Amber viewed the lessons on her iPad mini. She could very easily take it to the piano with her & speed up, slow down, or pause the video whenever she needed to. This allowed her to play while her lesson was going on or right after the lesson. She also used the iPad to view some of the sheet music, but other pieces she wanted to print.
Learning How to Improvise was a very good place for Amber to start. These lessons are giving her something she isn't learning by going through traditional piano lesson books. They are challenging her in a different way. The program itself has been very easy for Amber to use. The getting started videos really help you to understand how to use the website and figure out where you need to be.
Willie Myette learned to play piano by learning to play chords & scales first. He then learned as much as he could from books and taught himself how to improvise. At age 16 he realized he had a love for teaching and published a dozen music books and developed PianoWithWillie.
