So i recently finished a two year beethoven study with a small break for an exam and a mazart sonata. i learned the 2nd, 8th, 14th, 15th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 29th, 30th, 31st, 32nd. It was massive 4 hours prac a day but i improved so much. now i am looking at learning some debussy, mainly the arabesques and suite bergamasque. could you rank each individual piece in difficulty or give a good order to learn them in because i felt i wasted a lot of time trying to play too complex bits in beethoven before an easier passage gave me the technique to play it

Here's a page with a bunch of Debussy's (among other composer's) pieces graded. It's not every piece he ever wrote, and the pieces arent in order of difficulty, but it should be of some help:
