BEG. PIANO LESSON 1

    LEARN PIANO QUICKLY

LESSON ONE

 

Learn the piano keys - there are only 7 key names:

 

A        B        C        D        E        F      G

It would be impossible to find individual white keys without black keys

 

Use the black keys to find the white keys

 

Black keys are grouped in 2’s and 3’s
There are 7 groupings of each on a piano – count them.

If you have a smaller keyboard there are only 5 of each group
5 groups of 2 and 5 groups of 3

COUNT THEM ON YOUR INSTRUMENT

STEP #1

Learn the 3 white keys around the group of 2 black keys first.

The most important key on the piano is C – it is found to the left of the 2 black keys.



Play and count the number of C’s on your piano or keyboard

There are 8 C’s on a piano and 6 C’s on a keyboard – the top key on both is a C

Play and count all the C’s again on your piano

 STEP #2

                          The white key to the right of the 2 black keys is E
                                                                    

Play and count the number of E’s on your piano or keyboard

There are 7 on a piano and 5 on a keyboard

Play and count all the E’s again

  STEP #3

The white key in the middle of the 2 black keys is D


Play and count the number of D’s

7 on a piano and 5 on a keyboard

Play and count all the D’s again

 

Find and play the following patterns of C, D and E around each group of 2 black keys

DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER UNTIL YOU CAN FIND THESE 
3 NOTES ANYWHERE ON YOUR PIANO OR KEYBOARD.
