The BachScholar® YouTube Channel, created in 2008 by pianist and scholar Dr. Cory Hall, currently offers over 700 videos ranging from Bach to Ragtime to piano tutorials on specialized topics. They are all free and viewable worldwide. Here are some reasons you should consider donating to BachScholar®:
- Dr. Hall is currently preparing piano sheet music for all of Bach's 400 four-part chorales using his proprietary and educational 3-Tier Format™, also known as the "Ultimate Piano Edition." In addition, Dr. Hall is currently recording these chorales. (CLICK HERE for an updated playlist.) All chorale sheets are available for download and FREE OF CHARGE. Instead of charging for the downloads, Dr. Hall simply asks for donations to the BACH CHORALE PROJECT. Piano students, teachers, and professionals alike are in dire need of quality piano editions of Bach's masterpieces of harmony, of which there are currently no sufficient editions. Your contributions will be used as compensation for the many hours it takes to prepare the sheet music and recordings for these chorales as well as funding complete hard-copy books of all 400 chorales once they are completed (around 2018-2019).

- Dr. Hall produces BachScholar's unique, educational videos in his home studio on his vintage 1929 Steinway and receives no compensation for the many hours a week spent practicing, memorizing, recording, and uploading.
