I had a great 70 minutes or so of practice this morning! I am now up to 25 measures, at tempo, of Golliwogg's Cakewalk. That is almost 20% of the piece re-learned in just a couple of days. :) I expect a bit of a slow-down when I hit the key change in the next section, but I should still finish this piece ahead of the 30 day goal. I am going to focus more on completing this piece before moving on to the next one this time because I am finding that I am neglecting Notturno and Wedding Day at Troldhaugen now that I have moved on. Both of the Grieg pieces still have a few rough measures.
I did iron out some problematic measures in Notturno this morning, so that should be ready for a completion video soon. There are still a few rough patches in Wedding Day at Troldhaugen that will take a few days to iron out. If you watched the video, you know where they are.
I now have enough pieces I am working on that I can go make good use of a real piano. Since I have one available to me just a couple of miles away, I will be starting practice there at least twice a week next week!
And one last word about the "new" pieces that I will learn. I have not yet selected what I will learn, but I have already thrown out three different possibilities to select from for Grieg. I am mulling over what pieces to select two from for Joplin and have pretty much decided what Debussy piece I will select (sorry, you don't get to vote on that one). I am happy to accept suggestions for two Joplin pieces to learn. Please check out the videos I posted on Facebook for the Grieg pieces I am considering and suggest one to me. I am leaning towards Berceuse. I will reveal the four new pieces when I complete Clair de Lune in approximately 90 days.
