On czerny as a composer

I recently got a bit into listening to Czerny's etudes as actual compositions and it turns out a lot of them are quite elegant and beautiful. I feel like I have missed a whole world of piano music to listen to, because I was not taught to play art of finger dext nor any Hanon when I started out. The first piece titled ''etude'' that I started with was actually already Chopin's 25 no 1 and by then I already had quite the technique so I just felt like ranting a bit about how we should appreciate Czerny a bit more. It feels like he has just been neglected together with Hanon and Kabalevsky for being ''practice material''. 

Btw here is my latest composition, a mazurka in the style of late romantic composers:

Memory Tricks For Music?

Hidey Ho Boys and Girls

Do you have any memory tricks ( mnemonics ) for memorizing pieces your working on? Instead of just brute force repetition how do you practice the most effectively ?What ideas do you have for memorizing the circle of fifths?

I'm interested in finding ways to use brain training with my musical studies so I'm curious to find out what tricks you guys have out there.
