In another thread, it was brought up about how much listening to great piano music can inspire our students.

In addition to sending them home with recordings of the great pianists playing pieces our students will play in the future, I'd love to send students home with recordings of things they can play now. And not a little cassette of me playing something, or a cd at the back of the Essential Keyboard Repertoire collection that contains 92 pieces played rather carelessly...

One good example of something I DO send home with students is Philip Johnston's cd, "Not Until You've Done Your Practice"...It's a terrific collection of pieces from Beginner through Late Intermediate. Plus there's a couple very advanced things thrown in for variety, too. It's a well-produced recording and a very nice listen.

Does anyone know of other recordings like this....that treat these beginning and intermediate pieces with artistic integrity?
