These YouTube Playlists correspond with the pieces printed in The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Celebration Series Sixth Edition, Level 3.
RCM Level 3 consists of two volumes.
The Piano Repertoire book contains three lists of music:
- List A has Baroque Repertoire.
- List B, Classical and Classical-style Repertoire.
- List C, Romantic, 20th-, and 21st-century Repertoire. Teachers have the option of substituting a ‘Teacher’s Choice’ selection for List C.
The Etudes book contains 18 pieces (many of them one page) that address technical development in a fun way for this Early Intermediate level.
To make it easy to listen through the volumes, these playlists are presented in the order that the music is printed in the books.
However, if you’d prefer to listen to just one title, click on the link or image given in each section. This will take you to the playlist in YouTube, where you will be able to listen to just one video.
These videos were chosen to help you get a sense of each piece.
You may need to adjust the volume at times, as the recordings may have different levels.

Deep in the Meadow is an RCM syllabus selection for Level 3 List C. This blog post gives you an inside view of the composition process and music.

Deep in the Meadow can be a conversation starter on what music means to our collective culture and gives students music they can believe in as they define their values in this world. Keep reading >>
Level 3 Etudes / Studies
Etudes are a mix between technical exercises (like scales) and longer pieces. Each etude is based on one piano skill and helps you learn it in a short and often really fun piece.

Because I’m using content developed by others, occasionally it will get deleted by the original creator. It will be impossible for me to keep track of it all, so if you notice that a piece has suddenly gone missing from a playlist, please contact me! I’ll find a replacement lickety-split!

What an amazingly wonderful resource… can’t express enough appreciation!!!!!!
Leona, Thanks for your comment! It means a lot! It’s been a lot of work but it was something I wished I had as a teacher. When I’m missing something in my studio I figure maybe other teachers could use it, too! It’s the whole “necessity is the mother of invention” thing–haha! 🙂
