Hey I've been playing piano for quite a few years and the most difficult piece I can play is Rondo alla Turca ( Mozart ) . Unfortunately I cannot afford a teacher anymore but I realy love piano . Can you suggest me any course (books,dvd's,etc.)? I'm mostly interested in classical piano and technique .

Thanks smile and sorry for my bad english I'm from Greece.

I hate to say this, but most of your posts look to me to be one-liners intended to advertise your website. I also see that your website does sell things so it's NOT totally free.

As far as technique goes, do you currently practice either of these:
- Hanon's Virtuoso Pianist in 60 Exercises
- Pischa's 60 Progressive Exercises

Also, are you fluent in scales, cadences, and arpeggios?

Those may be some good ideas for starting.

As far as method books, I'm not familiar with any that go that advanced. However, compilations like Alfred Publishing's "Encore" series or "Masterpieces with Flair" will have lots of good music your level.

You may want to look into repertoire books like Celebration Series Perspectives. I'd say Level 6 or 7 would be good for you, depending on what else you've studied besides the Rondo alla Turca. Have you done Bach Inventions yet? Or his Little Preludes?

Be sure to also get the Etudes book at the same level, and the Student Workbook might also be of use to you. The books are all in chronological order and not in order of difficulty, so you don't want to play start to finish. If you do a search for the Teachers Handbook you might be able to find an order of difficulty in the pieces that you should learn. If not, just go in whatever order seems best. These books are great editions and explore a lot of different time periods including new music.

No I haven't done Bach's inventions or little preludes. I also want to do some technique excercises , which books do you consider best for this ?

I'd look into the Level 6 of this series then. The Etudes book will help with technical exercises, but they are only as useful as a good teacher who can help you do it technically correct. Anyone can play a scale, but if the technique is off, the scale as a technical exercise will be fruitless, and even harmful.

I understand you cannot afford lessons now, but I just wanted to make the point that doing something like Hanon will be of limited value when teaching yourself.
