Re: No more blurry texts on Win10 with high resolution screens!

I'm using a Microsoft Surface Pro. I haven't had trouble with Blurriness. Unless I forget my glasses ;-)

There might be a Windows setting your need to use for making the text clear.

Re: Money saving tip for ipad Pro connection for Playground

The iPad Pro is the only one with USB-C. For the other iPads you do need the Connection kit. But it would be good for the FAQ to note that the USB-C to USB Type B will do.

Re: Hello from London

There are aspects of Playground Session that are geared around 10 fingers per person. But that said, there is nothing in the program that requires that you play a piece perfectly before advancing. It does reward high level performances more, but the key is to learn how to play music and what fingers...

Re: Sight Reading hopeful for PGS

But it has to be repeated enough for you to learn it. which is why i suggested making daily exercises and the test like the SASR to do it everyday enough so you can learn and test can tell you if you are improving or not. i have improved over the last 16 days using it. while its still not great im ...

Re: Sight Reading hopeful for PGS

I have not tried that sight reading assessment tool. I do have to wonder though, what the instruction they are providing, or if it is only a way to score your practice with some sort of number. PGS gives you a percent correct score, which isn't a standardized assessment, but it is a way to judge how...

Re: Confused about hand positioning

An idea I like to recommend is use the finger numbers as a study tool. Yes, play with them on for a little bit, to help you learn how to put your hands over the keys, but look at the numbers before playing and figure out how the notes are numbered, put your fingers over those notes on the keyboard a...

Re: Questions about notation

Good question. I would think that since 1 and 2 measures are musically in the same place, you'd play the 2 without the 1 the next time through. Also, that is where the fine is. But this isn't something I've thought about much before.

Re: Dashboard not showing on Ipad

Dashboard is one of the things that should be in the iPad upgrade. I don't know what their timeline for the udpate is, but they have said their goal is parity between tablet and desktop (that includes looping and zooming, I think).

Re: Yamaha Disklavier Mark IV background music

That depends entirely on your piano. The background music is traditional audio files, so you'll need an AUX Input and connect the headphone out of the iPad to the Piano that way.

Re: Interactive Keyboard for Rookie-Moderate and up

I like SJunior22's answer. A second thought is that the lessons aren't a race and there is no best pace to work through them. Work on each one more than you might think you need too - but not all in a row. Go back to previous lessons and play through them so that they are fresh and somewhat challeng...
