Getting a teacher
Learning involves gets both ideas and feedback, for this a teacher is a very good thing to have. Good teachers have a whole bag of tricks that they can apply on need, while others teach by rote.
I suggest you:
Get a Jazz pianist, or a guitar player, with a flexible mind, not someone who can play classical
Test Question: “can you teach me to read fake sheets”:
Correct answer “well duh”
Wrong answer, what are fake sheets?
