Welcome diazwoman.

I too am a complete beginner ( a little over 2 months in ) at age 52. Started self teaching but got so super frustrated after a week that I got a teacher. Best thing I did. I too am super busy but my teacher comes to my house and even though I sometimes have to change the day and time she always manages to accommodate me.

Good luck in the journey.

David

EDIT: nvm, I actually managed to buy the wrong book, lol.
I bought Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course: Lesson Book 1 (in Dutch) instead of the all-in-one version.

Would anyone know what the difference is?

The All in One Book contains all the technique pages- like worksheets on the difference skills you are learning. I found these very useful, especially those on new chords or new hand positions, etc.

I am pleased to be able to tell you, after bouts of self doubt and even crying at my piano lesson, I can now play " Little Brown Jug" and "Why Am I Blue." I am thrilled, as they seemed almost impossible when I started! I am a 60 year old beginner, very close to finishing book one.

Well done BamaKathy! I'm sure you'll look back on your book 1 struggles very fondly in a couple of years.

Good for you Bama Kathy, I look forward to being where you are someday. How long ago did you start?

After a little over 3 months of lessons ( one a week ) I am at " Blow the man down " and it is driving me nuts! I swear I am gonna get it even if it kills me!
I had some difficulty with some of the earlier songs because I seem to find it hard to try and play things where the tune is not familiar to me. There are a bunch of songs in the book I am not familiar with and I found them tedious to try to learn. I am getting there though. Slow and steady. Wish I hadn't waited until I was in my 50's though. Never too late to start so they say.

BamaKathy - congratulations! Now for the bad news, some of the upcoming songs are much harder! They will likely take you longer to learn, but you will definitely get there...with patience, and practice ;-)

Sandy Fry - BTMD gets frequently identified as the first real trouble spot in the book. It is a big step to get through it!

Here's a link to the Alfred AIO level one songs on youtube. I didn't know some of them either and the videos definitely were helpful to see how fast to play and the dynamics of a piece.
