Ok, so I've officially been playing for 1 week. I have just a little prior experience with the piano, years ago, but most is gone.. some of it has come back to me this week, but most all of the memory is beginning lessons, some Hanon scales and a few melodies from Alfred's All in one, level one. eg: Oh When the Saints, The Entertainer - super easy version Smile and Amazing Grace.. So, anyway, right now I have a 61 key Casio...its no Yamaha Grand, but hey, it has keys, and makes noise, so Im happy..LOL

Today, I am working through the first ARIA in Bach's Notebook collection.. I don't think I have enough key's for this piece.. Sad actually it looks like i'm just missing one.. the low c, but I'm not sure.. remember, only 1 week in...
Smile Its a nice short piece that I think will improve my playing quickly, and I'm trying to follow your advice on learning the right hand, then the left hand.. then Ill put them together and make Scrambled eggs of my brain. haha.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hey Tony Smile

Soudns like you're on the right track, Don't worry if you don't have enough keys. For now, you want to make sure you're getting your fingers moving properly with good technique and learning to read the sheet music faster Smile
Good luck!!!

SLOW is the keyword Smile
going slow = learning fast
going fast = learning slow
