  1. Practice log question.  I am finding it better if I not directly onto the practice log as I practice.  Is there a way to save this draft without posting it if I have to stop and answer the door like I did today? When I came back my page was gone and when I went back to it, I had to start all over.  If I need to post and edit when I’m done that’s fine, just wondered if I missed a save button. Thanks

  6. Hi. 
    I joined PWJ a couple of weeks ago. I watched the introductory videos and believe I am around level two… Beginner/intermediate. I also took part in the first session of Go Tell It On the Mountain. .. which I truly enjoyed. 
    I though that would be a good place to begin.

    I have listened to Jonny’s lessons about practice... and think I am on the correct track. 
    First I do technique and theory (Scales, 7th chords & extension),
    Then, the piece I chose to work on: Go Tell It On The Mountain using the live lesson presentation... Lessons 1-8

    My problem or question:🤔
    When I sign on, I get this message in the bottom right hand corner

    “It looks like you have no open course activity. Start a new course today”.   it also says I have not completed any lessons or exercises etc...


    I’m obviously not doing something I should be doing.
    I’m not the most tech-savvy person.


    Any ideas/suggestions? I always feel that I’m starting from scratch and there is no record of my work or progress except in my own mind and notes I take. 


    Thank you, Pete

  12. Hi, Katie -- 

    I just got an email about a Holiday Special, which said 

    For annual members that have signed up in the last 5 months, please contact us if you want to extend your plan.
    This offer lasts until Nov. 30th at 11:59 PST.
     
    I tried clicking on contact us, but didn't seem to get anywhere. Would someone please email  or chat, because I'm probably in that category, having gotten the annual membership in July for $260.88.
     
    What's the new Holiday Special rate, and can I get in on it?
     
    Thanks!

    PS -- I've been learning Jonny's Summertime arrangement. Love it.
