3 favourite pieces -
Debussy - Tarantella Styrienne
Rachmaninoff - Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini
Ravel - Concerto in G Major
Some of Satie's pieces are really haunting but quite simple.
I've just had my fourth piano lesson and my teacher says she reckons I'll be able to do grade 2 in the summer. I'm really happy but does that seem a little too optimistic or is that just me? Seems so quick!
Bought the Rolan HP305 digital piano for £1300 yesterday. So nice. Reduced from over £2000 from its RRP. Beautiful piano for the price. Sure it's no real piano, but it comes fairly close!
Good choice and good price. Wouldn't do for me though as I have to take mine out on gigs.
Hi guys, I've been practising piano on my own for about a year now and I was wandering if someone could link me up to some common Grade 1 pieces so I can see where I'm at.
I've been having lessons for nearly 6 years now, although I got my first keyboard about 9 years ago so I taught myself (aka mucked about, I was about 7 then!) for a few years before that. I'll be taking grade 8 in December this year (A1 or A3, B1 and C4).
My three favourite pieces are:
1. Etude Op.10 No.3 in E major -Adieu (Chopin)
2. Moonlight Sonata, 3rd Movement (Beethoven)
3. Sonata in D Minor Kp.9 (Scarlatti)
Yes, the first two are cliché, but there's a reason they're so famous! I love listening to (or playing) pretty much anything, particularly baroque and classical.
