Thank you for posting, Diane. As you can see, everyone here adds their own favorite ingredient to the special sauce that makes up an adult student of piano. Very nice video. Are all of your adult students adult re-starters?

Clearly, there are teething problems. I'm not in a mad dash, if anything, it seems that the pickup and turnaround was faster than I'd expected. I hope no one feels they're being pushed too fast, or that I'm pushing. If this idea is to be construct

Immediately thought of this thread and had to laugh. I was watching Howard Goodall's Big bangs ; The invention of Notation. He had trained choristers play a game of Gregorian Whispers, and it was amazing how wrong they got it..

The feedback we're getting is very intriguing. So it seems the problem was not with the actual exercise, but with playing the excerpt afterwards. I think that as long as the performance is rhythmically accurate and even, slower speeds should be all

Similar to 4/4 , where you tap on 1 and 3, but the strongest beat is 1. You tap on 1 and 4, but the strongest beat is 1 or else you would just be playing 3/4.
