Hey, I`ve been playing piano for about a year and a half, I`ve played stuff like moonlight sonata mvt 1, fur elise, a bunch of sonatinas by clementi, sonatina in c 545 1st movement..etc I learned the first page of revolutionary etude, still working on it up to speed but i was wondering if it`s too eariler to start that piece? anybody have advice or anything.

It is indeed much to early for you to start with a difficult piece like the revolutionary etude. It could be a good finger exercise, but i don`t think you`ll be able to play it the way chopin would like you to, unless you`re some kind of musical genius..

I don`t know about your skill, but the pieces you say you have played are nowhere near the [I have a shallow vocabulary] of the etude "revolutionary". But if you think you can do it, go for it. Usually, people don`t jump from Für Elise and the like to pieces like this.

You won`t be able to do it. Anyone can sight read the first page and think they`re having some success, but believe me, you won`t be able to do it. There`s more to a piece of this difficulty than learning the notes. It`s an etude after all. You need to have very strong technique in the left hand especially, which I am confident that you do not possess after a year and a half of experience. Once you do learn the notes, then there`s the whole ordeal of bringing it up to speed and making it musical, which can take years of hard work. My advice, don`t even think about trying it yet. There are plenty of fine pieces in between that you can do. And don`t put yourself down because of these; nobody starts at the top. Everybody has to work to get there. Good luck, though.

I`m in the same position as you, buddy. I`m not a virtuoso either, (I can`t play anything really hard) and I`m working on the Revolutionary Etude. Just work on it slowly and carefully, it might take you a year (I started Rondo Alla Turca {3:30 minute version, not the super short one} too early and it took me about a year) but it doesnt matter. Have fun, but concentrate on pieces on your real level

Well even tho I`ve been playing for a year and a half I think my real level is around grade 5-7 RCM I dont find those pieces hard and my sight reading is about level 5 which im working hard to get it better.

You should try Harp study or Fantasie Impromptu by chopin... for a solo
