The recital index is an excellent resource. There have been 30 recitals, each with about 50 participants. That's a lot of pieces, that someone thought was interesting enough to polish up and upload to share. There is a wide range of levels, from beginner pieces to intermediate and beyond.

Complimenting Sand Tiger's post.. I listen. wink

Once I know roughly what I'm after, I sight-read until I find something that feels good in my hands. Then, I learn it.

I keep a running list of pieces I want to learn... or at least I did until the amount of pieces and just composers in general whose works I wanted to learn far exceeded the number of those I didn't. For the time being, my teacher's selections will suffice.
