Etudes are great, but I’m a big believer in using your current repertoire and turning sections in to etudes. Most pieces have sections that are difficult for us and if you create a series of exercises, with the help of your teacher, around those sections, you will both be learning the piece AND working on an etude. Its great to have etudes, but, learning to come up with your own exercises can keep you going for years! Just think, a new etude within every new piece you learn. (I agree with all of the above, by the way. This all needs to be teacher guided, for sure!)
