Im mainly a tuba player at my high school, but in the last two years, i have been studying percussion and playing snare drum, timpani, and drumset. I am also in my high school drumline. I just really havent gotten around to learning keybopard instruments.
Any advice for how to start out?
any books i could buy?

First off, watch EVERY video. I've watched each video several times. He knows his ****.

-Learn all your major scales, and play all of them.

-Get Goldenberg's book.

Goldenberg blue is excellent. The two mallet Krause book is a great technique and chop builder as well. Use it every day as a warmup, and aim to go through alesson every 1 or 2 weeks depending on your pace.

I'd definitely agree with the books mentioned above (especially the Goldenberg), as well as practicing your scales, arpeggios, etc. It'll start to come with time.
