Clementi - 6 Sonatinas for Piano (Op. 36)

With the middle of May having come and gone, I have officially started my summer break.  While I still will continue teaching lessons this summer, my schedule is much slower - at least in relation to work! - and one of my goals is to spend more time practicing piano.

I recently moved and have been sorting through everything, which has also included my piano music.  As I was going through what I have, I came across a copy of Clementi's 6 Sonatinas for Piano (Op. 36) that belonged to my great-grandmother.  While the cover's a bit frail, the music is in good shape.  So, I've decided that I am going to work my way through these six sonatinas.  This is the first time I have tackled anything by Clementi, and I have to say that I'm enjoying his music so far.

How about you?  What are your music goals for the summer?


  1. I'm going to compose music! For weddings, movies, and piano lessons!

  2. Also, Clementi is very good, easy, and fun! However, once you get to his 4th sonatina, it all starts to sound a bit similar...

  3. De Mentor - I'm looking forward to what you come up with this summer!
