We strive to present a consistent difficulty rating for large ensemble, small ensemble, and solo works, especially for works performed by student musicians. The list below roughly equates with most school settings. Keep in mind there are many variables in grading and programming; therefore, concerts may well contain music of different difficulty levels. 

B: Beginning Level (first concert) 

VE: Very Easy (first year) 

E: Easy (years 2-3, typically middle school) 

ME: Medium Easy (Year 3-4, typically junior high and high school) 

M: Medium (typically high school) 

MA: Medium Advanced (collegiate and accomplished high school) 

A: Advanced (professional)
