Great suggestion! We'll definitely keep that in mind when adding to the Courses section of the app!

I am curious as to other people's experience weaning themselves off of the finger numbers and note letters when reading the music. I am also trying the method of going through a lesson on slow with the numbers, then switching to letters, then switching to just notes.affordable essay writing service
It does seem like the third time around I am just counting on memorization rather than reading the music however...

A lot of sheet music with fingering on them do not show a finger number for each and every note throughout an entire song. The fingering is shown the first time a particular note is to be played, and then a number above or below that note appears again only if a change of hand position or fingering occurs in the middle of the song. I find this approach to be better not only because the written music looks cleaner, less cluttered, but also because it makes the finger numbers less than a crutch. I know I can turn the numbers off completely in PGS, but I find the method described above to be an ideal transition from seeing numbers above or below every single note and turning them off completely. Also, this is quite similar to the way key signatures work (for example, no need to write a sharp sign for every F# note on a song written in G Major).

Is this approach to fingering aids that I just described something that could be implemented in PGS?
