The Basics of Learning to Play the Piano
1. Basics of Learning to Play the Piano
Each key on the keyboard (or any other kind of keyboard based instrument) has its own letter based equivalent: C, D, E, F, G, A, H. For best understanding look at the picture on the right.
Between some of white keys, are shorter – black keys.
Black key on the right side of the C key is called C#. Black key on the right side of the D key is called D#. On the right side of the E key, there is no black key. On the right side of an F key lays F#, and so on.
2. Description of the entire keyboard
The diagram above (C, D, E, F, G, A, H) is repeated several times on your instrument’s keyboard.
So that the letters are not mistaken, we add numbers to them depending on their location on the keyboard.
In the middle of the keyboard, the letters have no numbers added.
On the right side of the keyboard, the number 2 has been added to the letters, and even further to the right, the number 3.
On the left side of the keyboard, the number -2 has been added to the letters, and even further to the left, the number -3.
3. What do our Letter Notes look like?
Our Letter Notes allows you to play with both hands. Big letters mean that the notes are played with your right hand while smaller ones in the square (chords) are played with your left hand.
