You have to remember also that a piece one person finds easy another person will find hard. It depends on what your strengths and weaknesses are.

As others have said your mother teaches piano and presumably teaches you so she is the best to advise you. I do agree about choosing pieces you like though.

I just sat G5 piano after many years of no piano, crossing my fingers it worked out, still to hear.  I am practising a grade 6 piece (the little ballerina) because it's a lovely tune, but not sure if I will be able to do grade 6 in 2020 as I've never sat a theory exam, so maybe 2020/21 for my next practical  :) unless I manage to rattle on with theory, which is unlikely  :rolleyes:

Im planning on taking grade 8 violin next year, not sure if ill sit it in the spring or summer though. Scales are almost secure, just need to work on slurred bowing. A piece mostly learned, B piece learned but needs a lot of polishing, C piece mostly learned. My biggest weakness is aural tests

I am going to chuck myself in the deep end by entering for cello grade 3. Only started cello in the summer but it’s coming along fast and I love it - helpful that I understand the music - just getting my head around how to do all the technique stuff really well. Oh and aiming for DipA in the summer - piano not cello! It’s gonna be a music-filled new year!
