iPad Bluetooth connection

So I just got the Yamaha P115 and I love it! I have no problem connecting with my cable, but I would love to be able to wirelessly connect to Playground so I can charge at the same time. I can't quite decide how to go about that and I am wondering what has worked for people and what I need to buy fo...

Re: Keyboard recommendations

Thanks for your reply! I went to Guitar Center just to check out the P115 and they just happened to be having a sale $100 off :o I played like you said, with sound, without sound, seemed really great compared to what I have/had but I just couldn't totally decide. They had none in stock other than th...

Re: Keyboard recommendations

:| I guess that would have been a good thing to add is price range. From what I am seeing anywhere from $600-900 looks to be about where I would probably try to stay. I am looking closely at the P115. Going to the store today and try a few out. Take a couple of Playground songs I have mastered so I ...

Keyboard recommendations

I have an old Yamaha P-80 which has suited my needs all these years perfectly, but I am ready to upgrade to something a little newer, better now that technology has advanced :) I don't do anything with my keyboard other than play piano. I don't write music or use any of the bells and whistles that c...

Lean on Me

I have more or less mastered Lean on Me Rookie and really enjoy playing it. I was wondering if you have considered an Intermediate version? It would be so fun to play with some added chords and stuff to give it a little more flavor as I am advancing :)

Thanks!

Re: how to remove fingering when printing purchased sheet music?

I just searched the forum for the exact same question. I have more or less mastered Lean On Me so I decided to turn the fingering off. Wow, what a difference it makes! I didn't realize how much I was depending on it to play accurately! In the meantime, I am going to take my printed music and white o...

New exercises to be added?

I have seen some old posts about adding some sight reading exercises and other practice session lessons but I can't figure out if that has been done yet or not. My subscription has run out and I am trying to decide which program I am going to go with from here. I absolutely LOVE Playground but I hav...

Re: 3 Weeks and I'm Done!

My subscription ran out and I am considering renewing but I am on the fence between this and some other programs. One thing I like in a few programs is the fact that you can practice exercises without going through lessons, the type of thing you mentioned in the post to Richard. Since that was in Ma...

Social media

I am curious about the connect to Facebook option. It will not let me choose the option, only freezes when I try. Has anyone used it? Is it just for bragging rights or can you actually connect with people? Also, is there a way to view your progress along with others? Like challenges or such? Thanks!...
