Finally had time to record #6–10. It took me a week to get used to the feel of my new Yamaha N3X keyboard (need a bit more time to get used to the pedalling but getting there). So far I love it – I don’t think it’s my imagination that my touch is lightening up; I’m also trying to play with less tension (hard to do with a blinking red light!).

PLAYLIST: [Soundcloud]

01. Samuil Maykapar – Waltz, Op. 28, No. 5 from Essential Keyboard Repertoire, Volume 2 (Alfred Publishing) [Soundcloud]
02. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Super Stomp Rag (piano with SFX) (JA1) [Soundcloud]
03. Wynn-Anne Rossi – In the Hall of the Jazz Kings (JA1) [Soundcloud]
04. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Practice the Piano Blues (JA1) [Soundcloud]
05. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Bird in the Bebop (JA1) [Soundcloud]
06. Wynn-Anne Rossi – California Cool (JA1) [Soundcloud]
07. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Jazzy Classic (JA1) [Soundcloud]
08. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Battle in Carnegie Hall (JA1) [Soundcloud]
09. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Metamorphic Rock (JA1) [Soundcloud]
10. Denes Agay – Bouffons (Gigue) from Petit Trianon Suite. [Soundcloud]

JA1 = Jazzin’ Americana Book 1 (Alfred Publishing).

#10 from Denes Agay is a little Gigue that I thought I had down well until I found a YouTube video from UIPianoPed where it was played twice as fast (in about 45 seconds!). So it was good to have another week to bring it up to speed; also chuffed I managed it in one take too. I may keep it around now as a warmup exercise!

Hi mel_lem this sounded wonderful (and complex!) to me. Great job.

ZoeCalgary Thanks! I am starting to work on the next invention soon!

Really nice - you play those playful little ditties with such a light touch! I usually run out of patience before I can get those types of pieces up to speed...

have put in about a year with the Wohl Tempierte Klavier I so far. not all of the 48 have received equal attention. these will be my 40+ pieces per year every year as long as my joints and brain hold up. other stuff is either warm up (Schubert or LvB serve well) or supplemental for now, as the preludes and fugues improve the supplements will get more practice time. happy journeys to all in their piano quests.

Two by Grieg, from his Lyric Pieces op.43.
11. Grieg, Little Bird. Great fun to play as the little bird chirrups up and down the keyboard.
10. Grieg, Solitary Traveller. Yearning melodies and harmonies.

These two pieces are fairly straight forward. However op.43 begins with the Butterfly which will forever be beyond me, alas.

9. Satie, Gymnopedie no.3.
8. Granados, Valses poeticos no.6 in F# minor
7. Shostakovich, Prelude no.7 from 24 Preludes, op.24
6. Nielsen, En lille langsom Vals, op.11 no.3
5. Granados, La Mendiga(The little beggar girl), from "Stories for the young".
4. Mendelssohn, Kinderstuck op.72 no.1
3. Harburg and Arlen, Over the Rainbow
2. Mark Tanner, Zebra Crossing (Pianist magazine no.90)
1. Satie, Gnossienne no.3

Some things to add to my list for this year, hoorah!

6. Kabalevsky, On the Ice, Op 89, No 18
7. Burgmuller, Arabesque, Op 100, No 2
8. Donkin, A Secret Letter
9. Petzhold, Minuet in Gm

I'm having a complex relationship with recording.

At first, I didn't want to take the time to do it, but then found that it's actually quite useful to polish a piece that's nearly there. I'm sure everyone else records perfectly on the first take (don't they?) but it takes me hours! But the process is good, and it does a lot to get the piece to a better place.

So I recorded two of the above (6 and 7), but despite doing the exact same thing that I did last time (at least I think I did), I got errors when trying to put the videos on Flickr. It probably has to do with using a cheap and cheerful phone to do the recordings. Grrr.

So, having convinced myself that making recordings is not taking time away from practicing, tussling with technology definitely does take time away from practicing. So, I'll have to solve this over time and for now no recordings to be posted. frown

Ah well, never mind! I'm still very enthusiastic about doing this challenge, the mix of easier and stretch pieces is striking a good balance. Keep going!

