CL81 : I think you should investigate your motivation and put the project into some kind of time frame, preferably an indefinite one. If you are planning on an intended project of learning all of the Chopin Nocturnes, can you answer the question:

This is the third of three style compositions presented here which are based on Homage to Bach. As a single hand study for children, surely it is a novelty! The emphasis is on pointed and accented staccato touch vs. subdued and longer held staccato

This is the first of three style compositions presented here which are based on Homage to Bach. It is allusive of a particular Gigue by Bach which perhaps is quite long and demanding for child use.
