I'm new on this 'forum' and I don't know if here is the right place to ask this question but I have bought a Yamaha Keyboard and I want to learn to play it by myself.
There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format.
Check out the list of Related questions on the side bar, there are several that involve beginner learning for different areas of piano. I don't know about the piano, but I can share some general stuff which I deduct from my own learning experience with other instruments (I have regular lessons with a professional). In general if you've got enough (musical) talent then you can learn most instruments by yourself by playing and listening to (the same) music. Some lessons from a professional will greatly enhance your learning speed and help you break through "barriers" (when you just aren't able to do something no matter how much you try).
The practise style of piano is quite similar to that of guitar only the fingering is different.
Also if you can read sheet music its a bonus to find your favourite composer and look into their music maybe try learning it by ear also if you do not know how to read sheet music.
Looking at and listening to music is the best way to get a grip of how to play it so playing along to music is quite beneficial especially if you can see how its laid out in theory.
Try also to download a composition software something basic like Tux Guitar (Tux guitar has a "Show Keyboard" function which you can type in scores and measures with) for example and use it to compose some little songs and then try to play them.

The main focus of this lesson is to instruct on how to play the simplest of chords on a keyboard while showing how to obtain them with some small amount of understanding.
Having some small amount of musical training while I was young, I can say where things usually begin when a new student is being taught piano. While middle C is not usually (see Figure 3) in the middle of the keyboard, it is almost there.
Note that I listed the next C in the scale while showing an octave instead of stopping at B as shown in Figure 2.
Notice that when the C major scale is numbered using Roman numerals, some are numbered with capital letters and some are numbered with lower case letters. When playing chords in the C major family, very little thinking has to be done because only the white keys are played. When it comes to playing chords an octave higher, it is easy using a piano or other keyboard instrument.
I once saw a musical play about a couple of piano students that made humorous the stories their careers starting from their early days.
Just using the knowledge associated with the C major scale we know where the major chords are for the notes: C, F and G. Aside: However, the movement from the notes E to F and B to C or the movement of F to E and C to B is still only one half-step. Because we know what makes a minor chord minor, we can extend that knowledge to figure out what the major chords are for the notes D, E and A by using the chords Dm, Em and Am. We can also use the above knowledge to figure out what the minor chords are what the minor chords are for C, F and G. Now it is possible to figure out all of the major and minor chords for all the notes on the keyboard. NOTE: It is important to reference the keyboard (a real one or the diagrams) when studying this material to have a visual aid.
By figuring out all of the major scales and putting them in ascending order you end up with half of the Cycle of Fifths. When figuring out a major scale, it is a good indication that it is correct if the 7th note is a half-step below the 8th note. If the chords in the music you are playing are contained within the major scale, you can use that scale to solo.


One of the main advantages to learning about music theory using a keyboard is that the keyboard is a much more linear instrument than the guitar. To take this theory and apply it to guitar remember that standard tuning on a 6 string guitar is (low to high): E A D G B e. Another piece of information that is important to know about the guitar is that a movement of 1 fret (up or down) is a movement of a half-step. I'd suggest starting with one of the books you found, and just play regularly, and then as you come up with questions, ask them.
They can also recommend you the right things to play: On your own it's often hard to know what you will be able to learn to play and what is too hard and what you should play next to improve the most. It should teach you to read sheet music and the basics of the technique of playing your instrument.
Short pieces designed to train some technique, but which are often also musical), there are such exercises for any level of ability. If your ultimate goal is to write your own songs then you should probably start trying right away (listen to lots of music, analyze it and learn about harmonies). You should probably try, but you'll need to judge for yourself whether they are any good. This helped me as a drummer although I am not to certain how affective it will be from a piano perspective. Hopefully, this will help the guitarist understand how chords are played on the guitar easier than using the guitar alone.
The placement of middle C on a musical staff can be researched on the person’s own time. This is because this and many other keyboards as well as full-size pianos are not symmetrical about middle C.
Place the thumb of the right hand on middle C (or any C), skip using the index finger, place the middle finger on E, skip the ring finger, and place the little finger on G. When playing guitar it is different because you can form different version of the same chord in different places on the fingerboard. Any chord in the family of the C major scale (and any major scale for that matter) begins with the note which is the name of the chord, the third note up from that note and the fifth note up from the note of the name of the chord. We the know the minor chords are for the notes D, E, A, and the diminished chord is associated with the note B. The top of the figure shows how an octave normally looks while the bottom of the figure shows the octave as if the black keys in the octave were extended to the full length of the white keys. This is important to understand because using this knowledge along with of what notes are in the C major scale allows us to figure out for ourselves the formula for the major scale if we so wish. However, if you know the C major scale and the key spacing, you can figure out the formula every time. To figure out how to play a dominant 7th chord, reduce the (major) 7th by a half-step and fit it into the chord fingering.
Like the standard Kangaroo Elite, the Electric Elite is a desktop add-on unit which converts any ordinary desk into a sit-stand desk. You need a structured guide (in my opinion) containing a mix of music theory, pieces to play to practice techniques (including the theory behind the techniques) and little musical pieces, with enough material that you can just work through it and that after a while you can start supplementing it with songs which are now easy enough for you, gradually switching to choosing your own pieces to play instead of just following the guide. The reasoning behind that is for some other topic of research that goes into the development of music as a whole. If you place the thumb of the right hand on middle C, the rest of the fingers will each fall on one key naturally.
If playing an electric guitar it is easier to play chords one octave higher because the fingers can be placed that high on the fretboard (fingerboard) more easily due to the way the guitar is built.
For a C chord, that means the chord is made up of the notes C (I), E (iii), and G (V) of the C major scale.
Remember, the method for playing all of the chords in the C major scale is provided in the paragraph below Figure 6. The extension of the black keys is done to show that there is movement of one half-step between all keys, black or white even though some white keys have no black keys between them.


