Initial ideas to help learn about the piano keyboard or "Field of play." Just like in sports pianists have a playing field. I have found that so much of the time people are so anxious to play the instrument that so many obvious things are overlooked in order to "learn a song in your first lesson" or "learn to play in three easy lessons", etc. Well someone needs to tell you it takes hours and hours and years to become even proficient at anything much less the intricacies of piano playing unless you are a prodigy, (which you very well may be and will still need much work, discipline and dedication). If you are like most people you should consider the broader, longer view. If you want a life-time of creating beauty on one of the most beautiful instruments in the world take the tortoise's speed and not the hare. It's really interesting if you have a little guidance to bring out those qualities in you that will add to the beauty and love which makes for a grateful and aware person, and maybe a grateful and aware artist, too.
