I am also making videos of me learning and talking about these pieces as I go and you can check out the full series here:

Nice things cost money

Published on Jan 2, 2020

A little bit of a rant in today's episode over an message I received about the site. Most of people don't realize what goes into building and maintaining an application like this one and that's ok but I'd like my voice to be heard and the reasons behind our pricing model which is more than fair in my opinion. How much do you charge for your work? This site provides immense value to me first of all and I know some of you use it on daily basis and draw inspiration for your teaching and performances.

Also, happy new year and tune in for more amazing content coming your way this year!

What comes first? Music or technique?

Published on Nov 9, 2017

I have been thinking about this concept lately. If you understand the score/music and have a clear idea on how you want to play a piece, shouldn't the technique kind of follow/fall into place by itself?
