Czerny No. 18 from Op. 599 - Practical Piano Exercises
This is No. 18 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 on the treble clef.
The new challenge in the exercise No. 18 from Op. 599 is that the right hand plays 16th notes continuously non-stop with intervals of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th, in C 5-finger position. The right hand doesn't go outside of C 5-finger position. This is the last exercise from Op. 599 where the right hand part stays within C 5-finger scale. However, it is still difficult to make the 16th notes even and clear. To obtain that skill, you may want to practice some of the exercises from Hanon Exercises from Part 1. And lift each finger up when you go to the next note. And practice slowly to obtain the accuracy and clarity. Due to the difficulty of the right hand part, the left hand is fairly easy. It has only I (tonic), V (dominant), & V7 (dominant 7th) chords with staccato.
