Hey teachers :p ,

It's the summer holidays again and my piano teacher just said: 'you can play from these books as much or as little as you want. You could also anything, not too hard, what you like.' I got 2 books from her. They won't say anything to you guys because they're dutch but if so. These are the names:
  • Popsongs Spelen... Zó doe je dat!
  • Folk Dean Melodische Etudes

So now i'm asking you guys is there any popular song you could suggest of playing.

I'm currently on page 86 in Alfred's Basic Piano Course 1, but i got extra work because i'm 'improving very fast.' According to the teacher. Which made me even more motivated Wimbwicket

Your best bet is to go to a music store, and just start looking. You can generally tell what looks too easy or too hard to play, and you'll be able to recognize songs since you are looking for a popular tune to play. Sorry I don't have better advice, but that's usually the best way to find new music when you don't know exactly what to get. \:\)
