Czerny No. 16
from Op. 599 - Practical Piano Exercises
This is No. 16 from Practical Piano Exercises, Op. 599 by Carl Czerny. Often this Op. 599 is titled in English as "Practical Exercises for Beginners" or "Practical Method for Beginners". However, we titled it as "Practical Piano Exercises" and removed "for Beginners" from the title. Only the exercises from No. 1 through No. 10 of Op. 599 are considered for beginners. After that, they get more advanced.
Please notice that both clefs are in the treble clef. And the right-hand stays in C 5-finger position (scale) for the entire time. The left-hand plays I (tonic), V (dominant), & V7 (dominant 7th) chords with the pattern that is the same as the exercise No. 13. Basically, the bass note is held with either finger-4 or finger-5 for the entire measure with a whole note while playing 2 other notes with other fingers to create chords.
The new challenge in No. 16 in Op. 599 is that the right hand will be playing 16th notes for the 1st time. In the beginning, practice the right-hand part slowly and gradually increase the tempo. Lift each finger up when the next finger goes down to press the key instead of rolling around or up and down without any control. Each finger needs to be individually controlled and independently moved. To improve this technique you may want to practice Hanon Exercises from Part 1.
