Hello,

Due to someone's suggestion, I open this post in order to get help and guidance on playing  "Claire de Lune" of Debussy.

I am an amateur pianist, and in one year or less I will play this piece in a recital.  I already got the compas (9/8) in a speed of 40 bpm.

Any suggestions and advices are welcome.

I am checking the tutorial.  One of the videos which called most of my attention is how to play softly.  I usually have problems with that because I feel that I cannot be "heard", so I play the piano applying force.  I couldn't find where I can load my progress, and the piece is incomplete so I am attaching the first and second pages of the piece here.

It is in a slow tempo and I have had problems with the last bars because I need to memorize and improve in coordination. I know there shouldn't be any excuses, but if I want to get the piece in one year, I will need to improve right now with what I know as well as going foward.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
