My young students really enjoy Dozen a Day, but other than scales and arpeggios, where can I find exciting etudes that provide a strong technical foundation for students over the age of 10 that are in Level 2 and up? For example, Etude Energetico is in Faber PA Technique and Artistry. Yet, that is the only etude in the entire book. I am hoping someone can direct me to a series that provides a book of "exciting" yet sound technical studies.

Czerny Op. 599
Gurlitt Op. 82
Burgmuller Op. 100

But at this level I don't have my students do any etudes. Maybe some scales.

Hummm, Czerny isn't my idea of fun nor exciting. However, a few from Burgmuller, and I emphasize few , might qualify. I'd search out a graded collection.

"Expressive Etudes" (FJH) is a leveled collection of various classical composers. I use this series to introduce classical repertoire to my Lev 2 students on up.

Have a look at the technique, masterworks, and repertoire books in Catherine Rollin's Pathways to Artistry series. They're fantastic - good technical exercises matched up with examples from the repertoire. The masterworks are classical literature (and not the usual stuff you find in most anthologies), and the repertoire books are Rollin's own compositions.

Kreisler, I love Rollin, especially her Spanish music. I met her at a Piano Teachers' Forum meeting and feel in love with her Spanish music. I have the first 3 volumes of Pathways to Artistry as well. If I recall, they are classical in style. Most of my students show little interest/practice in those types of etudes, unfortunately. I'll take a look again. Thanks!
