The progress so far:

1. Malaguena
2. Long Long Ago
3. Symphony #40
4. Gavotte (Adult Piano Adventures Book 2)
5. Coffee House Boogie (Adult Piano Adventures Book 2)
6. Looking Glass River (Adult Piano Adventures Book 2)
7. Kim Ba Yuh Traditional Kum Ba Yah
8. Theme from Scheherazade (Rimsky-Korsakov, arrangement)
9. In My red Convertible (Nancy Faber)
10. Sakura Sakura (Adult Piano Adventures Book 2)
11. Broken Chord Etude In A Minor (Adult Piano Adventures Book 2)

My latest two pieces:
12. Etude in A minor Louis Kohler (Original Form). I really like being able to play some original pieces because most of the time it is arrangements from the well-known classics. I believe there are plenty of simple but original pieces for adult beginners (after 5 years of daily practice I still categorize myself as a beginner)
13. Finale from the Symphony 9 (The New World) by Antonin Dvorak (Arrangement from the APA2). I think this is my favorite so far. The arrangement is very simple, but the piece is still alive. It motivated me to go and listen for the entire piece.

Adding #15. I could play High Heels all day long. I think I'll do this for the upcoming recital. It's interesting how after a week break (vacation), things seem to be easier to play. Perhaps piano fasting is just as beneficial as food fasting.

Hi,
It's been a while since I've submitted a post for the 40 Piece Challenge. I hope this is the correct thread.

9. Behold the Lamb of God, Bob Dufford
10. Behold the Wood, Dan Schutte
11. Father, I Put My Life in Your Hands, John Michael Talbot
12. Santa Lucia, Italian Boat Song
13. De Colored, Mexican Folk Song
14. Londonderry Air, Irish Folk Song
15. Doe Dicamus Gratias, Victor C. Johnson

This challenge and MOYD forum communities are wonderfully supportive. Life gets busy, but with daily practice I'm definitely seeing an improvement in my music reading skills. Thank you and have a wonderful week! 😁

Just updated the totals in the tracking post. Please let me know if there are any discrepancies.

We all have responsibilities and time commitments that take us away from our time at the piano. I hope there is no one that feels ashamed or embarrassed for not keeping pace. It is okay if we all don't achieve forty pieces in the year. Forty pieces is a challenge. As learners of a solo craft, it is easy to lose direction and focus. My hope for this group is to provide a means to keep moving forward with our practice and development. If we can help each other become better pianists, regardless of the number of pieces we complete, then our challenge has been achieved.

We have a new member to welcome! suzee409
It is never too late to join the group. There is much playing to be done.

Happy piano playing to all!

Added Christian Petzold's Minuet in G Minor. This is to celebrate me completing Piano Marvel Method 6A exercises 1 to 6, which is variations of the A and B sections of this piece with trills of different sorts added. So I decided to learn the original and record it with the Harpsichord voice on my Piano.

It's been a while, between travel, a minor hand injury, and just finding things a little slow coming together! I made the middle improv section a little more complicated than in previous blues pieces, and as a result it took me longer to be able to play it fluidly and up to tempo. I can still hear a bit of rhythmic unevenness which I probably shouldn't accept in myself, but I need to move on!

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")
10. Jump Shuffle - Tim Richards
11. Riff Blues - Tim Richards (Soundcloud link)

I have another one - and it's NOT Tim Richards for a change smile
This is the Menuet from Bach's French Suite no. 2. It's the easiest piece in the Suite - I've seen it rated as Grade 4 but it feels more like Grade 3 to me (apart from one tricky ornament maybe). I'm aiming to do a few pieces from this Suite for the Bach Recital early next year. This will need to get a lot more polished for that, but I will come back to it closer to recital time for that.

Lady Acadia - so nice to see De Colores on your list - it was the second tune that anyone ever requested of me (after You Are My Sunshine). It's a New Mexican standard. I got my version out of a Raffi songbook laugh

IllTemperedClavier - good going on the playing by ear! I spent my 40-pcs-year on that a couple of years ago - I learned a lot!

scorpio - Lazy Days! What a great tune and you were perfect! Great swing! Put a smile on my face.

I added another updated piece to my list. I've been working on my ragtime and adding variations (a consequence of my play-by-ear year, so I think ITC has a good thing going) and last night I played 3-pieces at a benefit concert and I was really pleased with this one:

1. Let Me Call You Sweetheart
2. Amazing Grace (new arrangement)
3. Annie Laurie (new arrangement)
4. America the Beautiful (new arrangement)
5. I Can't Give You Anything But Love
6. Weeping Willow

Another two pieces for April. Catching up on a few traditional pieces. Greensleeves has been on my todo list for a very long time, so finally checked that item.

14. Greensleeves (Folk English song)
15. The land of the silver birch (Folk Canadian song)

Both pieces are from Adult Adventures book II by Faber.

My teacher drew my attention to the list of the ~dozen easiest pieces at the front of the Essential Repertoire book. The Telemann was right at the top of that list, so I started there. Will be proceeding to the next ones.

Phuck it:

13."Menuet en Rondeau" by Rameau, page 14 of the Essential Repertoire book.

God I hate this piece. I tried it because it was next on the list of the dozen easiest in the Essential Repertoire book. But it doesn't sound good. I don't mean just when I play it: even when I look up a good performance of it on Youtube, the piece is very “clattery” and un-melodic and repetitive. I bitched about it to my teacher a couple weeks ago, and he said yeah it's more like an etude than a real piece of music.

I'm the one who chose to try learning it; it wasn't "assigned" to me or anything. And I'm the one who chose to keep it on my "list to work on", even after I'd got it up to a level where I could play it thru, and I knew I didn't like it. That was probably a mistake. The piece clogged up my "queue" and diminished my enthusiasm for piano practice. I'm not saying it's the REASON that I don't yet have "Cafe Vienna" and the Brahms Lullaby under my fingers — but yeah it might be the reason, or part of the reason.

Well, now I'm choosing to be finished with it. I played it today “one last time” for my teacher, as part of a ritual to put it to bed. I'm not good at it; it is at by-far the lowest level of polish of any piece that I have moved on from. I'm kind of ashamed of it. After I played it, on a whim I put my teacher on the spot and asked him what "percent" done he'd say that I got that up to. 70%? 60%?

He said 80%, which really surprised me. A very welcome and pleasant surprise, since that definitely puts it over any threshold I may have had for the "40 Pieces" challenge. So: yay, I get to count it! Now, begone with you.

Next up: Russian Folk Song by Beethoven, Op 107 #3. (page 70 in the Essential Repertoire book) Fun and catchy! Also Cafe Vienna and the Brahms Lullaby, from the Method book.

Thanks for giving me a good laugh today. This is the first piece my son learned that wasn't in a method book, and he was so proud. When he wasn't practicing, it was all he would play for months. He got to where he would play it at blazing speed, and when we got the new digital piano, he would play it with every one of the instrument sounds including drums and sound effects. If I never hear this piece again it will be too soon.

I wanted to find out roughly what level I was playing at so decided to try an ABRSM Grade 5 piece. To try something in a different style to my normal classical I chose Cool, a Jazz oriented piece with swing beat.

In reality this is a work in progress, my teacher wants me to spend this week working on the feel of the rhythm, but I feel like I made a break through yesterday to the point at which I wanted to add it to my list of pieces for the 40 a year challenge.
