Not for this adult true beginner!
on May 21, 2013
I have wanted to play the piano for many years now, and as a middle-aged adult was a bit shy about taking lessons, so I thought the solution would be to teach myself at least the basics. I surmised that if I could play a little and read music, I would go into lessons with a teacher with some knowledge. Maybe it is just me, but I thought the lessons were much too difficult and fast-paced for a complete newbie and I put it away. I started lessons with a teacher and I am progressing at a comfortable rate for me. After a few months, I got the "teach yourself to play piano" book and dvd out, and I have still found it to be too much for me. I'm glad that others have found success. I think a one-star rating would be too harsh and if I could, I'd give it a 2.5.
