I've read all over this site that, despite being a family man with children, a job, and being around 40 years old, I am not hopeless in learning the piano. So, I've started by myself.
I know I should get a teacher, I understand and believe it's the best choice, but it is at the moment, impractical.
The book I have been suggested is "Beyer Op. 101", but comments have pointed out that it is a very old one, and things have moved on. The fact is, I don't have a clue on how fast and when I should move from an exercise to another.
Is there something like an "average progress plan" for a student, with a possible timeline, and objectives?
Of course I am also open to other books, I am, as I said, totally new to music.
Thanks for any suggestions!
