If you want to learn how to play keyboard piano, be prepared to put time, effort, dedication and energy into it. You must have the right attitude. There's no way you will become good at playing with a few hours or days of practice. Never mind the number of products out there that claim to teach you how to play in 45 minutes or a few days. It's just a bunch of nonsense.
You must take it one step at a time and not try to rush. Enjoy what you do. Keyboard practice should never be a chore. It should be about having fun. After all this is what music is about.
You can learn how to play keyboard piano by ear or you can learn how to read music. The choice is yours.
Some very famous musicians don't know how to read a single note on a sheet. Some of the more popular authentic Jazz musicians are typical examples. They learnt through listening. Stevie Wonder and the late Ray Charles, two blind musicians, are very famous keyboard/piano players.
However, you shouldn't underestimate the role that music theory plays. If you know how to read music it's better for you. You can simply pick up a piece of music that you have never heard before and seamlessly play it. But without a good ear for music you will never become a true master of the instrument. So playing the keyboard by ear and reading music go hand in hand.
