I had been playing keyboard for years. But I'm kind of interested to learn and practice in more proper way. As I had been self learning since the beginning. I know the basic of music theory and also know how to translate the notes (but very slow and I'm practicing on it).
So, I went to one of Yamaha Music School branch and requested the teacher to test my skill. The teacher ask me to play a song. So I played a short part of Fur Elise. The teacher said that my fingering is still weak and positioning is not that strong. She suggested me to take grade 1 music theory (just for rehearsal) and Beginning Piano for Adult.
After that, I decided not to sign up for that class. I am not sure if that's what I want/need. But self learning is really not getting me anywhere so far. So I'm planning to go for another try in another school probably. Btw, I'm 22 years old.
My aim is to play piano really well, and be able to sight read.
So, The ultimate question is, should I take piano class?
and few related questions are: - Why would I need to go for exam? - Will I do well without a professional teacher?
