Me too, Discouraged- since Christmas I have learnt a simplified version of Fur Elise, the Swan Lake theme tune & Waltz of the Flowers using Youtube videos made through a program called Synthesia; if you search the name of the song you would like to learn, it comes up with various different tutorials.

Thanks for your suggestions everybody - dd is finally showing a mild and casual interest in learning to play something at long last. We have been waiting years for her to decide for herself that she would like to have a go... Bit frustrating for hubby, as he is seriously musical and actually teaches another instrument!

Just been rummaging (sp) in my piano stool and found only the cover of  Michael Aaron Adult Piano Course (Belwin-Mills Music) which I must have learnt from at the start and then also Hours with the Masters (Boswoth).  I failed my Grade 3 and gave up as my piano teacher kept making my lesson later and later in the day and I felt that as I was pregnant with DD and getting home at 10.00pm it was just too much.

So having found the music books, I thought yesterday that perhaps I should stretch my fingers over the keys.  I looked at the music, then at the keys, back at the music , back at the keys and I just couldn't make head nor tail of it all.  It was definitely a piece I'd played before as there was writihng all over it from my ex-piano teacher.  I just couldn't reconcile anything.  I think I may need to take lessons again!
