Or is there one? I would like to learn the Bach Little Preludes. http://www.henleusa.com/us/detail/index.html?Title=Little+Preludes+and+Fughettas_106#content

Obviously I won't be studying all 18 at once. What order would you suggest? I have started working on BWV 927 (F major) and BWV 999 (C minor). Thanks.

Since Henle gives relative levels of difficulty of each Little Prelude, I would suggest you start with some of the easier ones, and then eventually add others of increasing difficulty until all the ones you want to learn have been learned.

If even the more difficult ones are easy for you, then I don't think that I would recommend any particular order of learning them.

Unless you absolutely love all the Preludes, are crazy about Bach, and have tons of time I don't recommend learning all or even most of them. I think most students play a few and them move on to the Inventions. Then they move on to the WTC or dance suites.
