There are a few series of solos, including "Trumpet Stars" (with names like Arcturus, Vega, and Lyra) and "Flowers" (Tulip, Marigold, or Daisies). These are all graded 1 - 3, with 3 being the hardest. Each songs has contrasting slow and fast sections and are about 2 minutes long.

Other "young artist" solos include:
