Although a teacher is always the best way to go, it isn’t the only way to go.

What I would suggest is to find a teacher who understands your situation, and is willing to let you take just one lesson a month or some other workable schedule that you can afford.

Supplement that with self teaching material. There are several good books that can be used as self teaching guides. While not the best situation at least with the occasional lesson with a teacher who can correct any mistakes you may be developing due to learning on your own you can make some decent progress.

Plenty of people have taught themselves to play at least reasonably decently. If you are doing this just for your own enjoyment then there is nothing wrong with that approach.

Another option is to see if you can find a teacher not in your area but who does lessons over the internet, such as by using skype, who may charge less.
