I've always wanted to learn, since as far back as I can remember. I've always been envious of kids my age who already touted their fluency with the piano and being so young, but I figured I was not ready to devote myself to learning. It didn't help that my family was not musically involved. I just got a digital keyboard by Yamaha and started playing with it last night. I can't do much now, of course, but I'm learning some simple chords and trying to familiarize myself with the music scale, etc. It came with a lesson on a DVD, so I'll try that today. However, and this may sound a bit perturbing, since this keyboard doesn't have "light-up" keys (only an LED screen that shows which notes and keys are playing), I am finding it difficult to learn songs from the keyboard. Does anyone have any tips for advancing my playing without professional lessons (those will come next summer)?
