classical piano pieces for a beginner?
on: June 01, 2022, 11:47:46 AM

I'm not sure what grade I would be classed as because I've never had lessons but I am making my way through Carol Barratt book one and have played a couple of Czerny etudes, albeit with simplified left hand parts, I can also improvise quite well and play by ear. But I was wondering what pieces from the classical world would be suitable for a relative beginner, and if the scores are available for free download. I used to be to play a simplified version of Chopin's Raindrop Prelude by ear, (its my favourite Chopin piece) but have never seen a sheet for it so I'm not sure how difficult it would be.
