Where is everyone? I passed Blue Rondo and now started a good old tune. I hope everyone is hanging in there moving forward with their piano. Cheers

Working on Blue Rondo and enjoying learning it. Doesn't seem like there are too many of us working on Book 3, but glad to see some activity on this thread.

I stopped checking this page since everyone disappeared on me. Great to see some people working on book 3 like me. Blue Rondo is cool. I finished Jass Ostinato! That one is really fun but I still have difficulty completing it without a mistake. I believe it will help in future when I try to tackle bogie woggie. I am trying to conquer The tap dancer. That one is crazy. Also started Rachmaninoff Op 3 no. 2 Prelude in C sharp minor since I am working on this key right now. Very cool sounds on that piece but more difficult than I was hoping for. cheers!!!!

Where is everyone? I hope your fingers are still tickling the keys🎶😎 I have now completed Soldiers joy and Toreador Song. The hornpipe song was challenging not to make a mistake like Jazz Ostinato was as it is fast playing with Sticcato in mainly left hand only. Now working on Rock a my Soul. Just keep playing. Love it. Love to hear any accomplishments for others.

Working through The Stranger. First one that has really needed a lot of time for me. I normally take an hour (spread over 15 minutes slots over a day or two) to learn the notes and road map. This one is taking 4 times longer before I can even start to consider the proper rhythm; and then the dynamics to come.

Currently working on the first three songs in the book: A Super-Special Sorta Song; Calypso Rhumba; and Fandango. Where is "The Stranger"?

Birdgolf: Fandango is a keeper. The Stranger is in Book 1. There are some really good songs come my up for you like sheradaz. I am working and on Variations of the Sea Chanty. Very neat song. The prelude before confounds me. I have to keep at it diligently to get it right. Keep those keys bouncing. Cheers!😎👏🎼🎹

Hey Book 3'ers...lets get this back on page 1. Does anyone think Masterwork Classics would be a good warmup and sight-reading book(s). I am about finished with Dozen-A-Day Vol 2. --Regards, Birdgolf

Hi Birdgolf,

I started the Masterwork Classics series while working through Aflred's 2. I recommend it, if you like classical.

Got Rondeau down. Now working on Trumpet Tune. My right hand got sore over weekend with doing the trills. I guess you cannot over due it for too long. The last songs like Toccara In D minor and Fur Elise and moonlight Sonata finally coming up but they look massive compared to everything we have accomplished so far. So stay tuned! I will let you know.

Where are you Bsharp and Birdgolf? Hope you are doing well. I have been working on Toccata in D minor and Fur Elise. I feel pretty good on Toccata with a small section that needs Constant attention and Fur Elise section with the one finger altering fingers with left hand. I am getting there and just keep going at it. How about you guys doing?

Hi Astro,

I haven't tried anything new from the Alfred's book lately. I'm focusing on my RCM exam for now. After that, not sure what I'll do next smile Perhaps I'll give Toccata in D minor a try.

Hello my friends,
I am still here and moving slowly through Book 3. I am currently working on SERENADE (p.26). I keep letting other music get in my way. Hopefully I can soon concentrate more on Bk 3. Keep up the good worth. I understand very few complete Bk 3. I guess it's like running a marathon. Cheers, Birdgolf

Glad to see Birdgolf and Bsharp are hanging in there. I have worked on Toccata d minor and have everything good except top of page 3 complicated fingering down pat. That section is going to take a long time to perfect. It's good but I make mistakes on that section most times still when playing thru the piece. I have Fur Elise down relative good now so that it sounds respectable when I stay focused on the runs. I started moonlight but the right hand stretches of the fingers is very challenging and not comfortable yet. Needs a lot of work to get it comfortable. How about you guys? What's happening?

Got Moonlighting down! Now working on Clare de Lune. Now that is an interesting piece to elevate my playing. What are you guys working on now? Keep me posted. Cheers!!!

Hi Astro,

Glad you got Moonlighting down. Just that first part, right? I think the 3rd movement is super fast. I have not yet attempted Moonlight, nor any other piece out of Alfred's 3 since my last post. I'm working on pieces assigned to me by my teacher for now, along with easier pieces I pick up to keep moving forward with the 40 piece challenge.

I am working on Clare de lune. It is the longest piece I have ever attempted. I do not think my piano teacher was excited that I wanted to do this piece as I think he thought it was to difficult but when I played thru first page I think he was surprised I could do it. So now I can play the first 4 pages all the way thru. I still have two more pages to learn and then I need to do a lot of polishing to get it to sound good. How is every one else doing? Keep on playing. 🎹🎶🎼

Hello, I've decided to switch over to Faber Piano Adventures Level 4 using the Lesson, Technique, Theory, Perf, and Sight Reading books. Looks like an integrated package and will probably keep me busy for 6 to 8 months. Keep up the good work. --Birdgolf
