Instant Feedback Option

I would like to see a feature where the user has the option to disable Instant Feedback and still be able to see the red error notes after completing the lesson. Reason: The red notes suddenly appearing on the screen can be a distraction while the user is trying to play the piece, especially when lo...

Practice Schedule

One of the advantages of a real teacher is that the teacher assigns a practice schedule for the week. Having an assigned practice schedule is a huge incentive to accomplishing one’s goals. Since Playground Sessions does not have assignments, has anyone come up with a good method to proceed through t...

I am curious why it has taken so long to implement a ‘Search’ feature in the store. The logical way to store the songs is in a database and implementing a search in a database is trivial using SQL statements. I know I can search from the home page store, but it certainly would be more handy to searc...

The line above the phrase is probably a slur rather than a tie.
