I am wondering what material and specifically, which pieces do you use for your 2A--3B students for Classical pieces?

I love the Faber Classics books to introduce classical music, especially "popular" classical pieces. For pieces in original form, I've used the Developing Artist series and the Bastian Literature books. I used the Bastian books as a student, so that's why I went to them. I also use a Francis Clark book of just contemporary literature.

I've been looking at a lot of classical repertoire books and I found 'Journey Through The Classics Complete' Book 1-4. I haven't actually use it but I think it will be good for 2A/3B students.

I like to introduce the RCM (Celebration Series) around this level. I start with Grade 1. We use whatever pieces happen to be in the book - which can vary if they're using an older edition etc.
