PIANO AS A HOBBY

Piano makes a much better hobby than a profession.

Once you pay for a keyboard, and they can be had for as little as $50, you have completed the largest and possibly only expense. 

The most important choice is how to proceed and what method to use.

You should make your first goal be playing songs you know, no matter how simple. In other words, you may want to play BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, but you would be better off starting with simple songs, even children's songs, just to get the idea.

With that in mind, you now have to choose what method you will use. 

The largest distinguishing factor in piano methods is whether or not they require reading music.

Those methods that require reading music take a long time to get started, unless you are that rare person who learns to read music almost instantly.

You should try a few of the methods that use reading music and see if you have an aptitude for it. 

Most likely you will find that starting with reading music restricts you to the simplest of pieces, which is not bad, but you may find that this restricted diet, in the long term, breeds boredom. 

Gaining enough skill to read complex music takes enormous amounts of time and effort, and this may frustrate you.

One solution is to play be ear, although this will require a teacher or guide in the beginning to show you the basics. This may involve expense, which may be considerable.

The only method I know of that gives the beginner absolute freedom with the lowest cost is Piano By Number.

Using this method, where numbered stickers are put on the keys, will allow you to explore a large library of familiar songs with minimal expense.

As you gain experience with the geography of the keyboard, you are also building physical skills and experience with fingering, chords, and a myriad of subjects that you will have to begin to study in order to have a satisfying time at the piano.

As a hobby, the piano is very inexpensive if you can teach yourself, or at least keep your lesson expenditures to a minimum.
