This document is an analytical and pedagogical guide to J.S. Bach's Eighteen Little Preludes, which can be considered by teachers as valid pedagogical material for transitioning from late elementary level to intermediate levels of J.S. Bach's keyboard works. This paper contains a brief biography of J.S. Bach and historical background of the Eighteenth Little Preludes. In addition, this paper focuses on the pedagogical aspects of each prelude and includes a discussion of styles, interpretation, performance techniques, as well as technical solutions.
