Hey guys, Just wanna share my progress with Bach... I started learning this piece this february 2021, although I can play it fairly decent at around the 2nd and 3rd month, recording it is another story... I feel weird/anxious when recording myself while playing the piano. IDK maybe I just suck all in all....

But these past few weeks, I grinded the prelude then recorded it, then grinded the fugue for 2 weeks then recorded it... Now i think i got a fairly decent-ish(?) Recording of both... Now I'm gonna drop the pieces to learn something new, I'm planning to record my rubbish Opus 10 no. 12 by chopin but meh, probably not, that piece is a monster to play well, and playing it slow and recording it wouldn't sit well with me.

P.S: I have no teacher as of the time of this writing.

Drop a comment or share your thoughts with me maybe? Thanks guys!



Yup.. still a beginner. Up til now..

When will a teacher accept me? :/

Hello,  I only listened to the prelude for the first minute.  It sounds like you are doing well, except you need to sustain the top note of the right hand throughout the entire first section of the prelude.  Keep the right hand pinky pressed!   :)

Just listened to the fugue without score. Generally sounds very good.  Nice tempo, light touch and steady beat.  Keep up good work.
