well I have done it - gone and bought a piano, currently waiting for it to arrive! Booked my first lesson with a teacher recommeded to me via the piano shop. Now here is the problem. Phoned him up and explained I was very mature - he asked if I could read music and I said I played the sax (around grade 4) but would need to learn the bass clef. He asked what music I liked and he said he would base the lessons around my love of the blues and jazz.
so he recommended I bought Piano Lessons book 1 by Hal Leonard - I have ordered it and it has arrived - hmmmmm!!! Now I know we all have to start somewhere but I do feel that that fact I can read some music and that I am approaching 50 has been somewhat overlooked. The book seems very suitable for a complete beginner who is a child most of the book seems to be notes printed in a huge size completely unrelated to any music notation but with the finger numbers written above it. If I am honest I hate it!
Anyone any thoughts??
Its just I feel everything I said has been completely ignored
