The Music for Millions series is a great educational resource of piano pieces composed by pianists, especially for growing piano students. Easy Classics to Moderns Volume 17 includes 142 easy piano pieces composed from the mid-1700s to the present day. Many are only 2 lines long, so they are just the right length for a student’s very first (*gulp*) recital. There are the familiar pieces by J.S. Bach, such as Minuet in G, and Musette in D; Old French Song by Tchaikovsky; Six Miniatures by Bartok, and many more. The variety of the time periods presented offer the opportunity to become familiar with piano music across the ages. If you are preparing students for OMEA adjudications at the middle school level, anything in this collection is acceptable! If you have never used this collection before in your studio, I encourage you to check it out!
