Help to continue
on: May 03, 2005, 09:43:29 AM
Hi,

I have been playing piano for some weeks now, hehe, and i need some help to continue my learning. I am a beginner, but I know how to play the G-clave and F (takes a little bit more time to read) and I know the 12 major / minor scales.

I can play pretty easy with the right hand (when there is one note at a time) but need some easy songs that requires the left hand also.

And maybe if you know some free sheet-pdf´s that is available online. (No need to be famous work, just practise repertoaire)

Kind Regards
Niklas

Have you got a teacher?  That might be a good first step.  What lesson books are you using (if any)?

I use Michael Aaron´s piano book.

Is that a book to recommend?

I dont have any teacher at the moment, but I know a good one that I have gone to 2 times before. I am thinking of calling him but I was thinking of practising a little bit myself, since it´s so expensive with a teacher (almost 60$ for one hour) :/

But maybe that´s not such a good idea?

Kind Regards
Niklas

Well, to pay $60/hour for a teacher, I would have to be really committed to piano (which I am, but you are the one in question here :)).  Is this a long-term committment for you?  Maybe at this stage you don't need a teacher at that high level.

Haven't heard of that series of lesson books.  I've heard that Faber is good, and Alfred has a series for adult students (not sure of your age).
