I finally managed to get through the first part of Rondo Alla Turca without stopping! What a rush!

Now all I have to worry about is the remaining three-fourths of the piece. Thank God Mozart likes to repeat himself!

This is very exciting for me, as I really can't play anything else yet.

I don't know what to call it but i guess the 'C' section or the section after the jumping octaves will give you some trouble (clarity!!).

Like I need more trouble than I'm already having.

It took me almost a month just to get this far.

cOnGrAtZ!

I was so obsessed with that piece when I was younger, but never learned it because I wasn't good enough. I'm good enough now, but I'm too lazy to start it. :p

Make sure you can play the tune with your thumb, and with you 5th finger, then start with a dotted rhythm, puting a relaxed drop of the wrist into the thumb note, and alowing the wrist to lift on the 5th finger. Practise it slowly like this until it is really easy, then keep doing this while you add the bass. Next do the same, slowly, with the rhythm as written, but keep the relaxed movement of the wrist. Also practise the unbroken octaves very carefully with the left hand, as they will help you to co-ordinate this.

Stay slow until you feel poised, and then increase your speed gradually. Stay relaxed, and don't rush.

try to avoid starting your practice with the bit you already know, as that will encourage rushing through the tricky bits. Work on the tricky bits first, and then play the whole thing at the speed of the hardest part today.

be patient. you're doing great.
