Without music, life would be a mistake" - Albert Einstein


imslp.org → The International Music Score Library Project. The logo on the main page was taken from the beginning of the very first printed book of music, the Harmonice Musices Odhecaton.

Sibelius has its own library, which isn't good but definitely better than midi playback.

India Make music on your computer with SC and Python random indian poster Chennai, Tamil Nadu  No.50 

United States random american poster San Antonio, Texas  No.57 

a significant amount of the time I have been learning has been wasted attempting to play pieces that are far above beginner level
like pieces from the anna magdalena notebook and leopold mozart minuets

I got a few books that have really short simple exercise like pieces that help me build muscle memory of finding the keys on the piano

I got the John W. Schaum piano course A - the red book
I finished the book before it that was called "pre-A"

and Adult all in one course (the alfred book)

I should be progressing through these really fast but I am not properly allocating time to practice (ideally 4 hours a day)

United States random american poster San Antonio, Texas  No.58 

okay I guess those pieces I mentioned are beginner level but at the time I was attempting I barely knew the bass clef and was no where near ready
I have the first half of this piece memorized and can play it in tempo
but I am unable to read along while playing because my brain cant comprehend that many notes on both clefs at the same time yet

Brazil Santo Ângelo, Rio Grande do Sul  No.59 


You need to keep in mind that your sight-reading will never be on par with your playing from memory, Feasties. It doesn't mean you should neglect it, of course, but rather keep the material you use for each separate. As for reading multiple notes at once, try to think of the score as a continuous system with 10 lines rather than two separate staffs. It's the same as hand independence: you are trying to convince your brain that you are doing one complex thing rather than two separate things, only here you have to do it ahead of time.

As for trying to play pieces out of your league… you won't be motivated if all you play are child pieces and sterile mechanical studies.

United States random american poster San Antonio, Texas  No.62 

okay thanks
I usually have been spending my entire practice time lately doing sight reading
im going to work on finishing the mozart menuet as well

I was thinking of creating a thread specified on lithurgic music but i think the discussion on that subject could apply to this thread as well.

Currently i've been around the Codex Calixtinus from Santiago de Compostela. Some scholars argue that it was some of the first pieces in europe to use poliphony but others disregard that theory

I guess we could also discuss music history in this thread but i gotta say that even tough i research for a lot of music in this genre i still have few knowledge on the formal constructions of the said musical pieces.

Anyways, i'll post a lithurgic hymn dedicated to the pilgrims of Santiago

This would be the first one if 3rds and 4ths are enough to go by

>i still have few knowledge on the formal constructions of the said musical pieces

Cantus firmus? Try Fux's Gradus ad Parnassum, it will give you a better grasp of polyphony

is it to much to ask for that you get some former great concert pianist who decides to take you on simply because he sees the enormous talent within you

Do you have the reach to play the nastiest chords without much pain?


Yes, it is


How old are we talking? It's difficult for me to say, so far the only electric organ that sounds remotely like the real thing (as in emulating changes of windchest pressure caused by the air pressure dropping slightly when many notes are sounding simultaneously to some degree) are those behemoths Johannus makes. I don't think there is much difference between sample based organs (hammond, gambitt, yamaha, etc) but you won't have the motivation to practice if you get yourself a literal doorbell with keys. Try them on first and if you can stomach the sound, buy it.

im working on some kind of musical software now

one is a tracker (pic rel)
second is a very limited tracker without samples but only square wave generators (fake bit, no screenshot)
and the third is a formula tracker (where all sounds defined by simple formulas like `cos(sin(t))`)
