Piano Jump Start
Be introduced to the very basics of the piano including where to find the note C, fingers numbers, how to shape your hand, and correct posture.
Learn how to identify the letter name of each natural note on the piano by first finding the note C and then using the musical alphabet to read each note thereafter.
A chord is a group of two or more harmonizing notes. In this next video we learn how to play three different two-note chords on the piano.
So far we have learned how to identify the letter name of each natural note, however the black keys can be identified by their own letter names as well.
The quintessential children's nursery rhyme and the first song in our Easy Song Bundle. Learn how to play "Mary Had A Little Lamb".
Interestingly, "Jingle Bells" was originally titled, "The One Horse Open Sleigh" and was meant to be sung at Thanksgiving, not Christmas.
Popular French nursery rhyme composed by Jean-Phillipp Rameau, also known as "Brother John" or "Are You Sleeping?"
Composed by Kindergarten teacher Mildred Hill, "Happy Birthday To You!" was originally titled "Good Morning To All" and was sung each morning in her Louisville, Kentucky classroom
No, Mozart did not write "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", but he did compose a series of variations based on the same melody, titled "Ah! Vous Dirai-je, Maman" ("Oh! Shall I Tell You, Mama").
Playing "Heart And Soul" on the piano is really fun, especially as a beginning piano student. Start by learning how to play only the left hand pattern.
The right hand plays the notes of what would essentially be the vocal melody. Learn the right hand pattern before we eventually put both hands together in the next video.
If you play "Heart And Soul" for anybody with both hands at the same time chances are that they will be quite impressed.
Finger exercises are a great way to train your hand to play different patterns on the piano while simultaneously building up a little strength in your fingers.
Change it up with a different finger exercise and start expanding your repertoire of finger exercises.
Take what we learned in the previous video for finger exercise no 2, twist it up, turn it around, add some notes, and come out with your third finger exercise!
The first Major scale that all beginning piano students learn, the C Major scale. The only Major scale which does not require the use of any sharps or flats.
To play something chromatically means to play every note in a consecutive pattern of half steps. In this video we practice a twelve note chromatic scale.
