I have a young student who has gone through Piano Adventures Primer and is currently on PA Level 1. She's enjoying it, but rather slow to progress and I think needs more consolidation at the "PA Level 1" level before she goes on to Upgrade 0-1 (which is what I have done with other students in the past) and from there to grade 1. Her technique is slow to come along, and her reading likewise.
Could you lovely people recommend some attractive repertoire books at this level for me to peruse? It might be that the Piano Adventures ones are appropriate, but I always feel a bit dazed looking at the range of books in that series. I can only browse online as my local music shop does not stock Piano Adventures, so it's hard to get a feel for the content. I've noticed the Piano Adventures have books of popular tunes, jazz and blues and classics - but I'd prefer a broader repertoire book. I don't want her to have to buy more than one. In addition, the PA series is confusing me as their "Students Choice" repertoire book at Level 1, is a horizontal binding, rather like the Primer, so should I be looking at Level 2 which is the first vertically-bound repertoire book??? All very confusing. Perhaps something away from PA would be good, to give her experience of reading things that are formatted differently, different size stave and so-on. All suggestions will be appreciated and investigated.
