Hanon Exercise No. 37
from The Virtuoso Pianist - Part 2 - Free sheet
This is Hanon Exercise No. 37 from The Virtuoso Pianist, Part II by C. L. Hanon. You can pick your preferred tempo. But first, it's best to practice slowly so that you can hear if you are playing every note evenly. We also highly recommend practicing with hands separately first so that you can also hear if you are playing all the notes evenly. Make sure to lift the previous finger when you go to the next finger to maximize the strengthening exercise. If you are doing well you may practice with hands together and also increase the tempo gradually.
Hanon Exercise No. 37 is a unique and difficult exercise. You'll be practicing moving your thumb (the finger-1) while holding the 3-note triad (chord) until the end. The 3-note triad is played by finger 2, 4, and 5 for both hands. The only moving finger will be the thumb for the entire exercise. Be patient and practice slowly and hands separately first. Lift your hand (palm) a little to create a space for your thumb to move more comfortably throughout the exercise and for the thumb to create a clear clean sound on the keys.
On the score, the 3-note triad is not written from the 2nd measure. However, please assume that you'll be holding (tied notes) the same 3 notes until you finish the entire exercise.
