    As a guide take into account that almost there is no any great pianist, current or historical, who hasn`t taken piano lessons. The exception was Chopin, but he was an incomparable genious and, on the other hand he received a complete musician training. Only after several years of intensive piano lessons, professional pianist feel able to do it without a teacher (Joseph Hoffman and Maurizio Pollini are examples). There is a lot or things that only a good teacher can teach and a one alone not even could guess. The teacher can also correct unseen bad habits in posture, score reading, digitation, touch, artistry etc., which could prevent further progress or cause injuries if left uncorrected. He could also provide guide about repertory at every level and to establish a tailor-made practice program. Good piano playing is already a difficult task as to be undertaken alone. In this forum continously intervene persons claiming proudly to have self-taught to play piano. But I`m seriously in doubt that they can play really well. If you really love piano playing and wish to be a good pianist, look for a good teacher. Any teacher isn`t suitable at all. Look for a true musician who play piano well, able to provide you with a solid basis. Only the best teachers must teach to beginners and to advanced pianists. A piano student.

    I would say you can learn, but you will improve mcuh faster with lesson. If you have a teacher he or she will discover things you do wrong, things you perhaps wouldn`t discover yourself.

    Well my good sir, to be quite honest, yes you can learn to play without taking lessons. I know plenty of people who do. You just have to be determined and efficient in practicing and enjoy what you do. I have done both, I`ve tried to teach myself and I`ve had lessons, and to be honest, I had more progress with lessons. Some people learn different. But on the other hand, lessons are good to take because they can instruct you on proper ways to play the piano. Like what the best way to sit is, or how close do you need to sit to the piano to acquire a correct playing style. But overall, just play man. If you enjoy it and like learning by yourself and just playing, do that, or if you would like to play in a proper realm and take lessons, do that. Aight God Bless.
