Intermediate Repertoire Collections

I'd like to share some great collections of intermediate-level piano repertoire. All of these have a great variety of pieces from each of the four musical periods, and I have personally used them and recommend them! I know there are many more out there - if you have favorites that you use in your teaching that aren't listed here, please share! We can all benefit from recommendations from other teachers. And don't miss some recommendations for great intermediate pieces (and audio/video samples of each piece) here. Click on the pictures below for more information on the collections.

I also love the Bastien Piano Literature series. Book 1 starts out with Bach Minuets and pieces from Schumann's Album for the Young, and Book 5 includes a Haydn Sonata and a whole Bach suite. Every book has a great selection from all the musical periods. One of my favorite series' to use.
