I am starting lessons again in two or three weeks. I am on Piano Adventures Book 2b
So that gives you a sense of my level. I haven't practised in almost a year and my question is how much should I aim to prepare in advance of my first lesson? Wanting it all I bought all of the books in my series for my level and so I have far more music then I can learn right now. If anyone is familiar with the series can you suggest which books I should focus on and how many pieces from these books?

I'm not familiar wth the Piano Adventures Books. I imagine the pieces in them are fairly short. Though it doesn't matter. Prepare what you can. If it's one piece, then that's what it is. If it's not even an entire piece, explain to your teacher when you started working on it. Your teacher can tell much by that too. Do you know if these are the books your teacher is going to use with you? Because she may take a listen to what you have prepared and go in an entirely new directon with you.

Are you in contact with the teacher with whom you'll be taking lessons? Why not shoot them an email and ask them yourself?

Oh what a difference the ending of a sentence makes. First I read "Why not shoot them?" laugh

Good advice, btw.
