Playground Sessions for iPad Version 2.0

Hello Everyone!

Today we’re excited to announce a big update to our iPad app: it now supports videos!!

This is a huge step forward in bringing big features and functionality to tablet versions of Playground Sessions.

Along with this, we’ve also added some huge improvements, including the ability to play Playground’s interactive sheet music lessons using the app’s on-screen keyboard instead of a physical keyboard.

Playground Forum

At Playground Sessions, our goal is to not only teach the world how to play the piano, but to also create a strong and supportive community of piano players!  We understand how valuable a support system can be when learning how to play a new instrument so we’ve created a forum that will allow you to easily interact with other users, suggest feature additions, and request your favorite songs to be added to our library! Create a free account on our forum and join our piano community today at www.playgroundsessions.com/forums!

Practice Exercises

We’re happy to announce that we’ve added practice exercises to our Rookie Tour (Bootcamp)! You’ll notice a few changes in the order of some of the videos, but more importantly you’ll notice supplementary exercises to help drive home the concepts taught in the videos. These exercises give you a hands-on approach that will allow you to retain the information from the videos a lot easier. Keep an eye out for more feature updates!
