Look at Minute a day Music Theory lessons before you start.

This is the first piano lesson.

These lessons will work if you have a piano, an organ or an electric keyboard.

If you are using an electric keyboard, how many keys (including the black ones) does it have?
It is best to have a keyboard instrument with at least 61 keys on it.


This is a section of a piano or keyboard.

There are white keys and black keys.

Look at the black notes.
There are groups of two together and groups of three together.

Find each group of two black notes and play them.

Then find each group of three black notes and play those.
Don't worry about which fingers to use - just play them.

Now we will talk about the white keys.


As you look at the piano here, you will notice that there is a letter "C" on the white key that is found on the left side of each group of two black keys.

Look at your piano and find and play all the C's. After you have done that, find the C that is closest to the center of your piano.
On some keyboards, it might be slightly to the left of center.)
That one is called MIDDLE C.

Continue to practice finding all the C's on your piano and finding Middle C until it is very easy for you.
