Re: How to effectively use Playground Sessions / Bootcamp modules? Order of completion/ practice routine?

Here is how I approach it. WHen working through the bootcamp lessons, I usually begins with the numbers, and then after the second or third section of a lesson move to the letters. Sometimes, I find myself having to go back and forth. Someone suggested elsewhere that it would be good to have an opti...

Re: Aim of lessons starting on different notes

I too was frustrated because of all the different hand positions. But on the positive side it keeps the learner from becoming entrenched with always using the same fingers for notes. As we all know, learning to play the piano as learning to type where one is always using the same fingers for the the...

Show notes when pressing sticky keys

I like how you can click on any note and it shows you the correct key to play on the bottom of the screen. Could you enable the reverse also? I mean have it so one can click on one of the sticky keys and all the notes associated with that key would highlight.

57 year old learning first time

I have been using Playground now for several months and am really enjoying it. However, I was getting frustrated with some lessons, and do not have a real teacher helping me, or just to talk to people about my experience. Today I received an email to sign up on Playground Session facebook page at ht...

Wait Mode for Practicing

I switched to Playground sessions after trying out other learning software. What I liked about Playground Sessions was the looping function, but what really sold me was the ability to switch from numbers, to notes,to no notation. What I don’t like, however, is that there is no way one can go through...

Re: Fit more of the score on the screen

I started out using an iPad Pro 12.9 inch but that lacks the ability to resize, so now I use an external monitor hooked up to my laptop. I really like that. It would be nice to have other viewing options like you suggested. I would like to suggest a two page view setting (which would be nice for tho...

Re: More shortcuts

I too have been wanting some more shortcuts. I’m waiting for the day when you can just talk to the computer and give commands (like one can with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Apple Siri devices.

Advance to next lesson

Currently there is no way to advance to next lesson, only sections inside a lesson. Once a lesson is over, one has to return to Bootcamp or Lessons area and pick the next lesson. It would be nice if following the last section of a lesson, there would be an icon or button to go directly to the next l...
