Even though you already accepted an answer I’d like to add there is no right or wrong way to notate this as long as you get the desired result when the music is being read. It is your piece so you decide how you feel it and what the meter should be. I believe you made the right call in writing it in 3/4 time, it seems like a frantic waltz to me and 3/4 time ...

Well, I am currently practicing the "easier" etudes 10-3 and 24-12. Memorizing them is a first step. Then the most important part is musicality. These are pieces of music, not mountain climbing. Even with half the tempo they should sound great without hicks and wrong notes. Correct subtle pedalling and a mindful and careful Rubato is very important....

This technique means that the instrument and the singer ...

I would suggest some counting exercises that should help with feeling the down beat. Turn on a metronome on a phone, and set it to a very slow tempo—something like 50bpm. For about 20 seconds, count the beats along with the metronome. Without stopping the metronome, mute your phone, and continue counting each beat in your mind. After about 30 seconds, turn ...
