i am rather new to playing piano, am 15, and started practicing about 1 and a half years ago, but it isnt quite that simple. my father played the piano, he died when i was 6, and nobody in the family really had any musical aspirations. we had multiple pianos just laying around, and about 2 years ago i wanted to learn, so i began trying to learn how to read music first of all. this isnt easy as i havent found any keys (like keys on a map) or instructions to what all the things on the page mean, i have been detached from a piano for nearly 8 months now, just trying to learn to read for when i am returned to the trusty friend, which is in about 5 days. i am completely self taught, so anybody here can see how difficult this is? cant play anything really, but i am getting to grips with reading and i think thats where it starts, can anybody here give me a link or just tell me what some of the less obvious things on a music page are?
sorry, i know this is completely pathetic, but thanks if you can helkp, and thanks for taking the time to read even if you dont.
