It is VERY slow going, we're training our minds rather than our fingers. I've discovered that although I'm still going at snail pace with SSRS, my brain is actually becoming sharper with everything non-piano related ! So it must be doing some good

That sounds good (especially the contemporary style-she will love that) but then what would you use for finger exercises? Perhaps pieces by Czerny?

Thanks for the suggestions! bennevis, while I agree that op. 118 nos. 1 and 2 form a great pair, I would prefer to avoid something so commonly played. I love op. 118 no. 3 though, and somehow I hadn't registered that the middle section could serve a

#8 kind sounds like Violin Partita #1 (BWV 1002) Bourree, but it isn't... Edited to add: ha, we cross posted. At least I wasn't wrong in thinking it was Bourree-like and b-minor.

Gisele, if you're going to use the series for review and polish at her current level before moving on, let me tell you what I generally do with the series. First, about half the pieces, perhaps 2/3rds, were written originally as studies of one type

Morodiene I think that's great advice! I'm reminded of that old saying, If the only tool you have is a hammer, then every problem starts to look like a nail. I think it's well worth remembering that what you need to solve a problem in one pie