Next to tackle:
* Kabalevsky, Limping Little Goat - it's in 5! laugh
* Donkin, Heroes of the Galaxy
* Mier, Don't Want to Leave You Blues

And keep plugging away at:
* Clementi, Sonatina in C, first movement
* Tchaikovsky, Morning Prayer

elenmirie - I agree with you that recording really helps to help polish a piece. I do not know how many times I have thought a piece was "there", only to push the red button and find out where the weaknesses were. Also, you can hear so much more when you attention is focused on the recording, than when you listen while playing. I had not intended to make recordings of everything this year, but it has proved to be so valuable, that I am continuing it. It does require bringing each piece to a higher level, which I think is quite valuable.

Hi,
so, my first four pieces of the year are:
1. Brahms Hungarian dance no. 5 easy version by Galya
2. U2 October arr. by Ludy
3. Hlavac Jahodiní (Walderbeerenetüde)
4. Burgmüller op.100 no.1

They still need some work but I wanted to post something, finally. Also wanted to include an mp3 of me playing them, but I do not know how. I have some troubles with how this forum works, for example It seems that I can only reply and not post independently frown

Hi Kuna1 - to include an mp3, firstly you need to have that available on the internet so that you can link to it (box.com or soundcloud are some options). Then when you are writing your post, click the "use full editor" button, and that will take you to a screen with various message options. There you will have an option to include a link to your mp3 in the message.

To start a new thread, you need to be on the page for the forum you want to post an (so eg http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/30/1/Adult_Beginners_Forum.html to post to the Adult Beginners Forum), and then click the "New Thread" button

Hope this helps!

Two new pieces today - another blues piece from "Improvising Blues Piano" and a jazzy Disney piece. My daughter is doing "Ev'rybody Wants to be a Cat" for her singing exam, so with the music was lying around the house and the tune stuck in my head there was clearly only one thing for it! It's a simple arrangement, and I had the basic shape of it in a couple of days, but it took me another couple of weeks to get it to this semi-decent level.

1. Blue Third Blues - Tim Richards
2. New Orleans Triplet Workout - Tim Richards
3. Five Finger Blues - Tim Richards
4. On-Off Boogie - Tim Richards
5. Happy Blues - Tim Richards
6. Keegan's Waltz - Trad Irish
7. Favourite Irish Waltz - J. Bellak
8. Sixth Blues - Tim Richards
9. Ev'rybody Wants to be a Cat - Al Rinker (from "Aristocats") (Soundcloud)
10. Jump Shuffle - Tim Richards (Soundcloud)

I wasn't going to join this, as I thought there was no way I was going to do 40 pieces a year - last year, after starting (again) in September, I had only learnt three pieces.

However over the past few weeks with people posting each new piece they had completed, I felt I had been learning a lot by practicing with Piano Marvel (there is another thread on that, so I won't go into it here). So today, for the first time I went to look at how many pieces I had learn't since the beginning of the year. In essence I have learnt all the pieces in the method section from level 3 to level 5 (bar a couple of level 4 pieces I did last year and a two more level 5 pieces I haven't done yet).

A few of them are repeats with either a different key, a different complexity of base line, or just overall more complicated arrangement as I have increased in level, but it turns out that I have already learnt and mastered (so I score 100% on piano marvel) 90 new pieces. I won't list them all here, but for the record the range went from

01 A Little Tea Pot
...
90 Silver Lit Night.

My rate of progress is slowing, as I get to the end of level 5, as each new piece is more difficult than the last. After level 6 I will have to start playing more conventionally as level 6 is as far as Piano Marvel goes.

This excludes the Beethoven Pathetique Sonata 2nd Movement which I have been working on all this time too.

01 A Little Tea Pot
...
90 Silver Lit Night. Soundcloud

Very quickly this morning made a recording of this last piece. Not perfect - only scored 98% this time, but just thought I should keep a record. - I'll maybe go back and fill in some of the others, particularly those I particularly liked
