Hello. In a case you have no change to have a music teacher I would recommend you to search information from certain books. Perhaps you should decide which instrument to use and therefore support your music theory on that certain instrument. For example if you wish to choose a piano you can learn what the notes look and sound like on the piano. After learning the notes it is easy to start learning other little details there are on the notation. I would recommend you to listen some music on that certain instrument and to find the notation of that composing. Then it is the most easiest to adapt your play into the one you can hear on CD or so. It is thrilling to realize that what you play actually sounds the same as on the recorded music. It is not about the age. I believe musical talents are possible to achieve with hard work and by gaining to the top from the bottom. Step by step.
