You have all inspired me because you are all playing pieces that I've never heard of or thought to try!

I bought Alfreds Level One All-Time-Favorites and I'm working on Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2 (I hope I have the fingering right!). I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas of pieces I could try besides the ones in this book? Maybe even some jazz pieces?

I'd ask my teacher, but with Christmas I won't see him for more than a week! I want to spend my holiday trying to learn some new things!

I'm confused. You finished "Adult Adventures," right? So Faber and Faber's Adult Piano Adventures? Or another one?

I think most Grade 1 and Grade 2 and possibly Grade 3 pieces should be within your playing ability if so. Pick up a collection series and try it out (the one I think of off hand is Keith Snell's, but there are many others).

If you want Jazz pieces, try Alfred's Jazz book.
