I just read that this method is used in Asia, but it is quite outdated. What is it?


I don't know what the meaning of life is- I'm too busy to figure it out.

It's an old German method written by Ferdinand Beyer. Think of it as the German equivalent of the John Thompson method here in the US.


"If we continually try to force a child to do what he is afraid to do, he will become more timid, and will use his brains and energy, not to explore the unknown, but to find ways to avoid the pressures we put on him." (John Holt)

Isn't this where you put an aspirin on the back of each hand and try to keep it firmly in place as you play. laugh

Actually, I've never heard of it.

Piano*Dad,

You are confusing the Beyer Method with the Bayer Method.

The Bayer Method is to play a piece until your dog comes to your bench and well, you know, bays.

The physician who invented this method, had a wife who was a pharmacologist. She actually developed aspirin to address the onset of the headache caused by her husband and dog...she went on to affectionately named the aspirin "Bayer remedy" and the Bayer part stuck.

Oh that method. My cousin used it.
It's just starting with the book by Beyer I think, which I have at home. Just boring exercises similar to Hanon for beginners (but than easier at begin).

I don't think it's a very good one.
