Some people take years to learn a language, some live in a place where the language is widely spoken and never learn to even properly construct a sentence. But I did it, and I believe so can you.

Pinpin's book was the first such work ever written and published by a Philippine native.

I launched my Piano Coaching Program at skybox2008.com on 15th of February – and since then, our database of available tutorials has reached enormous proportions! 😀. This article is a special one: it’s a Table of Contents (I update it on a weekly basis!), containing the titles to ALL the video and written tutorials that are now LIVE on the Private Members Forum.
Voki also offers a cloud based classroom management and presentation tools that provide teachers and students with: Readily available edtech tools to increase students' levels of engagement, motivation, parcipitation and learning.
This approach was unique in the s, since goofball. Hi guys! I have a big surprise for you – a detailed video tutorial dedicated to Chopin’s Fantaisie-Impromptu in C# Minor, op. posth. 66 (which is a piece for the advanced level, accessible after aprox. years of serious piano practice).
This tutorial is part of my skybox2008.com project Piano Masterpieces – Detailed Video Lessons for All Levels. In case you couldn’t figure out from the graph, both are difficult, but in different ways.
Both have insane writing systems and lots of cultural background to learn, so those basically cancel each other out.
