The joy of learning is fostered by clear goals, a structured path, and a freedom to focus. Together these elements provide a feeling of achievement and in turn, the joy of learning. It can be difficult for the student to create individual study elements on their own and that is why I have developed this series of study guides.
By addressing a piece of repertoire in a wholistic approach you will develop a solid understanding of
the piece from the outset. Even if some concepts take a long time to master you will benefit from having started the piece on the right path from the beginning and feel confident about how you are investing your time.
Each study guide works on theory, analysis, musicianship, and technique along with practice suggestions and investigations into unique aspects for each piece. Studying in this structured manner will not only guide you but it will also help you develop an approach to learning repertoire in general.
This study guide focuses on the Prelude BWV 999 by J.S. Bach. We delve into key, form, harmony, voices, right and left hand technique as well as interpretation.
This prelude has a lot more to discover that what appears on the page at first glance!
This Study Guide also has an accompanying video course available for members inside CGC Academy.
