Thank you for this return and these tips
I found a multitude of books on Bach fugues
Will you help me by giving references of books on Bach fugues that with which I could start working
In advance thank you

If this is your first foray into the counterpoint of Bach, I suggest starting with the Bach 2-part Inventions. These are brilliant, shorter compositions which offer the same kind of writing you find in fugues with less complexity and only 2 voices interweaving (instead of 3 or more as in fugues).

I am very happy member for a few days
However I still have less than 10 months of piano practice
And my problem is that I would play the songs (Christmas Carols (all the collections, 1-3) arrangements for piano, voice or other instruments easy level
But I have trouble on the position of the 4 fingers simultaneously (two fingers left sides and right sides two fingers) so I was wondering if you could help me by providing the same issue with the number of simultaneous four fingers on all songs
This will allow me to have a good base and also a multitude of exercises to work
I'd be willing to pay if this is necessary for your work effort

In advance thank you

There is a wealth of piano repertoire that explores unique hand positions and finger patterns. As you progress, you will be able to expand to all sorts of music which expands your technique utilizing the weaker fingers. Bach fugues are particularly good pieces for this. However, you must work up to this level for it to be of value for you.
