Robin,

Thanks for the response.

If, for example, my long-term objective was Jazz, what other material would you recommend to explore?

Psalm,

For jazz, i wrote an article on my site here with some starting advice/free lessons for Jazz Piano:

http://www.lessonrating.com/piano-library-online-jazz-piano-lessons.html

I really recommend the book listed on that page called The Jazz Piano Book by Mark Levine. I've used it for years and personally think it's the best book out there for learning Jazz Piano.

I'd be happy to provide more resources/recommendations for you if you need just let me know. I have limited response time on the board today but will check back in over the weekend...

I'm tempted. I've tended to fight shy of down loadable stuff, partly because this PC is beginning to creak and partly because I am a 'book' person. I'm enjoying the classical approach I'm taking but I am now considering expanding my horizons. Maybe it's the pull of the spring tide having an effect.

I am pretty sure that Robin will send it to you on CD if you ask. You can also copy the files to a usb stick or disk-cd until your cd comes in the mail.

If your version gets lost and you're on record as a customer, couldn't you just ask to download it again?

You already have the sunny beach(Blackpool) and a piano, the Kawaigirl just amounts to greed laugh

This thread has sparked my interest, would this course supplement other methods of learning?

Dave, I'm very new, and I'm using PianoForAll in conjunction with Alfred's. PFA seems to have an approach I understand and can relate to. That proverbial light flips on ALOT more often with PFA than with any other method I've tried (and I'm obsessive -- I'll try anything and everything once).

However, I'll keep going through Alfred's 1-3 because it makes a good reference, and it supplements PFA (as opposed to the other way around).

Good luck...

OH c'mon Lee I spent many days as a kid at Blackpool on the sunny beach albeit liquid sunshine, riding them donkeys. Come to think of it as a teenager I spent a few hours in Yate's wine lodge too, the lummies have a special effect after a visitation laugh sorry to digress from topic, just a middle age man reminiscing

Maybe my choice of words were lacking, I think maybe I should have said in conjunction with Alfred's as they are probably both a stand alone course and not supplemental

Hi Dale, Looking at the order options it does say a CD is available after an order has been placed.I thought a few weeks ago I would need to have windows re-installed but fortunately the problem was found and such drastic measures were not required. USB storage is probably the best solution, though I would hope that Gnu is correct and once one has purchased the files they remain available for download.

Sundew, when you purchase PianoforAll Robin will send you a link to download the files. I downloaded all the files to my laptop and burned them onto a DVD as back up as I was installing a fresh version of Vista.

When I reinstalled and got the system up and running again, I went back to my mailbox, clicked on the link Robin provided and was able to access all the files again for download.

The lessons and video material are very good and although I don't spend every day of piano time with them I am awaiting the purchaser of a new printer to print the sections into booklets.

That's what I did was print them out. I just printed out the first two books right now though, once I'm done I'll do the others, it just makes more sense then having your computer on and having to look to the side at the screen all the time


In space, no one can hear me sing!

I am probably going to check this course out more when I return from vacation, the first sentence on the page "the secret" at PFA site got my attention.
