It's easy to play badly. Not at all easy, to play it well.

. . . So smooth, so simple -- what could be hard?<G>

I tried it, coming back to piano after a long, long absence. Decided I wasn't ready.

I'm still not ready.

Jane is excellent!! She has SO many videos, she's always my first go to, to make sure my timing is right or to look ahead at potential fingering issues.

Her videos are good, I agree, although a little mechanical. For fingering or questions like I had above, though, they work well.

How exactly are Jane tutorials useful ? If you want to try and play this piece you should be able to work out the notes without such videos. I found that it was very painful to watch. I would definitely not trust her for fingers suggestions !

If you are referring to her "tutorial" on Clair de lune, I agree that it was painful to watch. How is this video even considered a tutorial? There was no discussion, no explanation, no insight given into interpretation; just a very slow, note-for-note, expressionless, one-dynamic run-through of the score with the occasional tempo inaccuracy.

I can't imagine anyone finding this particularly useful.

I think the videos are meant for those who don't read notes at all or not well. Also, for those without fingered scores or those who can't use fingered scores.

Why not used a fingered score?

The point of the video is for fingering and slooooow play tempo. I find it very useful to check in when I have done my first draft of fingerings and her Bach’s are great to learn about trills.
Fingers scores are assuming everyone has same hand span. I will try them, but will revise to fit my hand span.
Everyone to their own in learning. This is sharing in case other people might find it useful.

Agreed. Fingering and rhythm (she's very solid with metronome) are what I use them for, if I'm between lessons and just need a quick check. They are very mechanical, so that's kind of the nly thing I get out of them. You can pretty much find almost any piece on there, though. Imperssive.

Or for those playing Bach, or other repertoire, that often has crazy weird fingering that many scores don't agree upon. Typos in scores is not an infrequent occurrence. A quick check can often help.

She's also good for hearing complicated rythms and different voices, because she goes very slowly and intentionally.
