Default I want to learn the Piano...

I cant take it anymore.... I want to play beautiful music whit my piano, but i cant play It really pains me to listen to Beethoven, Chopin or even Glass, wanting to play those beautiful melodies for myself and just failling because i have no training.

Does anyone know a free piano learning site that works well?

piano is an instrument I wouldn't really advise you to take up all by yourself - invest in some classes. practicing with a teacher is the best you can do! only later, when you feel brave enough, I'd recommend venturing on your own.

if you're short on time, 45min once a week will do just fine - as long as you're self-disciplined and practice at home over and over again

A teacher would help alot

I have this portable grand piano that has a learning softare in it. It shows what keys to press for songs in it's memory. I learned the easy part of ''for elise'', but then the difficulty jumped and i was like a deer looking at headlights

I tried to do the hard part but i just coudnt do it... My fingers are just to slow and clumsy. I want someone to teach me finger work (haha) ...or w/e its called :P

well, if you end up getting classes, there's 3 things you usually learn/practice

- dexterity (comes with practice)
- theory
- reading

so, even though dexterity and theory are better left for classes, you can start learning how to read right now - there's lots of info on the web! that's something I'd advise you to do - I didn't...so I'm learning now :/

piano is fairly easy to learn, if you know the requirements and such. But once you start, the only thing left is getting better and i suppose you'll be fine after that.

You do not necessarily need lessons. Or have to read music well or at all. I tought myself a few years ago and i am good enough to jam with a drummer, another pianist, and guitarist. All you have to do is get a nice keyboard that you wont get board with, lock yourself in the room with it and play. And in time much good will come out of it.
