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

Hi David, As feedback, I really appreciate the extra lessons in the "Reading Music - Staff Notation (Rookie)" Course. There are a lot of hours of lessons there, and I'm alternating between the bootcamp lessons and this course, that is, I do the bootcamp lessons and then the course lessons that are a...

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

I've just started Playground Sessions and am at the same stage as you, I get the theory but the fingers don't yet know which keys to press when looking at the staff. I just unlocked the "Reading Music - Staff Notation (Rookie)" Course and have started doing that, it is a lot more practice on being a...

Re: Hello from the Blue Mountains in Australia

Thanks John, I had a look at the mixers you referenced plus a few others as well, but for simplicity I will probably settle for a dual input PC speaker set. While the ones I looked at cannot adjust individual input levels, they do mix the audio, and in reality the input volumes can be adjusted separ...

Re: Hello from the Blue Mountains in Australia

Thanks Andrew and JBS. I must admit I bought Piano Discovery by Jump Music in the late 1990s for my children to learn piano on a Technics keyboard, but they never persisted with it. I also tried it while setting it up for my children, but didn't get past the first few lessons due to time constraints...

Hello from the Blue Mountains in Australia

Hi All, I was given an upright piano that was a family heirloom, but at 58 years old I have never played music. I started researching how best to learn the piano, and Playground Sessions got some great writeups, but doesn't work with an acoustic piano. To cut a long story short, I purchased a Roland...
