    Default Please help me with my studies...

    This is my first post and I'm not too familiar with this site so if this kind of topic does not belong here I apologize .

    I need help deciding a new piece to learn but I'm having a great deal of trouble finding a piece suitable for me. For me to enjoy learning a piece I have to actually enjoy it musically but most of the pieces I enjoy are just much too difficult for me.

    The last pieces I learned and can play quite well(technically at least) are

    Satie's Gymnopedie no 1
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jInjkXki0r8

    and

    Chopin's Nocturne #21 in C-minor (it's a shame this one is not so popular)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIqx0MOsNfo

    In a nutshell, please suggest to me a piece or pieces that are on par with those two on a technical level.

    My guess is that you play at around a Grade 8 RCM/Grade 7-ish ASBRM examination level. They both make you buy their repertoire listings, but I found a listing for a BC conservatory (which is not nearly as big). You could check out grade 8 and lower levels:

    Thank you for replying, that link you gave me was immensely helpful.

    Although I think your guess was misplaced as I could not possibly be a grade 7.
    I have only been playing for 3 months, I first got a piano this past Christmas.
