How I Taught Myself to Read Sheet Music and Play the Piano (And What It Taught Me) – MusicRadar | Start Classified

The first time I sat down to try and play a piano was five months after my 40th birthday. It was a five octave Yamaha Beginner keyboard with a bossa nova attitude and basically no dynamics and I had no idea what I was doing.

I couldn’t read sheet music, but when I looked at the (minor) number of sheet music on the page, I could Ramin Djawadi’s cover of No Surprises (opens in new tab), I thought it looked pretty manageable. It wasn’t.
