I've been teaching for about five years now and enjoy it very much. Though my students have a wide range of abilites from very beginners to third year music undergraduates the area in which I am looking for some advice is related to my endless quest for interesting and satisfying repertoire for students around ABRSM Grade 5 standard. I've got a student sitting her Grade 5 today (bless her!) and I really want to give her some good, challenging but gratifying stuff to get her teeth into post-exam. She's worked on some reasonably tricky studies but while her enthusiasm is up there it would be nice to address some new technical areas too. What do you fellow teachers out there go for post-exam? And (last point, I promise!) has anyone any genius advice to offer about the teaching of vibrato.....? Many thanks in advance for your time and wisdom!
