comment Is there a way to guesstimate how long it will take me to play a specific piece?
@Babu : agreed. that why I'm asking if there's somewhere a database condensing all this. certainly they have been hundreds of people in my exact situation before (same age, same dexterity, same motivation, etc), and with enough data, one could certainly make statistically valid assumptions !

well, I didn't want to start a lengthy discussion on the verb "play" in "When will I be able to play this piece". One might argue you never play anything properly, and another one that even hitting the keys in a random fashion is playing. Thousands of people are learning the piano every year. I guess there should be some "norm", and that every specific piece will usually (in a Gaussian sense) be "achievable" after x years of practice.

I don't understand your answer. Right now I'm a total beginner. If I was to start learning a very difficult piece, I guess the "hardest" page would take me years to learn, and then the following ones would take only days (because I've built up a lot of skill learning that hard page that I can use on the other ones)
