Put in scales practices. It can then show you what your fastest perfect score is.

Yes please to this from me also!
What Ilove about Playground Sessions ( as opposed to a couple of other online lessons I have tried) is the feeback on accuracy.
I only know the major scales. Would love to have a set to of all scles (and arpeggios) to practice against and check my progress.

I think a point here is that the boot camp lessons are great lessons. They do offer good practice, but we need some nice pure practice modes. Scales, Hanon Finger Exercises, and other keyboard fingering and familiarization exercises are needed. Especially if we get credit for the time spent working on them, and scores on how well we're progressing with them! :D

Yes I agree scales should definately be on here, I am a novice and prior to playfround I practices some scales from youtube videos, without that previous practice I think I may have struggled to persist with this platform. I also thing it is important to practice scales for fingering consistancy and accuracy for changing positions. Another reason scales practice may be a good idea is that once memorised it gives the pupil time to relax by taking there eyes of the screen , just consentrating playing the scale, which in turn relaxes the posture a little during practice sessions.
Hopefully some of this issues are rectified soon as this doesnt seem to be the most complete way to learn piano ...or does someone have a suggestion on where to find comprehensive scales practice? "little dissappointed""

Agreed.

We're going to be pushing our Scales content very soon, and will soon be incorporating Hanon exercises, arpeggios, and other technical drills and exercises.

I can't wait for this to be pushed out. I'm much more successful practicing with PGS than anything else.

I read somewhere, Facebook user's group probably, that this was going to be added last week. Did I miss an update, or did it not happen?

Hey everyone!

Last week we added a C major scale lesson into the Rookie Bootcamp. We have a full-blown scales course, with every key, coming soon! All lessons in that course will mimic the format of the C major scale lesson.
