Re: a newbie asks about buying digitized songs

Thanks for your response. I have found places to download sheet music for sale that will display on a computer and that can be printed, but not that will play themselves using a MIDI keyboard. Being able to play through the keyboard would be so much help for learning a piece and is part of what make...

a newbie asks about buying digitized songs

I'm about to finish bootcamp and am interested in buying music to continue with my playing. I've visited the PS library and see songs available there that would, I presume, be in exactly the same format as the music I have been learning in bootcamp. I subscribe to PS, so if I end my subscription at ...

Re: Anyone else find Rookie New World Symphony tricky?

I think I worked on that longer than any other exercise...hundreds of attempts before getting 100%. Never say die! It was proof to me that I really wanted to learn to play the piano in the fact that I didn't end up hating the piece.

Re: for me it's all about nerves and feel

That's a good point. Perhaps some of the slower progress with the teacher was the nervousness. There are two different factors, one is the presence of an audience (of even one person) and the other is the demand to perform to a standard. I suppose if one could get so involved in playing that the aud...

Re: for me it's all about nerves and feel

I had a teacher about 12 years ago and found it far slower going than with PS. There was only one session with the teacher each week and I didn't have the computer to prompt me, just the paper score which made it boring without the immediate feedback of PS. Being more of a chore than an encouragemen...

for me it's all about nerves and feel

I've been at this now for several months practicing daily and I'm very happy with the results. I am finally getting a feel for where the keys are so that I can play without looking at the keyboard. Things are beginning to feel right to my fingers and I think that's a good sign. The other factor is n...

Re: Am I going nuts or is this a bug?

That's right, the notes are tied. That's all good. All I ask is for someone else to play these notes (a G held for the duration), fast or slow, with or without the rest of the score, and get them to indicate green. In other words, can the user, the player, you, play it so it shows those two G notes ...

Re: Am I going nuts or is this a bug?

Using the piano demo doesn't help answer my question. This involves a human playing them, not the demo The problem is that apparently these two notes cannot be played by you or me or anyone so that they indicate green. As mentioned, I slowed down the tempo to a ridiculously slow speed and specifical...

Am I going nuts or is this a bug?

This concerns the advanced tour #11. See the attached capture of part of the score and notice the red rectangle around the two notes (two G's tied) in measure number 9. I cannot get these two notes to indicate green though I have been able to play the entire score and get all the rest of the notes t...
