I can already play Intermediate - Advanced music from the score. Why should I to go back to simple melodies?
You can use the Tools with any music you choose. As an Advanced player, I still use these exact Tools for memorising complex music. My skills, technique and confidence have benefitted immeasurably from a regular, parallel practice of much simpler music.
This course invites you to explore simpler music to build confidence quickly and easily, in parallel to any other music you may be enjoying. Every second spent paying more, detailed attention to musical sounds will 'rub off' on more complex repertoire. You can select music that meets you where you are.
Can't I just use aural tests and apps?
You may well still wish to use these, but are the Tools that empower you to excel at them built in? They can be helpful for testing/measuring your aural skills, but how do you build these in the first place?
Piano Portals offers ideas - fresh, transformational ideas for bursting through ceilings in your playing and listening skills. The Tools from the online courses embolden you to shine in aural tests and apps as well as playing your chosen music by ear.
