Bach invention 14

This past month, I have been working on a piece called Invention 14 by Bach. I worked very hard to learn all the right notes, and playing parts loud and quiet. Many of Bach's pieces have two voices/melodies, the right hand has one melody, and the left hand has a different melody. When I play, I am supposed to show both melodies.  Bach wrote these Inventions, as exercises for his students to play. He wrote one invention for all of the scales. These pieces weren't meant to be performed, however they are beautiful, so we decided to record them anyway. 

I hope you enjoy listening!


  1. Dear Sarah,

    Brava! I used to play a Bach Invention. I believe it was Number 1. It was very difficult to learn, but once I got it, it was fun to play. Your fingers just seem to weave around one another!

    How are things going with the violin?

    Your proud former teacher,

    1. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

      Thank you so much for writing me a lovely comment. I really appreciate all the time you spend to write me a nice and long comment. Are you still able to play the piano?

      I have an orchestra audition next month, and I have to play an excerpt chosen by the conductor, 2 scales, and one minute of the piece I chose to play one the violin. I am trying out for first violin in my orchestra.

      Maybe next time I will record a violin piece.

      Your former student,

  2. Dear Sarah,
    Wonderful performance,
    it's a great pleasure to hear you play, your Grandpa Eugene loves Bach, it's his favorite composer. You feel the music and that's wonderful. I hope you will continue to play, I know it's hard work and many hours of practice, but it all worth it.
    Love you and proud of you,
    Grandma Tanya

    1. Dear Tanya,

      Thank you so much for spending your time to write me a lovely comment. I will definitely continue to play the piano, and am currently learning another piece by Bach.
