I learned a lot in this one!
Good course
I learned a lot.
I enjoyed this one
I enjoyed this lesson, as I like this key. It can be jazzy, but it's also melancholy. I had fun improvising on the chord progressions, and even on the Long Ago song. I could play it in the swing style, but I also came up with my own classical music version, in kind of a sad waltz. It was very nice! Had fun. Through this fun I could pick up the chords and progressions, including some new chords, the D and A diminished.
Inspiring
I enjoyed learning how simple concepts can sound really cool. When comparing this course with the first course at Level 1, I recognize the progress made learning to play piano. This course inspires me to continue practicing.
Fun and exciting
Jonny and Yannick you are great instructors
