I'm a 22 yrs old guy from Nepal , Kathmandu....I recetnly bought a 62-note Keyboard...Yamaha PSR E-403....
It's been just 3 months I've developed a keen interest in learning piano....But,I'm quite desperate these days because I have some problems:So, far I haven't learnt anyhing....just some CHords looking at your Videos.
1. First thing is that, I'm a 3rd Year Medical Student....SO, I don't have much time to practice and to go to Music Institutes.....I'm not able to decide what to do how to learn.
2. Secondly, My keyboard has only 62 keys...So, is it possible for me to learn Piano with my Keyboard......
3. It doesn't have a Full-Fingered Mode\Full Keyboard Mode....
That's what I need to know from you...
I'd be so grateful to you if you replied me to my questions.

Sorry, I get a ton of messages from e-mail, youtube, youtube private messages, comments, private messages on the forum plus these questions to. It's hard to keep up and I still have to live my regular life as a piano teacher to!! I'm sorry if i didn't get back to you.
Yes, a 62 keyboard is possible to learn on, but it will only last you so long before you need to upgrade to a full size. But 62 keys should be fine for at least 3-4 months if you practise hard.
I'm not sure I understand your first or 3rd question? The first question sounds like a statement? The 3rd question i don't understand because a "full keyboard" would be 88 keys, which is what you said in your 2nd question.
Sorry, I've reread the questions over and over, and I can't tell what you mean by them. Anyway, if music is a passion, don't give up on it ever.
