Teach yourself piano in 20 steps! (Eh? Can you really do that? )
Learning the piano, with or without a piano teacher, is a process that can be accomplished in any number of ways.
However, in order to get the most results as early as possible and not learning things in an awkward way, nor having to relearn any aspect (horror!) for all of us that want fast results ...
... here is a plan on what steps you may take when you want to learn the piano from scratch.
Any kind of learning process could be seen as a spiral; you will learn a certain amount of things on a basic level that will be repeated again and again as you progress on more advanced levels.
The below steps could be seen as a first swirl around that spiral…!
With that said, I am not trying to present a one-solution-to-all progress; because that would be impossible.
Even though core elements in the process are the same in many ways of teaching and learning how to play piano, something that works for one person simply does not mean that it would work for another.
So, here is just one way of looking at a step by step plan for learning the piano.
Spend as much time as you need on each step and make sure to master each before moving to the next. And do enjoy yourself!
Repeat this process with more advanced materials!
