I looked at the pedaling videos and liked them; though found it extremely odd that he would write out all the toe and heel markings for each note :shock: The most I would do is a difficult "run" or jump or something, but no way I'm going to write it all down. There is no need to, because if you are playing pieces in your "range", then the pedal will work itself out if you have already developed a good technique, from previous pieces and patterns. In my (unprofesional) opinion, we need to work harder on sight reading skills. Develop that, and everything falls into line.
