40 Piece Challenge 2018 - 2019.JPG
2019 - 2020

The 40 Piece Challenge is an event sponsored by the Facebook Page - The Art of Piano Pedagogy.

This event encourages piano teachers to keep themselves challenged in learning new repertoire, to the tune of 40 pieces through the academic school year (U.S. September through June)

In this years challenge I plan to fill up some gaps in my intermediate student repertoire lists, begin recording more preparatory literature, as well as record some classical literature and record some religious performances I'm planning.

I hope you enjoy the selections I've chosen!!  Happy Listening!!
