The Man Who Died on Stage at Carnegie Hall

“Barere is an Anton Rubinstein in one hand and a Liszt in the other” said the famous composer Alexander Glazunov. But if you mention Simon Barere (1896-1951) to most people today, their response is “Simon Who”? Read more >>

Just wondering if anyone knows of an ez version of Mozart's alla turca. I got a six year old who is love with anything classical and made a request to play this. (It makes me happy when little kids tell me they want to play Bach or Mozart, especially if they've only been playing a short while. All hope is not lost!) If not I guess I'll just have to do it myself, which isn't such a bad thing. Peace.

Slow down the tempo, make the LH do just a single bass note instead of whatever it has... I haven't seen the sheet music in a while.  Make him do lots of HS and RH work.  The left hand will be a very very simple grade 1 style LH accompliment.

Hmm I just started teaching not too long ago and am quite inexperienced at this.. I've got a student like that too. However she's too young (hands too small) to play octaves. Also, is there a way to simplify the semiquavers runny notes? Don't think she'll be able to play that as yet. I'm afraid she'd get bored of the piece if I ask her to do it slowly. So was wondering if I can simplify it for her for the time being, and when her technique improves she'll be more inspired to play the original version.
