I started with keyboard before beginning on a full piano. It's okay, but the range on the traditinal electric keyboard is fairly limited. Just remember to practice even just a few mins every day.My violin teacher says even 10 mins a day or whatnot if that's all that's mangeable, is better than not practicing ev'ryday.And yes, patience is good in general. Oh yes--unless you're going to do just some playing around to vent, do *not* play whilst in a temper. It's best if you're going to do something in a temper, to just compose, rather than formal practice. When I was younger if I'd pract.while angry , went, I woudl have broken my violin several times over,lol.
your question is broad so if I give you an elementary answer you cannot blame me.
The augmented chord is similar to the major chord, except that the fifth note of the augmented chord, in root position, is one half step higher than the fifth note of the major chord, in root position. For example, the notes of the C major chord are C, E, G. The notes of the C augmented chord are C, E, G#.
Take piano lessons, practise everyday and/or buy software to learn how to play, need to get back to my piano, I have a my own piano, I don't have a synthesiser, once you know how to play pianoforte, then later you know how to use the keyboard, you apply what yo have learnt.
If you already play another poly-harmonic instrument - like I do - you just need some lessons and keep updating with a good method of self-learning for a while, and make the point after a couple of months... New lessons might be necessary, but if you are a jazzmusician yet, it will go very fast...If you are not, all depends of your approach and hearing and reading qualities...Those tips are the fruit of my own experience...
