I considered putting a week-by-week process of how far I expect to get. Piano is no simple task, however, and while it’s designed with the end in mind… I’m not sure where I will end up over the course of the next three months. Each day should involve approximately an hour’s worth of practice and I plan to do this at least three times per week (today worked out to being about five hours worth of work)!
In the following video, I delve into a pre-assessment of my current Piano Skills, and some of the tools I’m using in my learning!
Here are some pictures that are related to what I’m learning. C Scale and “Sharps”
Here is the twitter for songs to be learned on Synthesia

Synthesia – easy free download to begin, but for more advanced usage, like uploading MIDI files you need the full version. I went ahead and bought that.
All I needed was a USB cord to connect my keyboard to my laptop and I was good!
Here are some major outcomes:
I can confidently play parts of several songs using both hands simultaneously on the piano.
I can identify what each key is on the keyboard.
I can learn and play several chords.
I can read sheet music confidently.
I can learn parts of songs I enjoy.
I have to start learning about reading sheet music next week! What are some good apps for looking that up?
Let me know,