More importantly, with this knowledge, if we forget the formula for the major scale, we can refer to the C major scale to figure out the formula. Imagine moving the fingers from the notes indicated on the bottom chord of Figure 8, Dm to the top chord of Figure 8, D. Again, it is important to know that there are no black keys between the keys B and C, and E and F.
The numbering of the notes in the chord family (originally presented in the scale) is also often used in chord progressions of songs. On the guitar, when you get to the last fret on one string, the next note on the next string is not the next note as it is on the keyboard. Colour options (Black, Cherry, Maple) and additional accessories are also available.Ergonomic BenefitsSitting and Standing while Working - Sitting (and even standing) for prolonged periods of time has been shown to be a risk factor for health by numerous studies. By using the information provided below, the guitarist can more easily figure out what notes are being played with particular chords. This lesson will show how to finger all the major chords, minor chords, and dominant 7th chords, hopefully without overwhelming you with music theory. To play the D minor (commonly shown as Dm) chord, just move the hand to the right one white key so the thumb plays D, the middle finger plays F, and the little finger plays A. All chords in the C major chord family can be played by using the thumb, the middle finger and the little finger. However, because a major chord is made up of the 1st note of the chord, the major 3rd from the 1st note of the chord, and the major 5th from the 1st note of the chord the major scale formula will provide you with the major chords in the root note chord family for the root (I) note, the fourth (IV) and the fifth (V) notes of the major scales. The main keyboard platform adjusts up or down by an electric motor (activated by a button switch), and is 28" wide and 24" deep with height-adjustability up to 20.5" above the desk, which will accommodate individuals who are up to 6' 8" tall. For those who work at stationary workstations, a desk where the user can both sit AND stand at different times throughout the day will help break up those prolonged periods of unhealthy stationary work. Depending on how much you practice I would only take one lesson per month if you are on a budget, more will boost your progress (up to once per week, I would say.
To play the E minor chord (commonly shown as Em), move the hand to the right one white key. Actually, for later use and knowledge, the same holds true for playing the chords to the left of the right hand but starting with the little finger and moving to the right. Again, remember that you have already been provided with the method of figuring out all the major and minor chords for all the keys on the keyboard.
Monitors are attached to the monitor mounts using the standard VESA plates requiring 75 mm x 75 mm or 100 mm x 100 mm hole patterns. Desk add-on units like the Kangaroo are designed to do just that, by allowing the user to adjust the height of the workstation to accommodate both sitting and standing positions whenever desired.Proper Monitor Height Adjustment - One of the key risk factors for injury in an office setting is an improperly positioned monitor. You could also use the major scale formula to obtain the B major scale and work from there. These monitor mounts allow for panning, tilting, or rotating the monitors from landscape to portrait positions. A good sit-stand desk will help eliminate that problem by having independent height adjustment for the monitor relative to the worksurface where the keyboard and mouse are situated. In addition, the monitors can be height-adjusted 6.5" independently of the keyboard platform using the gas cylinder mechanism.
The Electric Kangaroo Elite has a heavy solid steel base that allows the user to position the unit anywhere on the desktop securely without creating a tipping risk. The gas mechanism used to do this with the Electric Kangaroo Elite is therefore entirely appropriate.
