Well, the 'flippant' character of that post was not immediately evident to me, at least until Clef replied. I thought I had made an honest point about practicing 5 finger exercises and didn't appreciate it being made fun of.

Not making fun of you, Jason--- not to worry.

You know, I do think there's a stage where looking at the hands is a good thing to do. My teacher wants me to look at how they're held, how the keys are struck (arm weight, what part of the finger hits the key), how the hands rotate. She even has a mirror so you can see the whole-body posture. Then there's making sure the fingering is what you think you're doing.

Once you memorize a piece, it hardly matters where you look. But, to correct my problem of depending on the eyes instead of having the fingers "know" (and then losing my place in the music), I try to keep to the discipline of following the score.

It seems that, at least, we agree on the value of using Hanon.
