    Bayer

    In our country, Bayer is used as a common noun
    (not only as a proper noun) to mean a basic organ
    practice book.
    Is it so in other countries also?
    Thank you.

    I have heard it, it's a proper noun, a guy named Bayer who made etudes for organ practice. We also have the Hanon for piano.

    I live in the midwest U.S.A. If someone told me they needed a bayer--I'd assume they meant asprin. (it is a brand name for asprin )

    Thank you very much, everybody, for the
    valuable information as always.
    So "She is playing Bayer's etudes." works, right?

    I wonder if "Bayer" is really a common word in Japan.

    Itasan,

    Are there any webpages which help me understand what you're talking about?

    Itasan,

    Thank you for the sources. This is the first time I've heard about Bayer.
