However you handle this, I would wait until the close of the semester. You want this professor to continue to give you her all, and the likelihood is that she no longer will once you tell her.

Thank you all for your responses. I haven't yet started my lessons but I thought if this was some new method that it may be worth discussing with my teacher. I am not worried about transposing and such as of yet, I just didn't want to learn the tradi

Use of any grading system, whether it be a book or a website, will have its own built-in system, which will not be the same as other grading systems. For instance, a '5' in one will not equate to a '5' in another. If you use one, see how what you p

Hi Nikolas, Thank you for your positive comments. I'm very glad you liked this piece. You laid down a challenge without really trying to and I couldn't leave it alone. I will work on cleaning up the score. I usually find all kinds of issues when I w

Ok, thanks, you both, that makes sense. Indeed, a large part of my problem with these ornaments seems to be that I don't have a good rhythmic image of them. I think my first step will be to write out the whole measure by giving the ornaments real no

If you are currently taking piano lessons, just keep doing that and stay away from all those "Instant" methods on the internet. All most of that stuff amounts to is bits and pieces of how music works and is designed to get you to give some

Pricing varies by how many credits you purchase at a time. I don't have my iPad so I can't check them. I think 1000 for $75 was the best deal with higher prices for smaller increments.

Two quick things but more for late intermediate / advanced players. 1) The ability to change articulation, interpretation quickly is a necessity. Once a piece is learned in should not be written in stone but be somehow more fluid like a river in its

Classic or jazz? Jazz: close to the strings. Classic: depends on the piece and the room acoustics. Generally, far enough to get rid of most noise from action and pedaling. Amount of acoustics from the room then determine the rest. Typically at lea

I haven't watched the video, but from the description it sounds to me like something that is best left alone for now. Transposing because a singer may need a different key only happens if you frequently accompany singers. Most pianists won't ever enc

For your first few pieces with grace notes and ornaments it will help a lot to figure out what rhythm you want to have for the ornament. Which notes fall on the beat, which before or after, whether they resemble 8th notes or 16ths or what, and how th
