I'm reading a music review of "Samba Hanon: 50 Exercises for the Beginning to Professional Pianist" by Peter Deneff - Hal Leonard. 95 pgs, $12.95 in the Aug/Sept 2007 "American Music Teacher" magazine (pg92)- MTNA.

Latin patterns: samba, bossa nova, lambada, bahia and partido alto. Subtle syncopations and voicings.

Studies have single-line bass note with right hand chords. Rhythms require a solid rhythmic grounding before playing. The reviewer says: "They are more appropriate for advancing-intermediate to advanced level piano students. The coordination between the hands can be challenging but rewarding."

Doesn't this sound unique? I think it could be quite a motivating tool. Would you be tempted to try it?

I definitely would! When I have some more cash I'll check it out, or maybe Hal Leonard can send me a test copy. I just blew some big cash on music today (Paderewski is expensive frown ) so I need to wait a little while before buying anything else.

I have "Boogie Woogie Hannon" by Leo Alfassy (have you tried that? It was recommended to me when I wanted to learn blues and rock but I sort of set the learning of those aside for now)but have not seen the "Samba Hannon". Sounds interesting. The Boogie Woogie Hannon I think would work well for the intermediate student and help with keeping interest. One would learn a lot of the different rhythms and patterns for bass line this way for that style. I would assume the "Samba" book would be the same way, good for learning rhythms and patterns for those styles. I played through the Boogie Woogie book but found it rather boring actually because of the monotony I, IV, V, I patterns in most if not every exercise regardless of rhythm and pattern but students might find it fun without it being way too difficult.

Betty - this is soooo unfair of you. You bring up a neat piece of music, then I have to spend an hour going through my library looking for something I know I have - somewhere - which is either the same or similar. smokin Jazz Hanon - also by Leo Alfassy, published by Amsco, ISBN 0.8256.2223.9

Now I'll have to refresh my memory of this - more procrastination! :rolleyes:

John:

So, Hanon hasn't lived until it's been put to Jazz Hanon and Samba Hanor, right? Put on your dancing shoes, everybody!

Now, I'll have to look up the Jazz Hanon, too. Two birds with one stone? Any other fun exercises out there?

Betty

Has anyone heard of the same type of thing for the lower-intermediate level student? I've seen many fun stuff out there, but it all looks a little challenging for my students. And I want them to have fun with technique and drills!

Katie, the Jazz Hanon is actually quite a bit more challenging than the original. I would say a student has to be a solid intermediate or above. Now that I've been reminded of it, it's a perfect answer to an advanced student who is swamped with school projects. He'll enjoy learning all the jazz chords and arpeggios. It almost sounds "good" while practicing. I have another version of Hanon, but I'll look for it tomorrow. I think it was published by Schirmer.

Okay fellow teachers, students, and piano fans, thanks to Betty, I spent another hour searching through my library (I really need to get organized some day) and here's the other Hanon:

Hanon Revisited by Arthur Gold and Robert Fizdale. Contemporary Piano Exercises based on The Virtuoso Pianist.

No ISBN given, but printed by G. Schirmer, Inc., and distributed by Hal Leonard, Cat #HL50331070.

PS Betty, you know I'm just teasing whome

I also love Jazz Hanon. I have the boogie woogie one as well, but haven't spent much time with it. I know I MUST get the Samba one!

More info on composer PETER DENEFF! He is the composer we owe all those fun Hanon's too. I enjoyed learning about him and his work from Google and wanted to share something about him with you.

Composer, performer, teacher, Peter Deneff has written seven best-selling books for Hal Leonard Publishing - Blues, Rock, Jazz, Salsa, Boogie Woogie, and Stride “Hanon’s”.

The study of many ethnic styles eventually led to the development of his classical and jazz compositional style as well as the formation of his Middle Eastern-Latin jazz group Excursion.

Deneff pursued undergraduate and graduate studies in classical composition and film scoring at California State University, Long Beach. He has also taught at Musician’s Institute, and at Orange County High School of the Arts. He teaches classical and jazz piano at Cypress College (California).

So, I think he's a great musician to know about if you work with student's in these genre's. I'm looking forward to looking them over in the music store this coming week!
