Hi everyone. I have a student who is at a beginning to intermediate level who LOVES minor key waltzes. I've exhausted my supply; does anyone have suggestions?

I'd also like to have more pieces by women composers to offer. Most of my students are beginning to intermediate. Can anyone recommend collections or pieces featuring music written by women? Preferably classical, but other genres would be welcome too.

Thank you!
Mr. K

There is a new book out by Hal Leonard that I learned about (and purchased) at the MNTA conference:

Women Composers in History: 18 Intermediate to Late Intermediate Piano Pieces by 8 Composers (Compiled and Edited by Gail Smith)

Some of the composers are Amy Beach, Chaminade, Clara Schumann. It's a really nice collection.
