Repertoire Template

A nicely organized (updated!) repertoire or repertory (can't we just use English? ) is a super inspiration to any student.  He keeps a list of his pieces to refer to on a rainy day, a nostalgic day,  a day when folks are around and ask to hear music, or a day when it just feels nice to play something easy and relaxing.  Those are just some occasions when a repertoire is handy.  It's also useful for students to show new teachers and school/college applications.  Hey, it's even a nice to refer to when teaching.

So here's mine... and, yes, it needs some updating!  It's a nice template, and I'm sure there are others available online.  I only included pieces that I spent a significant time learning, not smaller pieces or ones I just sight read and never bothered polishing.

 I have not listed Sacred, Jazz or Popular music as of yet, but those are other legitimate categories!  I also like to keep a list of my memorized pieces, compositions, and pieces I learned by ear.  All wonderful projects for sometime in the far future, I'm sure. ;)
