Ok, I have been wanting to learn to play the piano for a very long time, so I bought a 76 key Yamaha keyboard in 2008 and I thought that I could learn on my own
, I wasn't really interested in classical music, so I was just messing around. Of course, that didn't work out. I started working last November and in the middle of December I've started taking lessons with a teacher, two times a week (except for February, - once a week), they're 45 min lessons. I bought an actual upright piano in January and now I've even started working 3/4 times instead of full time mostly to have more time to practice.
For a couple of last years I've been very interested in classical music. Anyway, long story short, I really like some Scriabin pieces. And I was very interested in Op. 11, Nos. 11 and 12. (The full Op. 11 score can be found on IMSLP
). I'm not saying that I'm going to learn them right away. But I'm really interested how far away am I
. I have them printed right now and I sometimes play the main melody (because it's fun playing familiar melodies)
To give you an idea of where I am, here's the last Czerny etude
that was assigned to me. But we haven't even started using the pedals and it's probably impossible to play those pieces without pedal...
Anyways, no. 12 seems easier than 11, right? Of course, both of them are emotionally and musically difficult and that's where I struggle the most.
Basically I'm interested when can I show my teacher the score of no. 12, so that she wouldn't think I'm crazy
? Sometime after she introduces the pedal? Or give it a good year
BTW, there's a great video of a 12 y/o girl on YouTube playing no. 11 pretty nicely
