Hey you know what would really help is the first class of developing musicianship on coursera through Burklee college of music. Its a free course and is great for giving you some basic info to work with, hes a great teacher and will take you up from ground 0 of musical knowledge. Ive taken several music theory classes in my life and i really liked how he put his together. heres a link to the page

You could also do this specialisation from coursera. Only catch is that the more of teaching is piano. That didn't stop me from translating things into guitar. Highly recommended.

I would strongly recommend you get a teacher as mentioned elsewhere.

There is a four-course sequence by BCM starting in about a month (They have free and paid tiers):

I think you can just jump in and start learning, especially the very basics. This article is pretty helpful if you want to take some relatively inexpensive and low-commitment intro courses online:

When I was first starting out I also took a really good course from Berkelee School of Music on Coursera (it was like $50). To complete the course you needed to commit 5-7 hours a week, but it really helped me get the basics down...I had a good handle on basic chord progressions by the end of it, which was great for sketching productions. This was the course series:

> I would like to take a course that will teach me just like teachers teach in music schools

I hate to be the nay-sayer but you simply will not find this. A video lecture series is absolutely no substitute for a teacher. As a beginner you don't fully understand just how much is involved in learning the piano.

For example, beginners tend to vastly underestimate how difficult it is and how much things like technique matter in piano playing. A teacher will be able to understand where you're strong and where you're weak and what you can do that will give you the most bang for your buck. They will also be able to assess your progress regularly and guide you in the right direction. Once I finally got a teacher 5 years ago, my only regret was not getting one earlier.

I'm sorry to say but learning from solely online resources will be a very slow, inefficient process and you almost definitely will develop bad habits without even knowing it.

Of course, you can still learn from online resources... there are many good YouTube series out there, and Coursera has some courses. Try these:
