Re: Software to learn piano

Thank you for your comment markymark. In my church, i think improvisation is the challenge faced by every piano player during choir practice/presentation. Some of the pianist play as if they're playing for the church sermons. So i thought that if there's any other way to learn how to improvise, that...

Re: an adult learner, HELP - FRUSTRATED

Hi ilovemypiano, i'm kind of envious that you can read music sheets, as for me, i saw the music sheets as i see some bean sprouts (frankly to say), so i hope that u wont give up your piano lesson. Maybe after i finished my master degree i will take the piano lesson formally. It's better late than ne...

Re: Learning without a teacher?

Yes, certainly you can learn without a teacher.. But in case you want to take the ABRSM Grade 1 exam, you need to get people opinions from music background first.Coz it might be risky, since you've to pay for the exam right? Yes, beware of scams. I suggest don't learn from online, just buy the books...
