Is Hanon Necessary?
"Is Hanon Necessary?" is a collection of actual transcripts of some rare interviews of world-class pianists regarding their views on the relevance of separate technical exercises for the piano, such as the popular Hanon exercises which most piano teachers assign to their students. Some of the opinions expressed in this book shatter conventional wisdom regarding the effectiveness of separate technical exercises. This volume features the opinions and advice of the following artists: Abbey Simon, Richard Dowling, and Jon Nakamatsu. Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit the Pasadena City College Piano Department, in support of their faculty's outstanding contributions in the molding of future piano virtuosos and music educators.
