    You guys all play advanced pieces. I took up playing classical music recently again after many years.
    I play:

    Clementi op 36 (nrs 1, 2, 3 finished)
    Kuhlau sonatines opus 55 (nr, 1 almost finished)
    Burgmuller opus 100 (nr 1 and 2 finished)

    As you see I try to get some variation.

    I also plan to play some more Kuhlau sonatinas, some Diabelli sonatinas, the Beethoven sonatinas and the Mozart sonata KV545.

    Now, with the Internet, most of the music I play is available for free.
    After I have printed a set of pieces I goto a 'copyshop' and have them bound into a nice booklet.

    Although I have played for many years, starting over seemed the best option. I believe, however, that I can go faster through the sonatinas than 30 years ago.

    Regards,
    Rene Hasekamp

    Do you have any means to record your playing? I think it would be nice to share you intrepretations of the pieces which you play. Welcome.

    It will be nice to have more of this type of music. If you can turn in good performances I am sure they will be enjoyed by many people. The Kuhlau Sonatines are every bit as good as Clementi's, remember how Beethoven was very positive about Kuhlau. Diabelli and Burgmuller will raise fond memories for many people who ever suffered piano lessons.

    We're not all so advanced here, though. Skills range from basic to excellent, which is how it should be in a place like this. So welcome to the gang.

    I think you can learn much from the beethoven sonatines, Don't forget to play the scales and czerny. Your level will be tuned up if you do that!

    Thanks

    Thanks to those who replied (and to those who are about to reply).

    I have no good means at the moment to record my playing at the moment, but I still do not play with enough confidence. A bit patience there!
    Yes I also study Czerny. I forgot to mention that. It seemed obvious.
    Anyway. I'll take a look often here.

    Don't worry about that; we all start at the beginning and finish at the end.

    Yeah, God forbid we'd ever be finished, or at the end !
    A musician is never finished.

    Hehe Jennifer... I am also much closer to the beginning! Although - I enjoy practicing, and I suppose what keeps me going is looking at how far I've come rather than how far I have yet to go :wink: My teacher keeps telling me it is much much better to play a very basic piece well rather than a sloppy more advanced piece (although I very much fear that my well practiced rendition of twinkle twinkle little star will not impress too many people!) :D

    Yes, that is the ticket ! Instead of being frustrated by what you cannot do, rejoice in what you can do. Instead of looking for the bad things, look for the good things and the improvement in your playing.

    not too advanced...

    I have plenty of intermediate peices on my website you might be interested in. (they're are some advanced ones on there as well) Some of them are geared towards some of my students so they're not so difficult to play.
