I've decided I want to take up piano again but wondering if I need to decided what I want to do, whether it's playing at home or someplace else. My boyfriend is a drummer and has played in several bands , so that thought kind of crossed my mind. Can I get the "basics" on my keyboard and then easily make the transition to a regular piano or digital? Or is it best to make a decision and stay on one type? Also (and this shows my lack of knowledge, but I want to learn!!) is it essential to learn chords? A musician in my apartment building said it's not, that everyone learns differently.

Thanks and I"M so HAPPY to have found this forum [LIST]
