the use of the humerus can be effective. This does not prepare you to be either a pianist or a musician.
Too often, teachers assign technical exercises as a shortcut to technical mastery. It is easier to assign pages from an exercise book than to analyze and break down the physical elements in a specific difficult passage of music Dorothy Taubman is one of the well known pedagogues who campaigns against technical exercises, asserting that they do far more damage than good.
