Hi All, I'm an adult beginner (about a year or so of playing) who is in the delicate position of taking lessons from his own father (a church organist). In some ways, it's great: free lessons, several times a week. Sometimes, however, I feel that, perhaps owing more to parental pride than pedagogical soundness, my teacher thinks I'm capable of more than I really am. For instance, we've been working on the F major and g minor preludes from the eight little P&F by Bach or Krebs or whoever. I've been working on those two preludes for weeks, and although I'm definitely improving, it seems as if it will be weeks more before I can play those 4 pages of music without mistakes. I can learn a Burgmuller Op. 100 piece in about a week, and I don't seem to have much trouble with the 1st and 4th inventions, but these preludes (and certainly the g minor fugue, which is next on the list) seem much harder than they look. I don't want to hurt the old man's feelings by consulting another teacher, but there it is. Any advice? Regards, Jim A.
