Tablet piano instruction?

I have an electric, piano-weighted keyboard that I want to learn how to play. I can't afford lessons right now. It has MIDI in and out connectors.

What did you have to learn the hard way that you wish someone had just taught you about? Or what do you think adolescents should be taught, either in school or by their parents, that they aren't? An example would be basic personal finance (i.e., how not to get into bad debt). Another would be workplace & job interview etiquette. [more inside]
