Good job! I like how your tempo brings out the bluesy flavor of that piece.

Yamaha PianoDiary for IOS does this too; I have a bluetooth connection from piano to iPhone or iPad.

Hello, I really would like to join, this is a very exciting challenge that sounds like a perfect fit for me! Nothing like learning only a couple pieces in a semester, but I rather expand and grow in learning more repertoire as well.

Hello again everyone. Glad to see how much progress you are making.

Here's my 4th piece this year with Bach's 5th Invention (one of my favorites!)


My 5th piece of the year is Bach's Chorale no. 174 which I partially sight read. https://soundcloud.com/melchiorblade7/js-bach-choral-no-174

Ive been practicing my sight reading with the Bach Chorales. Very short and compact keyboard music that rarely has many 16th notes or advanced rhythms. Highly recommended for those looking to challenge themselves and advance sight reading (plus its beautiful)

There are a couple others that are getting close, but need a little extra polishing. The Bach Prelude in D minor BWV 926 is surprisingly challenging, especially at the end where there's this super-fast arpeggiated pattern. I've been working on that one all month!


Love your list of pieces. I'm currently working on the Bach Prelude in D Minor myself. I have to say that the fast arpeggiated pattern at the coda is so much fun but challenging! Love this prelude. I actually considered going for the preludes this year but decided to lower the difficulty a bit and record the 15 inventions instead. Here's to a fun and productive year of music!

Hi,
I would love to join your 40-pieces-a-year club smile not really sure how this forum works, even less that I might actually achieve the goal, but why not, please add me to the others.
Thanks
Jitka
BTW if you have any recommendation for pieces for somebody on approx. third, early fourth level, I would appreciate it

Medden - nicely done. I really like the playlist idea. Keep it up.

Melchiorblade7 - Bach is always a treat, nice playing.

Newcomers, welcome to the club!

For some ideas, try Piano Syllabus. You can search for pieces based on levels. Of course levels, to some degree, are subjective.
You can also look at the syllabus from different established programs, here is RCM for one: RCM-Piano-Syllabus-2015.pdf

I think you'll find that you'll need to learn 40 pieces that are a bit below your level (assuming it takes you a while to learn third-fourth level). You want to be able to learn one short piece a week approx. I recommend Alfred's book Essential Keyboard Repertoire Volume 8 - 95 pieces, all only 1 or 2 page. Lays flat too.

https://www.alfred.com/essential-keyboard-repertoire-volume-8-miniatures/p/00-4619/

Don't be put off by the Volume "8" - it doesn't mean it's the hardest or that the others are easier. Each volume takes a different focus. This one is focused on short pieces.

"This edition includes 95 early to late intermediate miniatures that are each one to two pages in length. The comb binding creates a lay-flat book that is perfect for study and performance. 144 pages."

I would also highly recommend the University of Iowa pedagogy project, where the professors at the University are systematically videotaping music by level of difficulty

Alright, I'm satisfied with it. Moving on, more or less.

Four new pieces this week. Two of which (Bartók 61 and Tansman) I'd learned back in December, but couldn't record back then due to my piano being out of tune. I've spent the last 10 or so days relearning these two pieces. The other piece by Bartók is probably my favourite of his so far; the accompaniment is just too beautiful. The Gurlitt I learned for the monthly Piano Jam on Reddit and was a ton of fun to learn.

1 Boyle – Song of the Knife-Grinder (In Times Past No. 10)
2 Gurlitt – The Fair (Op. 101 No. 8)
3 Swinstead – An Old Garden (Work and Play No. 1)
4 Türk – Children’s Ballad (Sixty Pieces for Aspiring Players, Book 1 No. 10)
5 Bartók – Line Against Point (Mikrokosmos Book 2, No. 64a)
6 Purcell – Prelude in G Major (Baroque Keyboard Pieces (ABRSM), Book 1, Z.660/1)
7 Tansman – Frolic (Happy Time Book 1, No. 6)
8 Tansman – Arabia (Happy Time Book 1, No. 5)
9 Bartók – Pentatonic Melody (Mikrokosmos Book 2, No. 61)
10 Bartók – Melody Divided (Mikrokosmos Book 2, No. 66)
11 Gurlitt – Turkish March (Op. 101 No. 9)


I've started playing January 2017, Nothing is too easy is where I keep track of my progress.

2) Swans On The Lake
3) The Fairies' Harp

Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course (All-In-One) Level 1
4) When The Saints Go Marching In

If anyone is interested in listening to them a link can be found in my profile.

A couple more, one recording. I also did a recording today of Sonatina in G Major, but that's a backup for the recital piece in case I bomb it. I will record the Burgmüller Etude next, and then I got to get busy recording something for the Waltz recital next month. Next on my list for RCM 5 is Prelude in D Flat Major (Rollin) and Sonatina In F Major, Anh. 5, No. 2 - First Movement (Beethoven)

1. Study in C (Op. 65, No. 3) - Albert Loeschhorn - Pianist Magazine
2. Écossaise (WoO 23) - Beethoven - Masterwork Classics Lvl 3 (RCM Level 2)
3. Nuvole Bianche - Ludovico Einaudi - Essential Einaudi (Islands)
4. German Dance in G Major (WoO 42, No. 6) - Beethoven - Masterwork Classics Lvl 4
5. Loch Lomond - Traditional - Alfred's Vol 2
6. Écossaise in E Flat (WoO 86) - Beethoven - Pianist Magazine Issue 100
7. Menuet in G Minor (BWV 842) (YouTube) - Bach - RCM Celebration Series Piano Repertoire Level 5
