I already know. enough venting, more practicing! :P

Leave the method aside for a while, and play pieces from the library that are slightly above your level and that you like to hear. That way you can enjoy the piano again and learn something from it. Then when you go back to method you will be amazed how much better it goes.

Get the free trial, jump into about 4C or so and see if it challenges you. If it doesn't, you haven't lost anything to try it.


Casio PX-S3000
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!

Yes you can have PDF if it is present. All copywright music has no pdf. But all the classics have.

If 99% is possible then 100% is also possible, come on you can do it!

My impressions!
very fast support. I discovered wrong hand position in Gymnopedie 1 by Satie
Took a few hours, now it's corrected, amazing.
I like pianomarvel a lot so far.
have anyone tried to make a request for a score?


I play piano, bansuri flute, guitars and compose meditative relaxing music! :-)

I have never hit 99%, but I base my practice on how long it takes me to get there. If I can get 90% after 2 run-throughs on a lesson, I don't practice it 10 more times to get a 99%, I just move on to a harder lesson. Canon was a hard one!

I haven’t requested a score but I agree with you about the support.

I have contacted them twice in the past and they resolved my problems within 20 minutes.

Which usually happens on the second attempt on the following day.

I very rarely attempt a 100% score on the same day that I get 99% as I know that it will be a lot easier tomorrow smile

I finally completed 'Missing You' yesterday. I got 100% on Sunday but was determined to eliminate all red notes.
It was quite a long piece and as I'd approach the ending my nerves would be shot to pieces.

It depends on which score you request, if it is something contemporary there is a good chance that it is copywrighted and then they have to ask for permission and stuff, so administration takes a little longer. And sometimes they don't get permission. Classical, Beethoven Mozart, etc. are usually on after a day or two.

Thank you Sarah!
good to know :-)
For me personally it's classical music I would try to request. But, right now I've found some pieces to practice to. There's so much music to choose from.
I've been working with a minuet by Bach for a month but it goes so slow. I think I need some other similar easier pieces composed during the Baroque period by other composers.
I found one by Ferdinand Beyer I will try out.

Have you already found "BachScholar's" Sight-Reading & Harmony "in the library? That is a very good course to familiarize yourself with baroque music.

Thanks again Sarah! Perfect for me. I bookmarked 3 books from BachScholar the sample exams, Hanon and sight reading & harmony.
Very cool!

It took a total of 8 hours 6 minutes. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to keep this one in my head or not. Thanks for all the advice and encouragement!

I knew, if 99% is there, the 100% will not be long away ... Congratulations, great job!

Does anybody know how to generate report for a particular piece from a library that I am practicing? I would like to see how much time I have spent on it. The 7 day report shows as it says only 7 days and the piece can be spread out across various lines sometimes only with bar numbers.

Consider setting up a Google spreadsheet for tracking practice time. I hate PM's practice mode, so I generally work a piece up from the PDF or the Assess screen (for short pieces). PM only logs my time when I'm actually trying to Assess. Eventually, you'll move on from PM, and it will be helpful to already have a system in place.

Hi do I need to purchase a USB to Lightning adaptor ?
When using a iPad Pro does piano marvel work better using a USB to Lightning adaptor or is it just has good using the Bluetooth connection ?
Thanks
