QuinGold, Ralphiano, and bSharp(C)yclist,

Thank you for help!

I would then like to include River Flows in You by Yiruma as my first piece of the year (although apparently everyone learns this piece 😂). I'll post recordings later!


Pieces in Progress:
Invention No. 11 in G Minor - Bach
Dearly Beloved - Yoko Shimomura
Interstellar (Main Theme) - Arranged by Patrik Pietschmann

Hello! smile I am a new member (heard of your site from PianoTV too) and would like to join the 40 pieces a year challenge. I don`t have equipment to record my playing, but I guess I can just write which pieces I`m playing. The first piece of the year would be Chopin Waltz in A-minor. I have been playing this for a while now, but intend to finish by the end of this week. Although of course it is not perfect and at some point I will probably return to it to polish it even more, but for now I will let it rest a little bit.
I love playing piano and am already excited to participate in this challenge. smile

Please can you add me to the list.. I have created a list of all forty of the pieces. A mixture of Chopin preludes, Bach minuets and the entirety of Tchaikovsky's 'Album For The Young'.
I've been learning for a year and I really want to start tacking the piano much more seriously. It would be an ideal future career for me. I am only 15 so I don't know whether to invest yet.

The progress I make throughout this year will tell me.

This is my first time posting on Pianoworld-- I heard about this idea from Allysia's most recent Piano TV video, and thought I'd give this a try!

Happy New Year to all of you and welcome to all newcomers.

Thank you Anita for such a nice start of the (musical) year!

TO ALL NEW MEMBERS
Welcome!!! In addition to the 40 pieces per year, you might want to look at MOYD, Where you commit to sit at the piano bench every day, and to report any lapses. The information about this commitment is in the link below. Most of us find it highly motivating as we hate reporting that we have missed without a good reason

Here is an easy one to start off the year, and a composer I've never heard of before until a few days ago. I've been considering subscribing to Pianist Magazine. On pocketmags.com you can take a look at the interactive tablet sample they have available. This selection is in there, along with 3 others. It's an easy piece, but a good exercise for articulation as it says. I think I might get a subscription to the digital magazine.

I'll add a recording soon, most likely YouTube as opposed to SoundCloud. I think my minutes are running out. The sample online also has Sonatina in G (Attwood), Song Without Words (op 30, no 3) and an advance piece by Schumann. I think I might do the Attwood piece also, Mendelssohn .. maybe - that looks really challenging. The Schumann piece .. not anytime soon smile

Hi, I’m new to the forum (came via piano TV) and I’d very much like to join. I’ve just resumed lessons after a four-year break and hope to use this challenge for some light relief from the harder (for me!) pieces I’ll be working on with my teacher. Looking forward to playing some easy Tchaikovsky, Schumann and Burgmuller, and perhaps the odd bit of film music as well. Excited to join you all!

Two thumbs up for Pianist Magazine. Their next issue will be the 100th. I get the hardcopy that comes with a CD of the performances, quite enjoyable.

Not sure if I can hit the number this year due to a change in focus and several events coming up in life, but I'll try.

Please count me in!

This is a great idea, I've been stuck in a rut for the last year, mostly due to life happening. Be nice to get some consistent practice, progression and better sight reading. I'm going by PianoTV's (youtube channel) suggestion, in that getting to about 80%-90% of piece completion and moving onto the next. Sign my up for the 2018 challenge please smile

This will be number 1 of 40: Sonatina in A Minor (George Anton Benda)
(warts and all)



I'm going to be adding this to my repertoire throughout the year, but this is a decent starting point for this piece, for me

I know from watching the video where the majority of the mistakes are: upper mordant timing / rhythm (triplet); generally sloppy rhythm throughout the piece; some bad fingering; more polish on dynamics; completely missed the tied 'D' note between bars 9 to 10.

But I'm generally happy to get one in the bag, more progress so far than 6 months of last year lol.
I'm also going to be filling them all for my youtube channel, so I have a retrospective at the end of the year, to see how far I've come.

Take care, comb your hair.

ZDM

I’m planning on using Christopher Norton’s Connections series starting with Book 1. There are some fun tunes in there. And even those in book 1 can be challenging for me. You can get all the mp3 files online at the Royal Conservatory site. There are 4 tracks with accompaniment and practice/performance speeds.


Coming back after a long while.

Please sign me up, first time for me. I just started playing piano in April 2017, building on what remains from couple of years of lessons more than half a century ago, the Alfred Teach Yourself Adult Book 1, weekly lessons, and a growing library of “aspirational” sheet music.

This week and next, I will be polishing Martha Mier’s “Just Struttin’ Along” and the arrangement of Harold Arlen’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from the Alfred book, to play at my teacher’s January recital (my first recital since about 1964!). I am almost certain to be older than the parents of her other students; I’m hoping at least to set a good example of persistence and enjoyment!

Might be time to figure out how to record and upload. My first new piece of the year is by Arvo Pärt: “Für Alina.”
