Very fun, challenging. I learned a lot and am inspired to keep learning more tunes like this.
My first time learning the swing technique - I really like it
I enjoyed learning a cocktail piece that was new to me. I have actually memorized the lyrics.
Very enjoyable
By the end of the challenge I really felt I was making progress. The step by step approach is an excellent way to learn and the content caters for different levels of experience.
Fly Me To The Moon Challenge
The PWJ monthly challenge is an excellent approach to learning a new song. There are three different levels so everyone can participate. The weekly assignments encourages a commitment to complete the components to reach the final goal…which is to learn an entire song at your playing level. Easy to follow and understand. Very rewarding experience.
Fly Me To The Moon Monthly Challenge
This course was a fun way to explore how to jazz up rhythms, make harmonies more interesting, and study the “walking base” structure.
