I have a new pupil who has very limited access to a piano to practise, and limited English. I think she's around grade 3-4 standard. Her mum has asked me to get her playing again, so we're looking for a book of music she will really enjoy.
I have played L'Orage (Burgmuller), and a beautiful Heller study, and she's starting off with some Walter Carroll. None of these have delighted her...(I asked for marks out of 10 for how much she likes them, due to limited English - something I also do for silent younger pupils.) These were given 7... However, playing Pianoworks Duets book 1, Hello Jamaica! (Allan Bullard) she gave it 9...So looking for something upbeat in a similar vein, but solo.
