I was raised on Simandl. Am I correct in my impression that it is the most widely used method, more or less the standard? If so, why? What is it about the Simandl Method that makes it more widely used over Bille and Nanny? I have Bille vol. 1 (or maybe II I can't remember now). I admit not having given it a serious look, it was left at my house and I've only sight read from it a few times. But the issue of the third finger aside, it seems good. I haven't seen the Nanny Method, though in the 20 Etudes of Virtuosity there is an occassional suggested fingering I wonder about. Why Simandl?
