There is no law in the UK that states how often a piano teacher should give lessons, I am sure you could find one who would be willing to do Once a fortnight or even once a month, most can be flexible, especially if they know you will work hard at what they have set.

Its worth a thought?



Sorry, am I loosing my mind? Or did Rostosky just say something thoughtful. Are you feeling okay Rostosky?

I'm really considering it actually, lessons that is. I've been looking at teachers in sheffield today, not that It will be yet, but maybe in the near future.

I sort of tried clayts approach today, not literally 10 x per measure, but a couple, and have got to measure 11, the whole peice is only 61 measures, so I might actually continue for this one. Maybe I'll get it finished in time for the next recital?

PPP, thanks for your deep and thoughtfull concern, I am not actually feeling OK today, in fact I am a little depressed.

It all started with Mrs. Rossy getting all romantic.
Let me elucidate.

Mrs Rossy was looking in her wardrobe, and found her wedding dress from 15 years ago. (I just want to point out that this particular dress was a total waste of money, she only wore it once.)

She said today: "It would be so romantic if I was buried in this"

I said ; " you better make sure then, that you die of some sort of wasting disease, cos thats the only way you will ever fit back into it" I went on to say, "If you die of natural causes, I will have to just throw it into the coffin on top of you, does that count as romantic?"

Apparently , it doesn't, and she threatened to cook dinner again.

Not the bestest of days.

I hope I can manage without the Clayt method, but its the results that count.


I didn't see this post, till now, do you fancy sending me a copy, I will give it a go, still gonna do the lady gaga fugue though.

Rossy, you could start feeding Mrs Rossy healthier stuff, as a romantic gesture! (thnx for your advice by the way, it looks like I'm honoured)

I tried to feed mrs.Rossy more healthier food, really I did, I said "mrs. R, I am only going to make you one bacon and egg and mushroom and tomatoe sandwich for breakfast from now on, instead of the three you normally have"

She went ballistic, Vicky pollard would have run.
Kicks, and screams and more tantrums than Jordan without a credit card.

I had to compromise and agree to cook her mid morning roast dinner earlier on in the day.

And I found her hiding venison behind the cushions on the sofa again.

Wayne, if you try Bachs menuet in G minor, you could learn Bachs menuet in G major after that. It's almost the same, so it won't cost much effort to learn. Then you can play it like a real menuet: majort part, minor part, major part. After that, you can edit a video of lady gaga quickstepping to it and put it on youtube. It would be fun, I think.

Cheers Paperclip, cool advice smile

Rossy, it sounds like you may have to opt for dress alterations, I would advice you, maybe, to have a full legnth zip fitted, it will make getting it on a little easier, especially if Mrs Rossy is a bit stiff! or maybe two full legnth zips, one on either side smile

Wayne, sorry I cant send you a copy of the Minuet, since I dont have a scanner. But it is available on the net for free download, and there are several performances of it on Youtube.
I think most, or all of Bachs music can be downloaded for free.

Wayne, to get the g minor, write "minuet in g minor" in google, open "Minuet in G minor.Free Sheet music, piano", and you have it ready for download in PDF.

Yes, they are BWV 114 (major part) and BWV Anh 115 (minor part). Although your first link, I couldn't open, but the name looks like it. And second one is the minor part.

Wayne, I managed to overlook the second link. Yes that g minor Minuet must be right, it seems to be identical with my sheet music.
I just decided to wait with the Handel, and have started with the g min Minuet. Very nice piece, and it seems I can handle it.
Edit: Seems I am the slowest person around here. Well, the question should be thoroughly answered now.

Wayne, the minuet in G minor is on the original site you found in your first post but take a look at what me and pianomaly had to say in Page 1 of this (i.e. your) thread.

Did take a look back, but I'm just gonna stick to the one's on the site I posted originally, at first I couldn't see the g minor one (because when I clicked on the 115, i was looking at the key signiture and thinking, oh thats not in g minor, but as you say, they flat all the e's where necessary)

So i know what I'm doing now, thank you to everyone smile
