I am 50 and started playing some 6-7 months back. Had around 24 lessons so far. Bought Hanon's Virtuoso Pianist a few months back on my own initiative but didn't try to play. Was trying it out this morning but was stumped by the recommended tempo. Thus seeking clarification. It seems that the music is in a series of semi-quavers. So if the metronome tempo is 60 bpm of crotchets (at the slowest), it means 240 semi-quaver notes per minute. Am I right?!! How is that "beginner" stuff? Playing 240 notes per minute!!
Or am I getting it all wrong?
