i usually do that when learning an instrument. i wait till there is nobody home, i bring out my guitar and i play till my heart can take no more. same as piano. plug her in, play it loud and let everyone here your skillfulness in learning.

Find a teacher nearby-you only need 30 minutes with the teach then after that you have to keep a constant playing recored during the week when you aren't with them-start at thirty minutes and go up-I would learn piano except that I'm a devoted bassoonist playing an hour and a half a day now.
My recommendation is get a teach. Godspeed.

I have a keyboard that I can hook up to my computer and it teaches you how to play and read the notes. However I wouldn't suggest it over a teacher. Considering i've had it for years and am barely apt at the piano (of course I rarely use that program though).

Of course it can't be compared to a good teacher! Machines will never replace us!

thanks Setekh...hadn't thought about trying to learn to read music using this keyboard rather than a piano
My resolution for the new year is to learn to play the piano...I aspire to Glenn Gould but a girl must dream...she must also cut her nails boo hoo for as my piano teacher said, "if Bach had intended a percussion accompaniment he would have written it" tx

Does anyone know a free piano learning site that works well?
Ok I hope I'm ot to late. You defiately do not need a piano teacher. with any instrement, all you need are the basic principles on how to play correctly. Likewise, with piano as long as you know a few things you can do what you will and become as good as any of us. When you play piano, you know how theirs little numbers above the notes? above all, you need to learn how to read finger numbers. It will help you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much. Basically if you lay your right hand face down, it will go (left to right) 1 2 3 4 5. Put your fingers in those spots and your set. The only other thing is learning how to practice something. The way you do that is extremely simple. say something is straight 8th notes. You practice it as if it was swung, only to an extreme. short loong short long. then looong short, you get the idea. practice that evenly and it makes life e z p z. hope that helps T_T

You have to stick with it. Alot of people i know just quit because they didn't think they were learning anything. I've played for 8 years and i'm still taking lessons and still learning more, though, so I do suggest lessons.
