Learning the Piano Part 2: The How

Piano stepsIn my last post, I shared why I wanted to learn the piano. There were many reasons – from continuous improvement and reliving the past to sharing something with people and another way to express myself. Learning the piano is a quest that will greatly add to my Life.

 

To succeed in a goal however you need more than good thoughts and a dream. You need a plan of Action Steps. Winging it gives you haphazard results and costs plenty of wasted time and effort.
