Music which has tremendous artistic value but are relatively easy to learn and play sometimes is difficult to come by. This is understandable because when a player has very limited technical skills and experience, melodies, rhythms, harmonies and texture have to be simple enough to be accessible.
On the other hand a lot of easy music is simply not worth your time and effort because it has little artistic value and can sound boring.
That's exactly why Menuets, Polonaises, Marches and other pieces from the Notebook of Anna Magdalena Bach are so charming and never gets tiring to listen to and play.
To help people with modest skills learn to play these keyboard pieces (and develop manual technique) I created this video course which you can check out here. Because the videos are shot from the position where you can see my fingers very clearly, it's like sitting on the bench with me or looking over my shoulder.
