Step One: Learning The Piano

I was very lucky to get a full sized keyboard for Christmas, but haven’t really been able to use it properly yet as I can’t actually play the piano.

There are 40 books in the series and they each have an accompanying audio cassette. That’s right cassette, they’re that old! Now I don’t know about you but I got rid of my cassette player quite awhile ago, so I’ve had to order a new one. I remember working myself through the books when I was about 15 and I managed to get to book 7. At the time I found the method of teaching really good, and whilst the technology might be out of date now, the teaching information is definitely not, which is why I thought I’d blow the dust off of them. My aim is to work through at least one book a week, so we’ll see how that goes. In 9 months I could be playing this:
