Congrats. Be sure to have your teacher monitor your scales to make certain you're not introducing some bad habits which was come back to haunt you in future years.

I haven't read through the entire thread, but I agree with John that the repertoire you're doing might be a tad too difficult for right now. I also think you're spread too thin, working on too many pieces at once. I'd narrow it down to 3 (or 4 if you're doing easier or shorter pieces).

Yeah I think you are right on number of pieces. I have actually gone back to easier stuff and am currently working on Chopin Waltzes (3 off)and Mazurkas (2 off). I am still however trying to "NAIL" - Grieg - Wedding Day at .... and Chopin Etude 25/2.
