I think my (newish) teacher is somewhat more lenient than I am with myself. smile I want to get to a place with a piece where I don't play wrong notes, the rhythm is correct, the dynamics are appropriate and it sounds like music. This doesn't mean perfection or anything, but it definitely means non-sloppy and that I have learned the piece. Some pieces I will linger on because I like them - At Last was one.

And Laura will be another one. I'm still unraveling all the threads of this one, and still have a few trouble spots, but it's getting there.

Also started working on Chattanooga Choo Choo, which is going to be fun. I found it amusing that my piano teacher didn't know this piece at all - she's a lot younger than I am. I found a youtube of the original Glenn Miller version from the movie and sent it to her, great fun. Edited to add: I'm not old enough to have been around when the song was originally recorded, but it was one my parents played. Just to clarify. smile

I used to listen to Glenn Miller when I was a kid, my mother had a cassette tape which I soon confiscated. grin

Did you know that he has recorded a very fine version of Little Brown Jug?

Which reminds me to look for some Glenn Miller piano scores once I get better.

Does anyone have any experience with the iPad version of the Alfred's Self-Teaching Adult Piano Course?

You can preview the course on iTunes (via iBook). Note that the online version of the course consists of 3 parts (part 1 is up to When the Saints Go Marching In).

I did a quick check and found that it includes both the CD and DVD content. Which is great, since you want the DVD.
If you want to check if the contents are the same as the paper version, here's a link to the TOC of the book: TOC (click on the sample page).

So, I've made it to Lavender's Blue and can play all the correct notes. It's not sounding at all musical though so more work is needed. I'm going to need to work out just what the problem is though. This is where a teacher would come in real handy. Darn my musically talented daughter who is sucking up all the lesson money!
