25/11/20 – The videos for 1.2 of the beta course are now uploaded, so this module is complete.
19/11/20 – I’ve updated 2 lessons in the beta course: Improvise on pentatonic blocks in 1.3 and Improvise on the diatonic blocks in 2.2. I’ve added some useful infographics to help grasp tonal relationships more coherently. This allowed me to tidy up the copy quite a bit too.
16/11/20 – The PDF materials in 1.2 have just undergone another overhaul as I’m preparing to record the videos. I made a couple of new sets of exercises on the major-minor pairs and lots of little tweaks to the copy in other materials for greater clarity.
07/11/20 – The videos for each individual practice item in 1.1 of the beta course are now completed and ready to watch. I recommend that students studying 1.1 move over to the beta course to continue their training and take advantage of the more detailed instructions.
04/11/20 – I’ve now added the How to study and practise tonality video to the beta course.
01/11/20 – I’ve added the video How to approach the PlayPianoFluently course to Level Infinity. This video will be followed up by 2 more looking at how to study and practise rhythm and tonality. The rhythm one is already on the beta course and I’m preparing the tonality; so both should be posted soon.
22/10/20 – I’ve been adjusting the beta course wording to try to make the instruction clearer and more punchy. The self-assessment doc in infinity has a new section that is very useful. I’m planning to make key videos for level infinity that will be the core teachings then to do little demo videos for each of the practice items. This will help to make the videos cleaner and more instructive. When they are complete, the beta course will no longer be beta. The main course and old videos etc. will still be available within an accessible archive. Thanks again for all your reports on how the new materials help. Always feel free to ask about anything you are struggling to grasp: your questions can help us all potentially.
06/10/20 – There are some new practice materials in 1.1 of the beta course based around rhythm, which you might like to take a look at. You might want to wait until the videos are done, of course… Rhythm is an often neglected part of musical practice, when in reality it’s the most important thing. Clear and conscious tonal fluency is actually impossible without rhythmic fluency…
05/10/20 – Redesigned the course interface so that it’s the same as the new course when it arrives, thereby easing the transition. Many thanks for the great feedback on the beta course materials. I will start uploading videos soon.
29/08/20 – beta course workbooks are now complete and can be viewed in the beta course. Feedback on the new PDF materials has been great so I hope these slightly expanded and reworked materials will prove helpful. I will be getting to work on making a video for each individual workbook: that’s a lot of videos so it might take a little while but I’ll upload them gradually.
11/08/20 – added a demonstration video to the 1.1 beta course for Learning the harmonic blocks. This is the first video in the beta course, designed to offer an even clearer sense of how to practise to get the harmonic blocks fully and clearly internalised.
02/08/20 – added a section to Lesson Infinity about how to take 100% responsibility for successful practice.
24/07/20 – added revised Lesson Infinity to the Beta Course.
24-06-20 – added the following to the beta course: LEVEL 1 – MODULE 1 – pedalling; LEVEL 1 – MODULE 2 – improvising on relative major-minor blocks; reading relative major-minor blocks; mapping the butterfly areas of the keyboard
23-06-20 – The reformatted materials are being added to the site gradually. You can take a look at them using the menu item “Beta course”. Currently there is the Concise Model from Module Infinity and the Module 1.1 practice materials. More will be added.
15-06-20 – Added two videos: a coaching session on how to get into the zone before you begin your practice and a short news item.
17-05-20 – Added a download in 1.1 of 12 drum tracks at different tempos to help students play at different speeds and stop defaulting to the same tempo
13-05-20 – Supplementary rhythm exercises added to 1.1
03-05-20 – Added another video answering 3 questions.
06-04-20 – Updated the 4 extra studies in 1.1 and 1.2 using notation that fits each module (i.e. no staff in 1.1) and addressing the way some blocks can have different names or enharmonic spellings.
02-04-20 – New questions video added
17-02-20 – Corrected the error at start of Video from 13th Feb (sorry!) Added new video answering questions. Posted the questions above each video.
25-02-20 – Video added to harmonic block diagrams app
23-02-20 – Added a little app to help with learning the harmonic blocks showing their diagrams in random sequence. Link is in level infinity.
13-02-20 – New questions video added
27-01-20 – New questions video added
20-01-20 – Supplementary studies added to 1.1 and 1.2
13-01-20 – New questions video added
06-01-20 – Added a section to infinity where videos answering students’ questions will be posted regularly. The first one is now there.
10-12-19 – Added a video to infinity talking about practising exactly as instructed
09-10-19 – Added a little video to 1.2 showing how the sustain pedal co-ordinates when you play a new harmonic block.
18-08-19 – Updated 1.2 workbook to help with reading harmonic blocks over the butterfly areas.
14-08-19 – Site update with improved usability.
14-08-19 – New resource added to module 1.2 to help with reading harmonic blocks over the butterfly areas.
08-08-19 – New free video uploaded called “Use Any Fingers” talking about the dangers of finger-pinning and why this common conventional approach is not in line with the flexibility necessary for navigating tonal space over the keyboard map.

REFRESH YOUR PDF BOOKLETS REGULARLY!
To download a workbook, right click the icon (Windows) or Ctrl click (Mac) and select “download link as” or simply click the link and view the PDF in a window in your browser, which usually has a download link. On phones and tablets, tap the link and download the PDF file. I make regular updates and improvements to the materials, so refresh and replace downloaded files frequently and use a screen rather than printing the materials out.
