Pardon my bluntness, but you don't play the piano and you're trying to veto the teacher's suggestion based on personal preference? Why?

Back on topic: you could look for compilations that might contain a few of the pieces. There are series like Recital Winners and then the Piano Classics series which is nice to have on the shelf.

There are a bunch of books like this one on amazon:


If you want simpler arrangements:


I like the steinway library of piano series too.

There's a lot of used sheet music on ebay btw.

This one has the first two pieces you mentioned plus lots of other famous classics. Volume 2 has many more. Plus they have a nice comb binding that lays flat.

There are a couple of collections of music you might want to buy, just based on the wide variety music they have, including lots of pieces for beginners. One is the library of piano classics while the other is a set of anthologies from the boroque, classical, romantic, and 20th century. Other then that you can find a lot of music on imslp.

If you're looking for a specific series of works to tackle, Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier is always a good choice. Chopin's etudes are also very fun; don't be scared off by the word "etude", they're all very original and wonderfully musical.

If you're looking for collections, I have a bunch of books from the Library of Piano Classics series that are perfect for expanding your repertoire. I highly recommend them.

I just got back into piano after years of not playing. I bought this book: The Library of Piano Classics and I have really enjoyed it so far. There's a mix of difficulty, with some really well known songs and others I wasn't familiar with, ranging from Bach to the 20th century. I am really happy with it and considering getting the sequel.

I suggest getting a big book called "Library of Piano Classics."


It spans many composers from multiple eras (mainly Baroque, Classical, Romantic). All the songs are on the Beginner/Intermediate level. Great for sightreading and learning well-known pieces.

My recommendations are Piano Pieces for Adult Beginners and The Library of Piano Classics
. The first is mostly adaptations (and some complete versions) of classical pieces and some older pop tunes at an easier difficultly level, and the second is a bigger collection of complete classical pieces. Happy playing!

Get a book of music that is maybe a bit above your level, and try to play as much as you can from it. Example: when I was 13, my mom gave me the classic piano library here and I just really wanted to learn a bunch of the songs. The book was way above my level at the time, but I managed to get through a few of them pretty well - I think the first one I learned was The Beautiful Blue Danube. I got really good at reading after playing around in that book.

Another thing is to learn intervals and chords. I am the pianist at my church and I began a habit of reading chords instead of reading each individual note - which was generally how I read before - and my reading has gotten twice as fast.

this is popular. The quality is mediocre though. There is huge variation in difficulty. There's a library of easy piano classics too. No idea what's inside it.
