We Currently have four Topics: Chords, Tunes, Improv, and General as shown below. Each topic has tracks and lessons of a specific kind of playing. You can choose which topic to view by clicking on its radio button
Each Topic contains a number of Tracks, or sets of lessons that build upon one another, typically teaching a certain aspect of playing. A sample track consisting of 4 lessons is shown below. Notice that each track starts with a colored arrow containing the track title. Then there are a number of gray arrows containing the lesson for the track. At the end of the track is a red arrow indicating the end of the track, and a green "NEXT" arrow which indicates the track or tracks that would be appropriate for you to learn next after the completion of this current track.
Completed TRACK 1
You manage your working tracks by clicking on the checkbox to the left of the track. When checked, you have indicated that you are working on the track. A checked track will appear in your Student Track View ready for you to work on it. One track from each topic is typically what you should be tackling.
In a similar manner, you indicate which lessons you are working on by clicking on the star that is on the left side of the lesson's arrow. Set the star to blue for lessons you have completed, green for lessons you are working on, and gray for lessons you have not yet started.
You should work through a track, one lesson at a time, until the completion of the track. The lessons will increase in difficulty through the track, building on the previous lessons. There is an exception to this rule, and that is Tunes. You need not work through the entire track at one time, but instead can move to another tune track at any time. You may want to return later for some more difficult tunes in the track.
You work on a lesson by clicking on the lesson title to bring up a Lesson Window that includes the video for the lesson as well as instructions, music sheets, and other pertinent information for the lesson. The video can easily be expanded to full screen and the lesson sheets printed to bring to your piano.
We suggest you choose one track from each of the four topics and work on a lesson from each of the tracks each time you sit down to take some lessons.
We have set your initial Tracks and Lessons with a recommended set for starters. You can start from here and proceed.
