Hi.Nowadays I'nm trying to study on "The flight of the bumble bee".First of all this,I got a note of this(not writing finger number).After reading,I tried to play.After I have played a part of this composition,I noticed that I am not fast enough and I have some difficulties about playing.I think I am using wrong fingers to the notes.Is there anyone who can share a note of this composition which includes finger numbers?Or is there anyone who can write correct finger numbers on the note which I have shared on http://rapidshare.de/files/3537491/Flight_of_the_Bumble_Bee.zip.html .Thanks
This video is me playing at my graduation this spring. This was my first and only public performance so I was really, really nervous, and I made some obvious mistakes. Unfortunately, my friend didn't start recording when I started playing, so the first fourth of the piece is gone, and the end is also missing somehow. But the middlesection is there and I would very much like to hear some opinions from other pianists anyway. Perhaps I should mention that I had only been playing the piano for about 8 months at this recording, so if you think it stinks please have this in mind
I'm practicing The Flight of the Bumblebee by N. Rimsky-Korsakov / S. Rachmaninov
I have a problem
The part where the right hand plays the main melody but adds a note on top doesn't come out enough... I mean at first there are 5 a's then there are 4 d's then 4 a's but another octave higher.. I can't seem to make them come out enough and i think that's the point right?
As all know, Rimsky Korsakov's The Flight of The Bumble-Bee is an extremely fast piece. Its original speed is 200 beats/minute, but you can play 160 beats/minute as well. It's mainly played chromaticly. My problem is, I can't play this piece quickly even 160 beats/minute. I've tried playing from slowly to fast, but I also can't play it clearly. Anyone who can play this fast please give me some tips to play well. Thanks a lot!!
"All of my students are members of Pianostreet and many of my teacher colleagues have joined as well.
It is an excellent resource for students and teachers alike and there is very rarely any need to visit another website or music store in search of sheet music."
"As a frequent user of pianostreet.com I find it easy to navigate, great value for money and very professional. The pieces are all well-graded and the audio is really useful, especially for pieces not heard before. I have recommended the site to many of my friends who play the piano. Keep up the good work."
"Wonderful service! [...] I have no reservation in recommending it as a “must” to all pianists, both teachers
and students, amateur and professional." Read full review >>

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."
"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
