My son, Ryan, would like you to know he loves learning the piano and he is “the master of it”.
That’s great! I’m so glad he’s enjoying the piano and that he’s feeling confident in his mastery of the instrument. 🙂
i love this this is Bret’s message
Thanks! I’m glad you like it!
what is the name of the song?
Are you talking about the song that we’re learning in this lesson, or the song that you hear at the beginning and end of the video? The name of the song that you’re learning is “D Journey” and the song that I’m playing at the beginning of the video is “All of Me” by John Schmidt. Does that answer your question, or were you talking about a different song?
Great , really great , so appreciate his method
I played piano years ago I picked up up and started your course
That’s great! We’re so glad to have you learning with us!
Is it ok to have a 49-key keyboard?
Yes, using a keyboard with 49 keys is just fine! If you’re using a keyboard with less than 61 keys, you may need to make a few adjustments to some of the songs and exercises used in the lessons, but other than that it shouldn’t make too much of a difference.
How should I practice “D Journey” with a 61-key keyboard? I don’t have 4 D’s for my right hand…
That’s a good question! For this song, you don’t necessarily need to start on the same D that I start on in the video. I would suggest starting on a lower D, which should give you enough space to play the whole song. I hope that helps! Good luck and happy playing!
No surprise at the end
Yeah there was no surprise.😕Maybe it’s only on some of them.
No surprise at the end…:(
Sometimes even puppets need a vacation! 🙂
Where did they go?
I agree with Kimberly that it would be nice to have a practice session for this video.
While the materials and the audio are available, and maybe not finding them was the issue there, it’s great to have that few steps worth of instructions to follow. For example, read the instructions on the D Journey Music Sheet, play this 5x. Having had a look through the materials I see that for each lesson that there is a second video there is no “practice session” so maybe there’s a good reason as to why there aren’t those for multi-part video lessons.
While that might seem fairly basic to where its not been included already, I for one feel lost when it comes to what to practice and this would help alleviate this for me. It would also give the sense of “this is what you need to do to practice this” to my 5 year old, without me having to impose that on them.
We were not sure if there needed to be more than one practice session for multi-part lessons, but it sounds like it would be very helpful for students to have the second practice session. We will definitely take this into account for future improvements to our program. Thank you so much for your valuable feedback!
It would be really useful to have a practice session for this video. Possibly with the track for playing D Journey, so that we don’t have to search through the video and then rewind to practice again.
