Item Number: S0.6651

Prelude in C Major from "The Welltempered Clavier, Book I." This edition has been laid out in 3 pages to give a bit more horizontal space. Quarter notes are used instead of the original 16th's, and the left hand has been simplified to 2 notes with no rests, making the pattern between the hands very easy to see. For a young student or adult beginner, this is the best way to introduce this prelude. .

    My Elementary piano student is ready for a challenge. His mom would like him to learn Bach’s Prelude in C for a video for his great-grandfather’s birthday. This seemed impossible until I found this arrangement which has made the piece accessible for a motivated beginner. Adaptations that...

    help: The arrangement is clearly laid out. The 16th notes have been changed to quarter notes (which my student loves to play fast, anyway). It’s in C, with accidentals clearly indicated. Fingering is very helpful and usually works for a young student with small hands. It IS 3 pages long, so could be intimidating, but lots of repeated patterns helps. Teacher guidance will be helpful for Ledger line notes and a shift to RH bass clef near the end, depending on the student’s method level when starting the piece.
