    It was invented by Bach so he could spell his own name in melodies. (Not really, but he did do it).

    existentialist Spartacus? No, never heard of him.

    And a good example of a Baroque era composer messing around with tonalities :)

    Do people think lessons or self teaching?

    Lessons with a decent teacher are a good way to avoid obvious bad habits at the start, and will probably speed up the learning process. Ideally, the teacher would be one who's interested in encouraging you to develop your skills independently alongside the lessons rather than just slavishly doing as they tell you.

    I would need somebody who won't try to stop me being over ambitious and creative

    Definitely. When Mrs E took her daughter to a local piano teacher, she asked him how much practice he thought she should do. He said "as much as she wants to, and if she doesn't want to practice, I'm not doing my job". Find a teacher with that attitude, and you're home and dry.
