I am beginner with 5 months of practising two hours daily. I found this piece one of the easyest from Bach, though i have read that beginner is ready to start practising Bach after 2-3 years. Is it to early to start with this nice piece

Depends on your progress and how you feel the piece is. I did actually start off with Toccata and Fugue when I was in the beginning of my serious start.
It was hard, but I still learned the Toccata and the start of the Fugue part ( which is the best part ).

Trust me, you can start practicing Minuet in G major, it's a farly easy piece Smile

It reminds me of Greensleeves in a way too, make me calm.

I think you can only answer that question yourself, cause your own progress isnt written in any books. If I had listened to advices to leav hard pieces alone, then I wouldn't be where im at now. And as you say, 5months and 2 hours a day, thats avragly more than me so that makes you a devoted student with personal motivation and dedication that will make it alot easier to learn harder pieces Smile

Dont start the hardest pieces, but try like Victor say Minuet in G major. Thats pretty easy... actually very easy. Smile If that is something you can overcome with ease you can try an even harder Bach, then continue until you find a piece that is to hard.......... and then do that as well if its just a tad to hard Wink hehe

Its all about challenging yourself just enough to urge the development, and avoid miss learning and bad habits Smile And tad to hard pieces is great for development Smile

And thats coming from a relative new "pianist" that started this year, but at least something for you to think about and decide after you take all advice into consideration Smile

J.S. Bach minuet in G major Empty other questions

Post by alessio on Mon Jun 22, 2009 11:45 pm

Hi, I have other questions about this piece so I post in this thread.
Here is the score on which I'm learning :
mediafire.com ?sharekey=d817aba798d5664975a4fc82078ae6c8e04e75f6e8ebb871

The questions are:
1) what is the "correct" fingering in measure 3 and 5 to do the mordents ?
2) why in measure 8 there's a small note that shouldn't be there since there's already a dotted half note ? How should I play that one ?

Thanks rabbit
