Being a self taught musician starting at age 62 and now being 71, this course outline for me theth’ gs I need to focus on. I saw myself in many of the examples and shall make steps to improve upon my practice habits. Thank you
In joyed the fact that different instructors gave input. The focus on practicing hands separate.y and finding pieces suitable to my level. I shall do better at finishing pieces that are at my level. I am so encouraged . I was encouraged to use a recording device and a metronome. I love the reference to Quality is more important than quantity..
Inspiring Variety

Very useful!
I have been playing piano for a long time without ever really mastering the fundamentals. I thought this course may be a little too basic for me, but I am pleased to have been proved wrong. I find the most useful suggestions for improving my piano skills are those that take an approach that would never occur to me, and this course has many such offerings. It was time well spent!
So Important
So many great tips and pointers about practising. Such good advice about where to put your effort and how to manage it.
