Kapustin is breathtaking! Loved your playing very much. Also, wanted to thank you for reminder - I fell into nice youtube rabbit hole this afternoon listening to his jazz etudes.

I've been playing the piano since Jan '18.
More recently, I passed Grade 6 with distinction and plan to take Grade 7 in late 2021.

I am documenting my progress, recitals and experiences of learning how to play the piano as an adult on my YouTube channel.

Thank you for the flattery! Not going to lie, I definitely thought about whether I was out of bounds before I started posting here. However, I felt reassured when I started listening to the recitals and looked up the surveys of the forum. There are definitely people here of all levels. Also, as I mentioned before, I only recently returned to the instrument after a ~7 year hiatus. Like the OP says, I'm using this goal to try and become a better pianist, like everyone else here!

If anyone feels like it's too intimidating, I'm more than happy to bow out or post less frequently.

Oh he's such a wonderful composer! Make sure you listen to his recording of the etudes! It's awesome that we're able to listen to the composer perform his own works! I'd also recommend listening to his first piano sonata and the Rite of Spring variations.

I'm 10% of the way there!

1. Etude Op. 10 no. 4 - Chopin
2. Minute Waltz Op. 64 no. 1 - Chopin
3. Concert Etude Op. 40 no. 1 - Kapustin
4. Prelude Book 1 no. 5 'Les collines d'Anacapri' - Debussy

Don't worry about it. There's a huge range of levels in this forum and that imo is a good thing.

Lovely! Very good job on new challenging piece. Note about mazurkas: I'm a not a fan either, but it helps to picture the dance. The rhythm and repetitiveness is easily explained once you know how the dancers are supposed to move and change positions. What may look like monotony on the score - is being complimented by changing geometry of the dance. Here is little bit about the dance and tradition of it (and Chopin contribution of course too):

I was just poking fun at the forum title, sometimes I think you're a beginner until you've played the Hammerklavier in the Festival Hall.

I am back again! Just managed to do 15 pieces for the challenge in 2019. Hopefully I can achieve 40 this year. Recently, I have come across a new (to me) exam board Rockshool and find that the songs are rather interesting. There are 6 songs per grade, in all kind of styles, which some are accompaniment, and some are played with backing tracks. I am going to try to get all of them recorded as a goal for 2020.

Here are the first set, Debut and Grade 1:

[Playlist on Soundcloud]

1. Emeli Sande - Next To Me
2. John Lennon - Imagine
3. Alan Menken - Beauty and The Beast
4. Bill Withers - Lean On Me
5. Justin Biebier - Love Yourself
6. Yann Tiersen - La Valse d'Amelie
7. Ariana Grande - Tattooed Heart
8. Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
9. Elton John - Can You Feel The Love Tonight
10. Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams
11. The Beatles - Let It Be
12. Sam Smith - I'm Not The Only One
