Playground Sessions 1.5 Released!

Today, the Playground Sessions team is proud to announce the release of Playground Sessions 1.5. This release makes some important improvements on previous versions of Playground Sessions.

What’s New in Playground Sessions 1.5

  • Interactive Tour: This new software tour lets users easily walk through all of the core features in Follow Along, Practice, and Perform modes.
  • Independent volume control: These new controls allow users to independently adjust volume levels for accompaniments, count in, metronome, piano, and videos. Also lets users turn the piano volume off completely so they can use their own instrument speakers instead.

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!
