Can an absolute beginner, someone who has never played the piano before or read a note of music, learn to play Debussy’s masterpiece “Clair de lune” completely from scratch? Our amigo Hugh Sung thinks so and he’s posting daily 5-9 minute video lessons and responding to feedback from participants via YouTube’s comment and video response features, as well as the Adult Beginners discussion forum at PianoWorld.com. Details about the project here.

    Here’s an instructional video I found especially useful called How to Find Music You Like (sort of work safe) http://bit.ly/w7xGC

    Kudos to Hugh for giving lessons. I don’t see why anyone couldn’t learn to play apiece with proper instruction and, if anything, having it on video makes it more useful in pausing and playback. Have a question, post it in the comments.

    BTW: People are giving lessons for quite a variety of things. I wouldn’t be surprised if you could learn to tune a piano or repair a refrigerator on Youtube. Regarding piano lessons, there are quite a bit of in-depth technical courses as well.
