    Greets!

    Anyone have thoughts on this. Iam trying to teach myself some piano song by watching posted youtube videos. I find I have to restart over and over and pause the video. It would work much better with an extra hand! Is anyone aware of a program which will loop certain sections of a video over and over? Is there such a thing as a foot switch for ipad that I could use to pause?

    Thoughts?

    A good option is to use watchlater or playtube to download the videos so that you can watch from your ipad without using the internet.
    That should make your user experience a little more responsive.
    But in regards to learning to play the piano on the ipad by watching videos, I think you should invest in a physical media, be it a midi keyboard with weighted keys or a nice synthesizer with weighted keys. It's one thing to tell the brain what to do. But it's quite a bit harder to get the muscles to listen to what the brain wants to do.
    Either way it could be fun learning on the ipad.

    Thanks for the reply. I do have a keyboard. A nice Kurzweil pc3 le8. I wanted to learn on the keyboard whilst watching the tutorial.
