Whether you dream of playing professionally, or you’d just like to serenade your friends and family at home, learning to play the keyboard can be a rewarding endeavor. Before you become the next Mozart, you’ll need to learn some keyboarding basics, like how to properly sit at a keyboard and what the different keys are. With enough practice, you can learn to play your favorite songs on the keyboard, and maybe even write a few songs of your own.
