Challenging
Beautiful song, kind of hard for beginner
A real good challenge
I'm still in my first month of PWJ membership, and this challenge really challenged me. It was very humbling, but I got through it and learned a lot. The main lesson for me is to practice well, without making mistakes, by going super slow, first out of time, and then really slow with time, gradually increasing the speed bit by bit. I am not yet able to play this piece, but I made a lot of progress and will keep at it.
Misty Me
Excellent training. There is lot to remember.
Easy to understand
How the song was broken down into its elements.
Very fun to learn such a pretty ballad
A very good challenge. Each week added more difficulty, but with consistent practice am able play this piece better as the weeks go by. Definitely use the smart sheets to help with the timing of the rhythm.
