I can't seem to find an effective practicing flow. I have tried setting up a schedule. It divided pacticing into 4 sections and lasted for 1 hour. However I felt it was not helping me too much. Any suggestions?
Does anyone know of any helpful piano resources? For example MagRack or some helpful websites? I am always in constant need of these things. Guitarists are so lucky! They get all the programs and websites and online videos and backing tracks and lessons and everything they can possibly need!!! RANT RANT RANT!!! I want it I want it I want it!!!
Ehhemm....yeah so anyway. That's it. :)

Thanks, some of those are pretty helpful.

Arn't there any sites like Licklibrary.com but for keyboard/piano? Those kind fo things are so helpful...if I played guitar. They have video lessons and backing tracks and articles etc. And btw (not to be annoying), people should start making Piano Articles here :D

Well, it's been a loooong time since you asked this question but I stumbled upon this site which is a real gem for anyone who wants piano sheets.
http://sheetmusicarchive.net/
There is a massive amount of sheet music on that site, and no need to register, BUT you can only download TWO sheets a day, with regards to bandwith costs. Anyhow, I'm thinking 2 a day is more than enough for anyone beginning (like myself).

Greets, Buebo.

I found a whole book devoted to piano practice:

http://www.sinerj.org/~loyer/PianoBook/ (http://www.sinerj.org/%7Eloyer/PianoBook/)
it's a legal link.

I printed it via the site Lulu.com so now I have a physical version of the book, I'm reading it right now.
