Hello Piano Forum...

Just for the purpose of getting some dialogue... Not a competition! I was wondering if you are studying with Beyer 101, how long has taken you to master a lesson?.

My teacher is guiding me thru the Beyer Op101, combined with some Etudes and small pieces.
I am currently working on Beyer Lessons 80 and 81, plus Burgmueller Arabesque.

Normally the cadence for the weekly hourly class is like this (class is on line):
Study two Beyer lessons at the same time (one new and other one from a couple of weeks ago). This bring a challenge of gaining fluency in an older excursive and reading a new one.
At the same time, we work on a small piece.
I find this quite satisfactory as I have variety in the work to do on my own.

I was wondering how long it takes to complete one lesson on Bayer?
For me it is taking me about three to four weeks to get it to a decent level that I can move on to a new one.

The Burgeueller, it taking a bit longer, specially as my teacher normally puts higher standard on real pieces (vs. exercises). The arabesque is about 6 weeks into the study, and probably requires a couple of weeks more to fine tune some areas.
Average practice time is may be 1 hour per day.

What are you working on?

Best Regards

Beyer 101 is a little old-fashioned but I guess it's fine as an introductory method. Most people stay in method books for 6 months to a year before moving to graded repertoire.

You don't necessarily have to go through the whole book. If you did 80 lessons and are doing Burgmuller Arabesque I think it's time to move to repertoire.

I use the pieces in Beyer 101 to practice sight reading. I think they're great for that purpose. Have done 1 through 78 so far and I enjoy playing them. I do one first pass as pure sight reading (not worrying about mistakes), and then go back and repeat the piece a few times until I can get it through with almost no mistakes. I set a 15-20 minute timer and stop when time is up.
