    Mr. Hoffman, I love this lesson very much. May I ask you a question? How could I know the next speed from 116 – 120 beats per minute then what would be the next until I can play the full speed of it?
    Thanks a lot!

      Thank you! You can just keep increasing the speed 4-5 bpm at a time until you’re playing at full speed. I hope that answered your question,

    Hi Mr. Hoffman. I’m enjoying your lessons very much.
    I have a question: is there a difference between a tenuto and an accent (the > symbol) ?

      Hi! Yes, there is a slight difference. A tenuto means that you should hold the note for its full length. An accent means that the note should be played loudly at first and then taper off quickly. I hope that makes sense!

    No offense ,Mr Hoffman, but you’re going a little fast. I am unable to learn the song properly

      I’m sorry if I’m going too fast. If you want to slow the video down, you can always change the settings on the YouTube player. Just click on the gear symbol on the bottom of the video, then go up to click where it says “speed” and you’ll be able to choose from several different options. If you don’t see the gear symbol, try watching the video on our YouTube Channel and it should let you change the settings. I hope that helps!

    Thank god oh know how to play it but did you upload level 6 of fur Elise and when are you uploading the video if you didn’t do it

      We haven’t uploaded the Level 6 video yet because we ran into a roadblock and decided to prioritize our core curriculum instead. We won’t forget about it, but it will probably be a few months.

    How can i get the sheet music for unit 9?

      If you have a premium membership, you can go to any video in unit 9 and click where it says “Next Activity” which will take you to the corresponding practice session. There, it will let you download materials used in that practice session. We’re still working on finalizing the complete unit 9 materials though, so they aren’t available for separate purchase yet.

          The unit 9 complete materials should be available within about two weeks.

    No offense Mr. Hoffman but your LH finger 5 was bent back when ever you played the V7 chord with it
