Bruno Monsaingeon – Fascination and Confidence
After his films about greats like Glenn Gould, Yehudi Menuhin, Sviatoslav Richter and many others, films in which he exposes the soul of those artists with great empathy, Bruno Monsaingeon himself is quasi a legend.

If you start from nothing, and you need a method, I recommand you the Michael Aaron method. It is effective, you can progress quick - if you practice well - and it does not have the problems of other methods (fingerings all over that stop you from learning the notes, hand position oriented approach to the piano that destroys a good understanding of music reading...).

Look at Alfred's Adult basic book. Try to find a teacher as soon as you can, it is near impossible to make progress with out a teacher. Are you near a college? You could find a student to teach you for near to nothing.
