French piano pedagogue and composer,Charles-Louis Hanon,  was born in northern France on the second day of July 1819, in the village of Renescure.   He is best known for his work "The Virtuoso Pianist in 60 Exercises", which has become the most widely used set of exercises in modern piano teaching. However, although he is famous for his contributions to the piano, he was originally trained as an organist. This only leaves us to speculate why he shifted his focus to the piano.  In spite of the immortality Hanon has acheived through his popular piano exercises, he had other interests that  demanded his attention. Hanon was also a a devout Roman Catholic, a Third Order Franciscan and a member of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Charles Hanon died in Boulogne-sur-Mer on the 19th of March in the year 1900. Today, Hanon’s famous training exercises are still practiced
throughout the world, by students and professionals alike.
