Re: Rookie Lesson 60 The Dot should come earlier

The lessons sometimes get reorganized.

From what I hear they are working on the lessons and fixing up some of the order.

Re: Sour Notes?

Check that your audio for the computing device is set to 44.1KHz. That always messed up my iPad. After some updates the system would reset it to 48KHz and I'd have really cranky audio. Putting it back to 44.1KHz always fixed it for me.

My Playground Sessions Setup - sw1tch73ch

It connects to a USB port on a Microsoft Surface Dock. That in turn ties to my 2017 Surface Pro (the one yea...

Re: Challenges with 2 hand play

Hello Woodyd. I'm going to echo Andrew here. I still run into that on new lessons and songs. The trick is to, as you do, work through the both hands "off the clock" to work out mentally when things happen together between the two hands, and when they occur separately. Then I start with a VERY slow c...

Re: compatibility with...

This is probably what has everyone concerned: https://www.gearnews.com/macos-catalina ... ts-launch/

Re: is this way better for some

I think teachers are excellent and if you have one you like, talk to them about Playground Sessions. There is a Teacher program that Playground Sessions is offering. They can incorporate the app into their lessons. On the other hand, Playground Sessions is right there 24x7 for your aid. I practice a...

Re: Learning by reading notes not numbers

I just started the lesson ytd and have the same confusion, as I always tend to look at the numbering instead of the note itself. So I think I should turn of the number system right away so as to force me to read the notes instead. Try playing the lessons once or twice with the numbers on to get the...

Re: Hello from HK!

The best recommendation is that you find a system that works for you. The PX-160 will do the job.

The PX-160 has the important features. 88 Weighted piano keys with touch sensitivity, and a USB port to connect to your computer or tablet.
