Do you think it needs a facelift to be more attractive to today’s savvy tech users? I personally do judge a book by its cover and appreciate a nice user interface.

For me personally it is perfect as it is, clear and uncluttered. I think what you've read was from earlier, when they had in PM an ugly wallpaper background. For me, the interface doesn't matter much, rather a program that works perfectly, than a flashy interface and lots of bugs and errors. Finally, most of the time you just look at a white sheet with notes, the rest is no longer important. wink

In fact, since I started with PM in Feb 2018, I think the UI has improved. For example, the library interface is so much better now, than it was back then.

I compare the PM interface with Playground Sessions which looks prettier. But actually I think the functionality in PM is so much better, so sometimes a more attractive interface doesn't mean that much.

Hey Sarah65, where did you see this? Is there an update blog or something I'm not aware of?

I'm new here, just want to say hello to all PM users. I was looking (just a curiosity) on the Internet for someone, who completed 100% of PM and I have found this forum as well.
So, hello everyone smile

Hello and welcome. Have you found someone with 100% on everything? I do wonder what level you are in now. wink

Of the ones posting regularly on PW, I think akc42 might be furthest along. He stopped somewhere in Level 6.

Hi, I was just wondering what is the real effectiveness of PM. The perfect example would be someone with no skills, who completed 100% PM. As I said it's just a curiosity, cause at the end of the day I'm testing it on myself.

I’ve been using piano marvel on the iPad and the beta app is MUCH improved. I really like the form of the iPad as it is much more like sheet music than a laptop or pc monitor.

Secondly, how much time did it take you to complete the 4-2 technique exercise - 2 octaves with both hands simultaneously?!? I can do individual hands without issue. As soon as I try both together, my head explodes. Is it just me? Any tips besides building up muscle memory? Am I approaching it wrong? It’s balancing the different fingering patterns across both hands. 1 octave was pretty doable. The second octave with the 3/4/3/5 crossover pattern is making me crazy.

My Skype teacher said his father completed everything with 100%. I think he said his father was 70.

I have 8 years until I'm 70 but some mornings it seems overly ambitious...

I'm not sure which Technique exercise you are talking about. But so far the most difficult scale for me was the Bb scale.
It's the Technique: 4E level, 1st exercise. The challenge is that you have to start with different fingers of both hands, so coordination is the key.
It took me few weeks (up to 30 mins. a day) to complete Bb technique 1-4 (up to half combo) and Bb Method songs ("Turkey in the straw" was the last one).
So far my general and the most important conclusion about learning to play piano is: if you can't do it right 3 times in a row, you have to SLOW DOWN.
PM is teaching me patience. The further I go, the more I like to practice, and that is my second advice: learn to enjoy practice.

Sometimes I find that if I'm "stuck" on one exercise, I will get very frustrated and want to bang hard on my piano in anger. I realize that in such circumstances, I really have to just leave it, move on to the next exercise or work on other pieces, then come back on another day. When I do this, that piece I got stuck on somehow "unsticks" itself. And life is much better.

I particularly do not like the ear training exercises in Technique, nor the Flash Cards. They frustrate me to no end. But no pain, no gain I guess.

Or maybe I just need anger management lessons LOL.

That's all right. Does your skype teacher like Piano Marvel? Can you recommend a lessons provided through the skype? Are they effective?

Don't let me start talking about my anger smile But as I said, I'm learning not only to play piano but also a little bit about myself, my limitations, lack of patience. I like the 'computer game' style of PM with all the rewards and percents.
The satisfaction after completing a difficult piece is very much real and proves that I'm stronger than my demons laugh
