Got 100% on Canon in C today. smile

But it’s not over yet. There were still a couple of red notes and to be honest, I really enjoy this piece and I’ll be happy to keep practicing it.
It’s funny how initially it seemed impossible but now I can play it 30 seconds quicker than the target time and I’m now having to try and slow it down at certain parts for the ‘access' mode.

I’ve put so much time into this piece that I'm now intrigued to see how far I can take it. I’m comfortable enough to be able to think ahead but now I’m wondering if it’s possible for me to play it without looking at my hands. I feel that I can learn more by sticking with this piece rather than moving on.

This is definitely a major landmark in the PM exercises and I think that they timed it perfectly.

Well done!

I'm following some way behind you. I loved the simple version of Canon in C (Level 3?) and now I am tackling the one which was song of the week recently (Level 4?) where your left hand move around a lot more. The pleasures of level 5 are still beyond me but I shall look forward to them -probably some time next year at this rate. I have just completed level 3 technique and method so I am having a little break enjoying trying new pieces from the Library.

Congratulations treefrog. Do you think I could handle that canon in C? I kinda gave up on level 4 because I didn't find it that interesting anymore, and you have to play way too fast. In the meantime I've learned a lot of other songs from the library...I think I'll give it a try smile

If I can do it, you can.

If you persevere and you enjoy learning this piece as much as I have, I’m sure that you will be able to do it.

Yes, it does seem fast at first, especially the sections with arpeggios in the left hand, but you soon realise that this is the speed that it needs to be played and anything slower just wouldn’t sound particularly good. The arpeggios become second nature after a while and although it’s quite a long piece, there is a similar pattern to each section. The tricky bit is being able to transition seamlessly between those sections.

Each of the first 19 exercises in this level took me 1-2 days to master and putting all of those sections together for the whole piece has taken a few weeks. So all in all it’s taken quite a while to master but it’s been worth it.

After getting 100% I might have gone on to the next exercise if it wasn’t for the fact that I really enjoy playing this piece and every day I can play it a little smoother so now I’m just going to carry on adding expression to it for a while before I move on.

I highly recommend that you give it a try. Of all of the pieces I’ve learnt on my PM journey this was the hardest but it is by far my biggest achievement.

Treefrog, that is a HUGE achievement. That piece is by far the hardest I have encountered in PM. You may find the rest a little easier to master after Canon in C

Nope, no issues with it at all.
Took lessons from 1960 to 1969, stopped at age 16.
Started again in July 2020 at age 67. Lots more fun now!

Just felt like sharing here. There's this new scales and arpeggio ninja challenge which I checked out. Pro scales were simply too hard for me, but I managed to 100% a C major pro arpeggio. You need to do 4 octaves up and down under 3 seconds without missing a note, and I got it after a lot of tries. I'm super excited!

I get you excitement - I started on the Tarantella song of the week about 10 days ago and at first I couldn't believe that I'd ever manage it in the time allowed - the first time I got all the notes right it took over 100 seconds and the timing is about 42. I finally got the piece done in that kind of time but was stumped by the final speedy arpeggio. After endless practice I finally made it and got 100% for the piece. I feel a huge sense of achievement. Mind youI think I've played it over 200 times now ;-)

I’ve just installed the app to try this out.

On the sight reading exercises, how do you unlock the next one? It’s saying 100% with the first one but not allowing me to look at the next one.- thanks

Maybe because you can only play a limited number of songs during the trial period? Or have you already paid?

"Is that Liszt - Tarantella?"

Not sure - it just says Aaron Garner - i presume that's because he has arranged it?

I just looked up the Liszt Tarantella and I now feel totally inadequate ;-)

He plays it rather faster than I do!

Mind you I have managed it at 140 (the default)
