Re: Hanging on OS X High Sierra?

Have you emailed them? Every issue I've had has quickly been addressed by direct contact with Playground Sessions.

Re: the program crash

This forum doesn't see much traffic from the developers. Your best bet is to email them with a description of your problem. The turnaround time for email is quite fast.

Re: So what's next?

Laureness, I hear you on some folks preferring forums over Facebook. I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook myself. As a webmaster on the side, I once administered over 45 forums, pre-Facebook. Now, I only have 3, and they are all extremely established with over 10,000 members and literally 1...

Re: So what's next?

@polyphonic Well, the idea of playing the piano is to play songs. So, if you've finished all the lessons, why not take a shot at a song or two? I'm surprised you haven't decided to try one of your favorite songs already. I haven't finished the advanced bootcamp lessons yet, but I play about 15 songs...

Re: Forrest Gump Advanced Will Not Print

I've had the same problem with another piece of music. If you send PGS an email though the program, they will help you out. Don't try to use the chat, it doesn't work.

Re: Dynamic marking on sheet music

While I would love some updates, especially those that were promised a long time ago, the program works very well now, and the delay is understandable. For sure, take your time in hiring and training, no sense in breaking a fantastic learning tool.

Re: Speed and accuracy exercises

No argument with what you're saying, John, except that the new features that have come out are minor, and a long way from what has been promised. I mentioned to David some time ago that it would be best to stop promising new features, much less giving a date, if it isn't 100% going to happen. It mak...

Re: Speed and accuracy exercises

I love playground sessions for what it is, but the promised updates don't happen. When you identify an area in which you need work, it's best to seek alternative sources to help you out.

Re: Ability to draw or place symbol on sheet music

This is a feature that was requested over two years ago. Playground Sessions is great as it is, but upgrades in features don't happen. They concentrate in putting out songs instead. If you think it's important in your learning to reduce or remove finger numbering, you probably better find a differen...

Re: How to play guitar 'piano-style' on an actual piano?

BTW, there are some instructors that teach (via DVDs or downloads) the accompaniment style you're asking about. If you send me a PM, I'll point you in those directions. i have a few of their lessons. Playground so far doesn't really do that, we play the melody in the right hand and that way we don't...
