Absolutely no idea hahaa

I tried learning some theory, but only got as far as some names of chords really. I don't even know the proper finger movements, I just find the most comfortable/efficient way to play

Synthesia isn't a good way to learn piano. I learned that the hard way. I would really suggest learning how to read sheet music as it's way faster and actually tells you how to play certain notes. But good playing nevertheless

If you ever intend on progressing past simple songs like these you're going to want to learn how to read music (I would also recommend learning how to sight-read if you ever intend on playing higher level pieces).

I would also recommend working on your posture at the piano as well as playing slightly lower on the keys (especially with your middle and pointer finger). This will increase the speed at which you can play pieces.

Cupped hands were great though - also I don't know if the songs you are playing have dynamics but if you added them the songs could be elevated to the next level.

Overall, really good man

I just recently got into piano again after a hiatus of 4 years, of course I don't have a piano when I go to school so I don't get to learn or play piano that often anymore.

I just started learning Un Sospiro by Franz Liszt and this is what I have so far (mind that my piano hasn't been tuned in about 6 years lol):

Appreciate the advice from both of you, but truth is, when I tried to learn the "proper" way, I started to get bored and frustrated. Music isn't anything I want to get into, so my question is it really worth it to break my established habits and learn to play properly? I'm enjoying myself where i'm at so really just want to know anyone's take on that
