Hi all ..i recently purchased a couple of tutor books ..so that i could set myself a stable practice regime and i follow it strictly even if i know certain areas ,,but i get all these little short pieces that i hav never heard b4...but they are obviously use ful exercises ,so not knowing the melody im not sure i am playing correctly for full benefit ...normally u would be with a tutor who would play the tune then u would hav an idea what to play ..also save time ...i know u should follow time sigs and tht which i do ..but still not sure if right ...so i downloaded FINALE 2009 DEMO for free 30 days and i copied these little ditties over to finale score as they are written in book precisely ..which was a lot simpler thn i thought ...and i had my digital playback ..which helped me so much in progressing through the songs so b4 i learn these pieces i copy over to finale thn listen and thn learn and found it also gd for reading as u are copying over you scrutinise so u dont make mistakes on notes and time signatures e.t.c so all in all i will purchase it now as i would not be without it ..i hope this will help some others that had the same problem as me ..ps it is under 10 dollars to buy and i think it priceless in the help it will give you just to learn ...there are a lot more uses it has but this is my reason for it ..atm ..SO THERE !!! LOL...Smile www.finalemusic.com please let me know of other uses if u hav any ..other thn composing cya later Smile)

That's pretty good. Although, I usually use youtube when I want to learn a song, but I'm not sure how the song goes =)

Very good! Smile Its a nice tool! When the trail is up you should download a program called MuseScore! Its 10x better than Finale, its a Littlebit harder to learn how to use, but when you have learned it its 10x easier and faster to use, at least I feel so... And the complete program is FREE! Smile

Haha!
That's awesome.
You could learn the music, listen to it, and get familiarized with it.
Good technique.

hi doburu and welcome to our forum ..i also break the pieces down into two parts ..bass and treble and listen and practise hands seperately ..i find it very gd for harder parts to do this ..so in effect i have 3 parts to the same piece ie: left hand right hand and then both ..and not forgetting you can adjust the tempo of each piece to suit your needs ,but as you say you are also getting familliar with notation and other elements while writing them into the sheet Smile
