Sometimes, there seems to be a huge wall of questions that can keep us from starting something new, something that seems overwhelming to us.  Something like, oh…starting piano. The good news is, it’s not overwhelming, better said, it doesn’t have to be.
Can I do it?

Can I play piano? Can I practice? Can I learn? Can I start something new at this age? Can I concentrate? Can I become a concert pianist? Can I just play my favorite songs?

Just a sidebar here, A man named John Schaum didn’t start playing Piano until he was 35 and ended up writing an entire piano music course that has been used by  piano teachers for decades and yes he played concerts.  Self taught.
