Starter Studies : Lesson One
You will need to have at least a small portable keyboard in front of you as you go through these lessons so that you can look at it and become familiar with it. Learning a keyboard is like typing. You need a typewriter keyboard in front of you to learn to type. The same is true of the piano. You need a piano keyboard in front of you to learn to play piano. A small Casio or Yamaha portable keyboard with built-in speakers would work just fine.
As you first look at the piano keyboard, it looks like there are lots and lots of notes to learn. Not so! You only need to learn 12 notes. The shaded area on the keyboard above shows the 12 notes you will need to learn. Notes on a piano are grouped in sets of 12 notes.
Each group has 7 white keys and 5 black keys. Look at the keyboard above and count the 7 white keys and 5 black keys in the shaded area. This is one group. This group is repeated over and over, up the keyboard and down the keyboard. Each group starts with a “C” note. See the note labeled “C” above? On any keyboard, “C” is always the first white key that is to the left of two black keys.
Here are more “C” notes. See how they are all located next to two black notes? Good job. . . you have learned where “C” is on the piano. This is a big step because you will always need to locate “C” before you begin to play a song on the piano.
To make this even easier, you only need to locate one “C.” This special “C” is called “middle C.” It’s called “middle C” because, when you sit down at the piano to play, it is the “C” that is straight in front of you and in the middle of the keyboard. Look at the picture above the keyboard. You will see some lines, symbols, and numbers. This is called a “Staff.” “Middle C” is also in the middle of the “Staff.”
The “Staff” is where the language of music is written. Yes, music is a language just like any other (English, French, Spanish). It has rules and special characters and so forth. This language tells you what to play and where to play it on your instrument. There is only 1 note currently shown on the staff above. This note is “middle C.” Let’s learn some more notes on the staff and how they relate to the piano keyboard.
Here are some other “C” notes and how they look when they are written on the staff. See “middle C” in the shaded area? Go to the right and look at the next “C” above “middle C.” Now go to the left and look at the next “C” below “middle C.”
Count the keys on the keyboard (including the black keys) and you will find that there are 12 keys (notes) between each “C” on the keyboard. On the “Staff,” above the keyboard, count the lines and spaces between two “C” notes and you will find that there are a total of 8 lines and spaces between two “C” notes.
This spacing of 12 on the keyboard or 8 on the staff, is called an “Octave.” In the picture above, you are looking at “Octaves” on the staff and on the keyboard, (from one “C” note to the next “C” note). You will be learning all the notes in 1 octave (1 group). The octave we will concentrate on will include “middle C.”
Find all the “C” notes you can on your keyboard.
