Chords, Scales and arpeggios

Post by draco2023a » Wed May 18, 2016 8:14 pm

Chords, Scales and arpeggios are pretty necessary in learning piano.
Why not have more complete practice lessons on them
I would like to see a practice session with chords that follows the same pattern you have been using (playing the root, third and fifth...then the chord and doing the same with the inversions) that goes through every major and minor triad..and then following up with sus2/4 and 7th chords in the same manner.
Heck I would even be willing to transcribe it all to sibelius (already did major and minor and their inversions.....It only took 950 measures :P)

Then it would be nice if you could go through all the major and minor scales...and throw in some arpeggio practice

Great idea!

We're actually in the process of creating drills and exercises for our users. Stay tuned for those to be added into our Bootcamp soon.

Sight-reading practice would be good as well.
If the Playground Sessions instant feedback keyboard app was combined with Piano Marvel’s sight reading competition and Sight Reading Factory’s unlimited customisable difficulty sheet music it would be awesome.

Courses are very near on the horizon. Currently, we have one course available for unlock - 50 famous melodies.

I've personally tested our scales course last month, and it, along with two other courses, are soon to be unlockable. The rules for unlocking these courses is a surprise!

WOW... this thread is 4 years old... And it looks like this feature was supposed to be added years ago. So much for that! so far I am very dissapointed in PGS. Basicaly piano theory is totally left out.
