As the end of the teaching year approaches, can you see your teen piano students’ stress levels rise?
I do not envy teenagers in April, May, and June. They are swamped with school assignments and tests.
And if they are piano students too, they are also swamped with recital and exam preparations.
Often, this means that they spend their evenings tackling 6 page piano pieces and thick theory books.
These teens need a break. If only for a moment, they need to remember what it feels like to play piano “for fun”.
In today’s post, we’re sharing a powerful classical pop piano solo that your intermediate teens can learn in a matter of minutes.
This inspiring solo, based on music by Anton Diabelli, is a wonderful resource to use when your teens look like they need a mental break from intense musical studies.

When it comes to teen repertoire, we focus on creating a bridge that connects today’s piano students with the most popular classical pieces from the past.
This classical pop crossover approach is at the heart of our most popular teen books, including titles like The Amadeus Anthems, The Beethoven Sessions, and, of course, the WunderKeys Intermediate Pop Performance books.
