Hallo, I started with Alfred. Good method but no immediate feedback. Now I'm using Piano Marvel since 3 mounths. Very interesting and exciting. No, boring, very progressive. I play on Kaway CA15 and I'm on it every free moment (my wife hates it),

The problem I have with tuning all the "A" notes by ear is that I can't do that without using other notes as a reference. In other words, when tuning by ear, the stretch develops as I tune the piano. Stretch is not pre conceived. Even roo

I think 'stage fright' is a bit of a misnomer for this, to me it's more 'distracted playing'. Having someone watch or listen means my mind is wondering what they think, when I need all my focus on my playing. A simple solution is to to add distract
