Student Concertos for Intermediate / Pre-Advance Level

December 23, 2018, 9:13 AM · We all dream of playing the great concertos of Mendelssohn, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and others. However, without proper intermediate-level repertoire to bridge the gap, young students attempting these challenging pieces too early may struggle and develop bad habits that hinder their progress.

Selecting the right repertoire for students is one the most important responsibilities of music teachers. The piece that was chosen for the purpose of learning must not exceed the level of challenge a student can handle. Students will benefit from a carefully selected repertoire that does not overwhelm their current abilities but poses sufficient challenges that enhance their skills.
