Re: Am I the only one who is having a heart attack at rookie session 8?!

Ngā peke me ngā heke! The climbing up the going down! Yeah, I'm barely out of rookie beginner, now going really slowly in rookie intermediate. For me, actually working out the psychology of it has been as tough as the music, i.e. expecting too much too fast, wanting to give up when it just feels imp...

Re: Printing problems: So What, moderate Rookie

OK, all sorted. Having 'mastered' So What I tried printing out Vivaldi and that succeeded. Thanks. Meanwhile I was hunting around for info on how many prints one gets and what happens when you run out. Is that in some FAQ someplace?

Re: I'd pity the human piano teacher with me as a student

I feel the same way. I also feel like the absence of shame and humiliation that comes with not having a human hear my efforts really makes the learning a whole lot more fun.

Arpeggio courses?

Hi, appreciating that courses get unlocked as one goes along, and you don't like giving much away, just wondering if there is an arpeggio course out there/in my future perhaps?

Re: Better to learn with numbers or letters for the keys (For the Advanced players)

I went through rookie bootcamp only using numbers. Now I'm partway through intermediate, I'm at the same time going back through rookie and playing with no numbers or letters.

There are some songs in the bootcamp lessons I come back to often to try to get to 100% on a first play, and just to make the playing better.

Re: Duration of individual session

OK... So just the general stats? So if I lo on today to start...I'll need to see what I'm up to in terms of time spent...then look again when I finish up, to see the time I've spent in this particular session?
