As for Debussy, start yourself on this:
Prelude VI: Des pas sur la neige (Footsteps in the snow)

It's a really effective piece, but not too hard once you get your head round the various layers to it. About grade 4 standard when you include all the dynamics and articulation.

You could also try Prelude VIII: La fille aux cheveux de lin (The girl with the flaxen hair), which is a bit harder, maybe grade 5/6 standard.

Here's the score for the book which the two preludes are in:
Debussy Preludes Book 1

@ Mods: Debussy died in 1918, so his music is out of copyright worldwide (the country with the longest period of copyright being Canada; 90 years after the death of the author), in case you were wondering whether it's legal to post his scores here.

I've only got grade 1, but tempted to take my synth. I just muck about on it , and am pretty rubbish on it. But its fun.

To think of it now..getting a music student to teach me will be a good idea..and i might get it free of charge if he/she happens to be my friend. ^^

I don't quite like Debussy's pieces..somehow haven't learned the way to appreciate it. I prefer Beethoven and Chopin's pieces(for romantic and classical) and Bach(my favourite composer, and what more, of my favourite type of music-Baroque!)

I'll check out the scores you provided.
