Hi everyone! I am new to this board. I am not a piano teacher, just an interested parent of a piano student. My 11 year old daughter has been taking lessons for almost 2 years and we recently switched teachers. Her new teacher is terrific! She took her out of Alfred and started her on F&F Piano Adventures level 3A. My daughter likes it so much more! She gives her a ton of supplementary pieces and they are all very good choices and highly motivating. Over the past 3 months she has given her piano solos by Robert Vandall - Gypsy Earrings was one of them. Another one that she really enjoyed was from an Alfred's book called "Something Special", the name of the piece was "Touch A Rainbow". Very pretty. One of the newest pieces is a piano solo by Randall Hartsell titled "Starry Night". My daughter loves these solos!

Yikes! Sorry, I don't think "Gypsy Earrings" was by Robert Vandall. I've forgotten the name, but she also gives her Robert Vandall pieces.

I have used the Hartsell book Something Special (Alfred) for adults and they love it. He has also written some sheets published by Willis that I've used for adults.
Gypsy Earrings is written by Bret Adams, not Bret, as I previously posted.
