I started learning all of Bach's Well Tempered Clavier some time ago and figured I'd share my progress update. I am aware it's a long project but I am moving along steadily and most importantly, having fun!
I am also making videos of me learning and talking about these pieces as I go and you can check out the full series here:
A little bit of a rant in today's episode over an message I received about the site. Most of people don't realize what goes into building and maintaining an application like this one and that's ok but I'd like my voice to be heard and the reasons behind our pricing model which is more than fair in my opinion. How much do you charge for your work? This site provides immense value to me first of all and I know some of you use it on daily basis and draw inspiration for your teaching and performances.
Also, happy new year and tune in for more amazing content coming your way this year!

We get a bit psychological in this episode. What it takes to force your unconsciousness to take the practice material and put it into performance? We are also talking about Alan's doctoral studies with Kemal and the way they are working together.
I have been thinking about this concept lately. If you understand the score/music and have a clear idea on how you want to play a piece, shouldn't the technique kind of follow/fall into place by itself?
Alan and Jovan are talking Alan's summer institutes as well as upcoming ones. We talk about Open Source Teaching Framework, known as Kiddie Craft, Horowitz's piano in Ottawa, difficulties we face when teaching the piano..
I joined Alan in Belgrade where we talked about what he has been up to and the following Institutes. Alan also answered a question posted on The Craft of Piano Forum on focal dystonia. Lastly, we hear a question asked by Geoffrey Thomas on practicing.
