    Gentlemen,
    I know a student who is looking for college audition pieces. The students playing ability is probably a few years away from the standard "H" pieces.
    Would these pieces quality and acceptable works?

    Are those the solos with star names: Antares, Spica, etc? They are typically middle school solos here in New York. If played well, they are a nice addition to one's portfolio.

    Yes, There are some nice solos in that collection. "L'Allegr0" by Koepke, "Petie Piece Concertante" by balay,"Concertino" by Ostransky, "Morceau de Concours" by Alary, Elegie" by Duquesne,and "Serenade" by Bohme are the ones I like to work with with students. Music Minus One has this book wirh a CD play-a-long.

    I was thinking that they are a little on the easier skill side but better a good performance on an easier piece than the alternative, yes?
    Thanks for the help.

    The difficulty level would depend on what kind of school are they auditioning for. Are they going to major in music? While they would be easy for a conservatory audition, It is better to play really well then to play something hard badly. The teachers are looking for potential.
