I have inherited a pupil starting next term who would like to work towards Grade 5. She has covered the work for Grade 4 but does not wish to take the exam. So I am looking for a book which includes a variety of Grade 5 and 6 pieces, so that we can spend the first term or so working on non-exam pieces before launching into Grade 5 proper. After the exam we could then return to the book and learn the Grade 6 pieces. It's always difficult to gain a proper insight into music online as you can at best only see little bits of sample music if you're lucky, so I'm wondering if members could make suggestions or comment on music I've looked at online.
Has anyone had experience of using Solos for Young Violinists Vol 2 or Solo Time for Violin Book 2? (I'm guessing the level is appropriate). Encore Violin Book 3 has pieces at this level but I've taught them all before and would like a change! The Robert Trory Violin Playing books look interesting and comprehensive but I don't know of anyone who has used them. Do the Trory books come with piano accompaniments?
Thank you in advance.
