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 blush, 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 smile. 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 smile? Sometime after she introduces the pedal? Or give it a good year laugh?
BTW, there's a great video of a 12 y/o girl on YouTube playing no. 11 pretty nicely smile

No one can prevent you from "playing around" with the Scriabin Preludes you mention, but from a purely technical, musical, and pedagogical point of view you are a long way from tackling these pieces. You have much foundation work to establish before beginning to think about working on repertoire like this.

In the blush of first musical experiences, one is often tempted to stretch oneself much beyond one's capabilities, but that road can lead to both frustration and even some injury if overdone.

With the Czerny study you don't say how long it has taken you to learn it, whether you play it well, or whether you are still struggling with it. Trying to give you a timeline for when you might be ready for the Scriabin (several years is a modest guess) is something that only your teacher can tell you because we all work on different learning curves.

Try to be patient and work on material that will help develop your musical experience and your technique so that when the time comes to approach the Scriabin you will be able to do his works justice and get enjoyment from studying them.

Regards,

If you like Scriabin, then listen to all the Preludes Op.11 on YouTube and you will find some that are much easier than the two you mentioned that you may well like as much.
