Hi ZoeCalgary. Thanks for listening smile I really like the two Rhythm and Blues books from Schaum. The pieces are relatively short and so far all I played were great fun to learn and play.

Here’s my “learned” list from February. Finishing off the Jazzin' Americana book plus added a little classical dance for variety (another one that started as a sightreading exercise!).

I’m also working my way through the Exploring Blues Piano book and enjoying it a lot. So far the exercises have been easy enough that I’m not counting them; maybe later when they get more difficult.

PLAYLIST: [Soundcloud]
* I haven’t recorded the new ones yet. I’m expecting delivery of my new piano tomorrow, and am in process of cleaning out my “piano corner”. Will record next week.

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)
07. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Jazzy Classic (JA1)
08. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Battle in Carnegie Hall (JA1)
09. Wynn-Anne Rossi – Metamophic Rock (JA1)
10. Denes Agay – Bouffons (Gigue) from Petit Trianon Suite.

JA1 = Jazzin’ Americana Book 1 (Alfred Publishing). Nice little book (9 pieces total, representing various styles). I like that there’s a helpful tip at the beginning of each piece called “Rhythm Workshop”, showing how the rhythm plays out between the left and right hands.

Here is a little jazz piece for my list. This was a good rhythmic challenge, because the rhythm in each hand is different, and a lot is off beat. You can probably hear me counting in places! He wrote the piece for his 12 year old granddaughter to play.

So my list now is:
1. Telfer -(Celebration Series 5)When Rivers Flowed on Mars
2. Heller - (Masterworks Classics 5)Etude in C Major
3. Chopin - (Celebration series 8)Prelude in B Minor op. 28 #6
4. Astor - Valses Venuzuelos # 1 Adriana ABRSM selections grade 8 2017-2018 Adriana
5. Scarlatti -(ABRSM grade 4)Scarlatti Sonata in D Minor K34
6. Kalinnikov - (Celebration Series RCM 8) Chansom Triste
7. Kember - (ABRSM grade 2 2011-2012) Bah-ba-doo-bah
8. Handel - (ABRSM Selections Grade 3 2017-2018) Sonatina in G "Fugue"
9. Darius Brubeck - (ABRSM Selections Grade 5 2013-2014) For Lydia

Here's my update. New pieces in bold

1. Bach - Invention No. 3
2. Bach - Invention No. 4
3. Mitsuda - Another Guldove
4. Bach Chorale No. 174
5. Bach - Invention No. 5
6. Bach - Invention No. 6
7. Hamauzu - Aqua Memory
This one's largely obscure and unknown; a masterpiece that deserves to be heard more imo



8 Bach - Invention No. 7
Still continuing the inventions. This one was fun to figure out

Finally, some pieces that are *not* from Tim Richards' Blues book :-)
Irish traditional music is famous for its jigs and reels, and while waltzes are a more recent import they became a firmly established style within the tradition. So when the waltz recital was announced, I went looking for some in the trad style to learn and contribute. I'm not sure these are entirely authentic, but they are nice little pieces, fairly simple and not too onerous to learn.

Links to follow when the Waltz Recital goes live.

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

My first update! These are what I learnt during Feb.

-----------------------------------Feb 2018----------------------------------
1. Robots - Anne Crosby Gaudet, RCM Level 1
2. Bears - Linda Niamath, RCM Level 1
3. Ecossaise in E flat Major - Ludwig van Beethoven, RCM Level 1
4. Lost - Elissa Milne, RCM Level 1
5. Menuet - Christian Petzold, BWV Anhang 114
6. Menuet - Christian Petzold, BWV Anhang 115
7. Czerny Op.599 1-16

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll just count Czerny as one every month since my teacher let me treat them as finger exercises.

By the way, is it OK to update in the same post with bold font or should I post a new one every time?

It's better to post a new one each time, because no one goes back to check old posts and also the edit option for your post goes away anyway, when the post is a few days old.

1 Sonata No. 11 - Variation V from Movement 1 (KV 331, 300i) (no recording) (by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
2 Farewell to Cheyenne <Recording> (by Ennio Morricone, arranged by Jan Koláček)
3 Sonata No. 11 - Variation VI from Movement 1 (KV 331, 300i) (no recording) (by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
4 Sonata No. 11 - Menuetto from Movement 2 (KV 331, 300i) (no recording) (by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
5 Sonata No. 11 - Trio from Movement 2 (KV 331, 300i) (no recording) (by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
6 Klavierstück "Lustig und traurig" (WoO 54, "Happy-Sad Bagatelle") <Recording> (by Ludwig van Beethoven)
7 La Candeur (Opus 100, No. 1) <Recording> (by Friedrich Burgmüller)

I recently sold my previous piano and part of the deal was, that I would include all the music books that originally came with the piano, from Kawai. While searching for and collecting those books, I noticed that one of them was the "famous" 25 easy etudes (Opus 100) by Burgmüller. I never played Burgmüller with my teacher (years ago) - she was more of a Czerny person apparently, but I had read about those etudes here on the forum, and in this very thread, lots of times. Which made me curious, so I sight read through a few. And must say that I enjoyed them. So I decided to start working on those etudes in parallel to my other projects, one after the other. Which incidentally fills out my 40-pieces challenge nicely. So here's the first one (which of course means that currently I'm working on the second one, the infamous (dreaded?) "Arabesque" - we'll see how that turns out...)

Soundcloud wouldn't let me upload my latest recording because it "might contain or be a copy of 'Invention in C Major, BWV 772a (1723 Version)' by Rosalyn Tureck."

I guess that means I sound like a pro! ha

1. Bach - Invention 2 in C Minor BWV 773 (Recording)

2. Gurlitt - March, Op. 101

3. Gurlitt - Morning Prayer, Op. 101

4. Bach - Invention 9 in F Minor BWV 780 (Recording)

5. Bach - Prelude in G Minor BWV 929 (Recording)

6. Bach - Invention 1 in C Major BWV 772

And another one. Robert Schumann's Album for the Young is always good for a short piece for the 40 pieces challenge...

And back with more blues. I've moved onto the next chapter which introduces sixth chords (up to now it's been triad based), and this really helps the bluesy sound. I think this piece is my favourite so far.
My brief term of jazz lessons was largely confusing and overwhelming, but one of the really basic and helpful things I learned was that when you improv a melody pretty much any note from the blues scale will sound good, and it was really fun coming up with the RH improv in the middle section of this piece

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 link
