    In the interests of sharing with the community, I propose that we use this thread to share online piano and keyboard tutorial and resource websites which we have found useful and might help others.

    I'd also like to propose that Becky makes this thread a sticky at the top of the forum.

    Without further ado, here's a few sites which I have found useful.

    http://www.metronomeonline.com/

    http://eartrainingradio.com/

    All of these sites are partially if not completely free of charge.

    Have fun exploring. I think if you can master all the material in all of these links you've earned your PhD in music ;)

    Feel free to add to the list...

    Gary,
    You wrote earlier.
    ""Have fun exploring. I think if you can master all the material in all of these links you've earned your PhD in music ""
    After 10 days I have the PhD. Piled high and deep in download tutorials. I liked your pictures of your rigs in another thread, they gave me a few ideas.
    I am making a RubeGoldberg contraption to put my old Macbook laptop above my preloved YPT-320. Jim.

    I'm happy to share these links with the community Jim.

    While some of them have disappeared over the years and other new ones have come along they still provide a good basis for beginning the journey of musical learning which we have all come to enjoy.

    And always remember! Google Is Your Friend!!@!

    Gary ;)

    Here are sources of pieces (mostly classical) listed in graduated order. The idea would be to learn easier pieces before harder ones, thus improving your technique. The lists come from two performance assessment organizations:

    Royal Conservatory of Music (Canadian)
    Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (England)
    You do not need to go through the assessment process. These are just a source of music listed in order of difficulty so that learning new pieces will also push your technique to the next level. The listings are free for download, but you'll have to find the music separately. Much of it is available online for free -- Google is your friend. Both the RCM and the ABRSM will sell books of piano music for the numerical levels, so if you don't want to search them out, you can just get a collection. The organ and harpsichord markets aren't big enough to justify selling graded collections.

    What a great list of sites.
    Many thanks from an oldie who, in retirement, has decided to learn to play the pee-an-oh properly.

    Not in a position to afford lessons, I had to buy an instrument first, I was looking for an on-line course.
    The one I discovered, which seems to have many endorsements, is the PianoForAll course.
    It's not really on-line as you don't need to be 'connected' to benefit from the lessons.
    However, you'll find loads of videos about the course on YouTube.


    It costs $39.95 at the time of writing, but that includes nine downloadable pdf books of lessons.
    The files have both audio examples and video instruction lessons built right into them.
    It covers sufficient theory and fingering, as well as a gradual introduction to the dots.
    The tutor, Robin Hall, explains it all very well, in my opinion and responds very quickly to any email questions.
    The one drawback there may be for some is that you really need to be able to print out the pdf files, in my opinion, unless perhaps you have a good large tablet.
    The pdf's are loadable onto a tablet and the embedded audio and video can be played with the apps that Robin recommends on his web site.

    I can also heartily recommend the Casio Privia PX-560 digital piano, which we've just purchased.

    For anyone wanting to learn to read sheet music or improve sight reading or something like that, Piano Marvel is a pretty decent application with a 30 day free trial.
