I think 40 is too many. I will for 20.

Piano is hard work from beginning to forever. Accept this as truth or risk a quick exit with tail between legs.

I am in for this year as well. I did it for the first time last year, and, although I was very skeptical for learning 40 pieces I year, I did it. I have submitted 50 pieces total. So it is very doable.

Some pieces were easier and it would take me a week, while they were a few that would take more over a month. I usually learn about four pieces in parallel. Most pieces were 1-2 page long, so it is definitely not a lot, but sufficient for my level (late beginner-early intermediate). I have to say it is this challenge that allowed me to shift to the early intermediate phase.

I'd like to join for this year, even though I only got about 20 pieces listed for last year.

One great outcome from discussing the challenge last year with my teacher is that we added two new "tracks" to my lessons: learning easier pieces (from Agay's "Easy Classics to Moderns") and playing simple pieces by ear. One of my 2019 goals is to learn new pieces more efficiently. I did get more efficient learning and my ear improved too.

Looking forward to another year...

Thanks, scorpio, for your work on this thread.

I would like to join for this year.

My motivations for doing so are actually opposite to the thinking behind why the challenge was originally created. My natural inclination is to race through piece after piece, and move on as soon as the notes and rhythm are correct. I am going to challenge myself to focus more deeply on 40 pieces, and not consider them complete until I have really thought about expression and musicality. I hope to even record at least some of them, which is something I have never done before.

Looking forward to following along with everyone's progress.

I started seriously practicing again in July 2018 and managed 20 Prep and Lev. 1 pieces before the end of the year, but must admit to being daunted by the "40" of this challenge. Here goes, I'm in.

Abby.c - that was a really cool version of Jingle Bells! Sort of ragtime-like. I enjoyed that. Thanks for sharing.
