Hello. I am teaching myself piano starting from ground zero. I decided to pursue the Classical Path and not mess with colors or finger numbering, preferring to begin reading music right away. I started with my right hand on middle C and learned to play those 5 notes (C-G) by sight so that when I would see a C on the staff, my thumb would fire...when I'd see D my index finger would fire, etc.
Now I get to the Dm position lesson and all that is tossed out the window as it has me shift my hand over one key so now my thumb no longer on C.
So I'm looking for suggestions on how to learn to play. I'm confused as to which way would be best to learn from here.
