Maybe this is not the right place to ask but I would love to have a wiki dedicated to Bach's inventions where anyone could share their insights and ask questions regarding all aspects of practicing and performing these wonderful pieces.

The reason for proposing a wiki for this particular set of works is that the inventions are considered a cornerstone of piano pedagogy by virtually every piano teacher and that most piano students do at some point during their career engage in studying one or more of them.

The advantage of having a wiki instead of having to start a new thread for each and every question related to the inventions is that everything would be in one place and organized per invention so that anyone could easily contribute and ask questions on an ongoing basis.

For each invention there could be sections like:

- general discussion
- public domain sheet music and manuscripts
- analysis (form, harmony, counterpoint)
- pedagogical goals
- technical aspects (fingering)
- stylistic aspects (tempo, phrasing, articulation)
- strategies for memorizing and practicing
- recommended recordings by artists
- audio and video recordings by PW members or from other channels

I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject and whether anyone has ideas on how to actually implement such a wiki here on Piano World.

I love this idea and it doesn't have to be limited to Bach inventions. It would be great to lookup any piece I'm working on and leverage the wisdom of all the forum members to help me learn. Another implementation as an alternative or in addition to would be to enter some of the data into a searchable database. I think it would be great to search for a piece of a particular grade, composer, technical aspect, etc...

As a side note, I would also be very interested to having a wiki or dedicated forum devoted to learning music theory.

A friend started something similar recently as a companion site to our YouTube channel:

http://uipianoped.wikia.com/wiki/UIPianoped_Wiki

We're not sure yet exactly how or how much it will be used, but it's certainly an interesting platform for this kind of thing!

I actually own the domain name "wikitemperedclavier.com" -- I migrated my idea over to notablescores.com now. But if you guys want to use the other domain name let me know.

Or.... if you want to wait until www.notablescores.com is finished and put all the inventions on there, that would be doubly awesome! smile

I discovered that there already exists a wiki on Piano World for recitals which looks exactly the same as in Wikipedia and would be the perfect format for what I am proposing.

http://recitals.pianoworld.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

How about adding a similar section for piano pedagogy where we can collaboratively develop a wiki for piano pieces?

I'm sure this could become an invaluable asset and bring many new visitors to the site.
