The Teacher's Answer:
You really need to learn to read music if you want to be successful and be able to share or teach any music you create to others. It's really not that hard, and once you know the basics you can teach yourself to play almost anything.

The Answer You Wanted:
I did a quick search for the terms "learn to play the piano visually" on Google. The first item that comes up is a site with a DVD you can purchase that supposedly will teach you exactly what you want. I have never watched it though so I don't know how good it is.

You might also want to read "Can You Really Learn To Play a Musical Instrument From an Online Course?". It has a list of online music courses for many different instruments. Just pick the one you want and Google that title to find their web address.

Other than those sites I have not found any that attempt to do what you want to learn for free. The only easy way to teach such a thing would be with streamed video and most people can't afford that kind of bandwidth and still offer stuff for free.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

I think a lot of famous men played by ear back in the day but it doesnt matter because they were the originators then but as a whole new generation who can only build upon what is already set, we have to learn the right way. or be Yanni
