It's okay. You can buy then study how to play piano
Then you can practice when you are at home.

If you are just starting out I'd buy an electronic keyboard rather than a piano - it is a great way to learn the fingering for a piano (though you don't get the pedals on a keyboard). If you like playing the keyboard you can move on to the piano later.

The benefits of keyboards are that the low end models are often cheaper than low end pianos, they are easy and cheap to maintain, they don't require regular tuning, they allow you to plug in headphones if you don't want to disturb other residents/neighbours and they are easy to transport and store.

As with any musical instrument it is easy to start and make noise but you will need to put in effort and practice if you want to play work by Beethoven or one of the other classic composers.

if you have a tablet i'd say download a cheap app and spend a couple hours with that before you go out and buy a physical object

uh.. you should probably start of with a keyboard first, nothing too expensive because you might figure out that it's not for you. when you get better and want to start getting closer to playing on what a real piano feels like then buying something like a clavinova is great. playing on a genuine piano is incredible, it definitely hooked me into improving, so if you find a chance to feel what a real piano plays like then you should try it.

don't try to learn songs that are far beyond your skill level because of your excitement to be able to play something you like; if you do that then you'll only develop bad habits with your playing, so start slow. check your posture, where you sit and hand positions. finger exercises like hanon and czerny are definitely vital when you start out.

the first song i learnt was this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjL41xC2Gv8
i don't really have much advice other then that since everyone has their own learning curve.
there's also music theory.. but, let's just forget that for the moment. lol.

just enjoy playing and good luck if you're going through with buying one.
