Hi James! I'm entering a piano competition and I'm trying to learn chopin ballade no. 1 opus 23 in g minor, off by heart but I've never learned such a long piece. I'm cutting it down to four minutes. Do you have any advice for learning pieces? :) thanks

Go slow. Page at a time. And when you're practising with the music start by not turning over the page and see how far you get. Gradually, if you're practising right, you'll get further and further. Takes time... Best of luck with it.
