Am I too old to learn?
As long as you have the desire and determination it doesn't matter what age you are.
Can I learn on a keyboard?
Yes, as long as the keyboard is touch sensitive. You will need to purchase a sustain pedal to work on the pedalling techniques. An electric piano would be a better option.
Do I learn each book one after the other?
No. There are two main books that will be used from start to finish, Book 1- Manual and Book 4- Music. Book 2- Technique should be used for anyone wishing to work on their technique on a regular basis and Book 3- Practice Notes is used as a supplementary guide when learning the music in Book 4 so you just "dip in" when you need extra help. Use the online videos when you get stuck on a particular bar, line or phrase.
