Bach did not write any really easy keyboard music.


The Inventions and Sinfonias is a collection of short pieces Bach wrote for the musical education of his young pupils. These are among the finest examples of artistic gems ever written for this purpose, and probably because of this, they became very popular among Bach’s pupils and others ever since they were written.

These pieces belong, from the technical point of view, to many different Grades

In the grading system used in much of the world that first Invention comes in at Grade 4, and most students wouldn’t manage grade 4 in less than 5/6 years (and even then, that’s assuming they are practicing regularly and well). Most of the inventions are considered to be Grade 5 to 6.
