Forgive me if this is in the wrong section. :(\n_______________________________________________________________________________________\n\nThanks to Gary, I know what gear I am now getting. However I've really been struggling with my approach on self teaching methods. I already kind of hit elsewhere on why I want to learn to read music this time around. So with that in mind:\n\nI've had a couple of great books already recommended to me:\n\n[URL='https://www.amazon.ca/Everything-Reading-Music-Step-Step/dp/1593373244/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477055069&sr=8-1&keywords=the+everything+reading+music+book']The Everything Reading Music Book[/URL]\n[SIZE=3][URL='https://www.amazon.ca/Everything-Essential-Music-Theory-Book/dp/1440583390/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1477055069&sr=8-2&keywords=the+everything+reading+music+book']The Everything Essential Music Theory Book[/URL][/SIZE]\n[B][/B]\nI've since decided that I want to learn the keyboard as a Piano. After checking the tutorial links here and other places as well as a hundred books and other websites - I think the defining factor is that I need something that facilitates a SELF TEACHING approach. Many of the links I ended up kind of discouraged this approach or at the very least rubbed it off as undesirable due to not being able to learn correct form and perhaps two dozen other vital aspects I will miss out on.\n\nAlas - I don't have the money for paid lessons/tuition. Therefore ... at my wits end sifting though all I could to find something for the self teaching method ... I came across this:\n\n[URL='https://pianoadventures.com/browse/libraries/piano-adventures/'][SIZE=5]FABER PIANO ADVENTURES[/SIZE][/URL]\nI'm actually thinking of starting with one of the children's books. Not sure yet.\n\nI was wondering if anyone here is familiar with this series? There is even a YouTube Play list and audio downloads available for the series. \n\nI understand if this is in the wrong forum - being Piano Based teachings and what not. I wont even have a keyboard with weighted keys, but that's OK as far as I am concerned. I think the structure would be a good thing for me and it would appear to teach how to read music as you go along.\n\nPenny for your thoughts?
