How to complement Playground sessions?

Post by Rafael_117 » Thu May 17, 2018 2:50 pm

Hey there,

I've been using the program for a week now and it seems cool but, I want to make sure I get as good as possible at the piano and I'm thinking of how to complement this software.

I'm going to get a music teacher so her/she can help me out with things that the software can detect like posture, anything else?

Been browsing this forum a bit and I'm also thinking of finding a way to practice scales, arpeggios.

Anything else?

As with any good teacher would tell you, no one can have all the right answers (and any teacher that tells you to never study with another one is a bad teacher!).

I'm thrilled you're enjoying Playground! So, in our video lessons by David Sides, his correct posture and hand positioning are definitely observable. But, it wouldn't hurt to have a few lessons with a piano teacher to make sure you're on the right track.

As for scales, chords, etc...we're focusing heavily on that right now through our "courses" in the app. Right now, there should be: One octave scales, two octave scales, both hands practice, 50 famous melodies, and coming soon - chords and reading music courses. These courses are unlockable within the app, and as long as you're making good progress in both the Bootcamp and the songs from the song store, you're bound to unlock them! (the specific requirements for this are supposed to be a surprise!)

So, yes, there's plenty of material within the Playground app to keep you busy and learning, but I would never advise against a compliment to the software. In fact, it would probably make Playground more enjoyable, and Playground would make your other study more enjoyable!
