    Here are some ex that I use for my students...but dun just focus on the mechanical aspect......focus on the sound. These technics are only there as a means of getting the desired sound/effect.
    1. For purely mechanical work:
    ...Hanon
    ...Schmitt
    ...School of Velocity

    2. For technic and musicality
    ...Burgmuller
    ...Bertini ( for intermediate players )
    ...Cernzy ( pls note that there are different series for this )
    ...Bach preludes,inventions
    ...Stephen Heller studies

    3. For advanced player
    ...Pischna ( to prepare for diploma technics... u`ll understand when u look at the book.)
    ...Liszt`s technical drills( These are not his Transcedental etudes...alot of pp do not know about these, check it out...they`re pretty good. )
    ...Rach`s etudes ( think of em as advanced repertoires instead)
    ...Chopin`s etudes ( same here)
    ...Liszt`s etudes ( same here )

    Burgmüller is really charming. I liked him to play, because his character pieces were really joy to play.

    Czerny oh well, so many books!!! I think one of the best studies to form your technics, good for Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt.

    P.S. A curiouse interest @DW: You seem to be a professional in teaching. So you teach violin AND piano, right? For long? And also a soloist. :P wow
