Re: How to play with both hands VIDEO wont play

Is this on an iPad? You have to make sure the sound is set to use 44.1 kHz. The iPad often flops over to 48 kHz and the videos and audio from the accompaniment often sound wrong or just don't play.

You won't have to start over. Playground sessions saves that info to the cloud and will show you what you have done. You also don't have to download the lessons you've already completed unless you want to work them again.

Re: Rookie Lessons have changed

Can someone please explain what has happened. This is something I've experience a couple times. But I didn't have that Horror moment - I recognized the guys and gals at Playground Sessions had come up with more content. It is worth going through the lessons: partly as a refresher, partly as a new p...

Re: Intermediate Tour - Lesson #16 (8th Notes and Rests)

Something to consider is the Chords Course that is an adjunct to the boot camps. I haven't gotten there yet so I can't comment specifically on the content, but I would imagine the chords are all there, including their inversions. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the courses, too.

Re: YouTube ads for Playground Sessions

YouTube is a Google product, meaning Google knows what things you look at. Unfortunately, not everything is something you buy in bulk - like lifetime memberships to a piano school. So if you already have it, you don't need another. When I bought my car, I suddenly got a glut of car ads. HELLO! I JUS...

Re: Finger Position Between Black Keys

Hey, that's a good point, Andrew! I just checked on my 49 Key synth and my flat hand does press on the black keys more than on my 88 key piano. But my fingertips still fit if I align them with the curved fingers so that the tips are straight up and down. If I try to play just the white keys on eithe...

Re: Finger Position Between Black Keys

Let us know how working with the hand position goes. It should help - even on my relatively deep throw piano I find the keys are all the way down before my first knuckle tries to squeeze in. My #3 finger does touch both of the black keys, but so far isn't pressing down more than one key at a time.

Re: Finger Position Between Black Keys

Flat won't work, because the knuckles of your fingers and the black keys will bind and you'll press them when you press the white keys. The twisted is not recommended for physical health of your hands reasons. What Andrew was referencing was trying to curl your fingers which should be similar to the...

Re: Getting 100% on songs

Thanks for following up, Andrew. I need a pithy way to add to my 3 in a row rant. Because it is really only Three In A Row as a minimum, even if I'm feeling confident I need to score 100% at least three times in a row so I know it isn't a fluke. To be sure, if I've done twenty in a row but still fee...

Re: Getting 100% on songs

I like to play a piece to 100% at least three times in a row. Count starts over if it isn't 100%. Also, the app scores you on time played and practice points. I like to make sure I've played to 100% three times in a row with 0 Performance Points. To get 0 Performance points, you have to reach a poin...
