MP3s?Posted in CategoryLesson Q&A

Hi, I'm new here and so far so good. Would like to make the suggestion/request that there be MP3s associated with at least the beginner and advanced courses. The MP3s would play the piano notes for the exercises the instructors give. This would make it much easier to practice between lessons. Anyone else think so? Are they here and I don't know? Any other website for such downloads?

Hi Olivia. At the moment we don't have any downloadable materials, but this could be fun to add in the future. This is a great idea and I'll pass it along to the rest of the team!

Exactly what I thought! No one wants to hear me sing, so the only place I can do it is in my car. So sound files are an absolut must, in my opinion.
Please make them available!

Hi Olivia and Henning!
We really appreciate your feedback and want to do our best to make you happy! Can you let us know if you prefer MP3 files for entire lessons? Or were you more interested in having MP3 files for just the instrumental on warmups so you have something to practice with? Any little piece of feedback helps!

It would be great to include all of the “warmups” in this format. If we’re short on time, and want to get our practice in, we can just jump right in. It is helpful for you to talk through each warm-up so we know which warmup we are about to do.
One way you could do it is to make one mp3 file that has an entire warmup session.
Another way you could do it is to break each warmup exercise into its own mp3 file and we can pick the specific exercises we want to work on.
It would be awesome if you could make this available through either iTunes, Apple Music or even as a podcast.

Hello, thank you all!
The classes I've taken so far give exercises using intervals. So, most helpful so far would be mp3s that are labelled as 1-3-1 or 1-3-5-3-1 for example, going up and down an octave.
You may consider adding them as downloads or low data streams with the courses and grouping them based on whether middle C, a lower note or higher for the start note.
Another helpful option would be to post warm ups with the courses that are labelled with whatever sound/vocalization we're to use. These could be unlocked after completing a certain number of classes or made into an app.

Hi Susana and Olivia - great suggestions for the mp3 warmups. We're constantly looking to improve the site and add features that will enhance your learning experience with us! This was really great. Thanks again!
