Hi Everyone,

I'm looking to balanace a few of my students' classical methods with some more contemporary music.  I know of William Gillock, but that's about it.  Are there any books you could recommend that have a good mix of contemporary piano music for beginner students?  Unfortunately, all of the local music stores have closed. So, I don't have an opportunity to do much shopping around anymore and in the sea of music on Sheet Music Plus.com, I'm afraid I don't know where to start.

Any suggestions are much appreciated.  Just to reiterate, these students are not advanced.  I'm just looking for music to spark their imagination a little.

Thanks!

Adam

There's a series called "Contemporary Collage" (which you can get from SMP) which appears designed just for your purpose.

Take a look at Robert Vandall - especially his 3-volume Prelude books.  Also look at Catherine Rollin's Pathway to Artistry - 3 level with Rep, Coordinating Technique and Performance Books.  Rollin is all original compositions, but in the classical modes.

Kabalevsky, Bartok, Maykapar, Gretchaninoff and Shostakovich have written loads of charming pieces for children.  It is worth looking at them!
