I have a student who just broke his right wrist. He's about Gr1-2 in Royal Conservatory, and when I searched this topic on the web all I got were the usual upper level pieces, which of course are much too hard for him. I would appreciate any and all suggestions for repertoire. (I have lots of technical materials for the LH that he can work on.)

You might want to give examples of pieces this student has played. Not everyone is familiar with the Royal Conservatory grading system.

Maybe pick the next piece he's going to learn, work on analysis and other pre-practice type work, and then begin working on the difficult left hand sections while the wrist heals?

Of course that would be fun too \:\)

Thanks for the ideas people. Some pieces from RCT Gr1 are: Minuet in F Major, K2, Mozart; Halloween Night, Linda Niamath; Beaver Boogie, Stephen Chatman; Jeremiah Clarke, Minuet in D, T 460; and The Hunting Horns and the Echo by Daniel Gottlob Turk, among others.
Thanks again.
