In this section, you will get to know more about your piano or keyboard.
I will show you how to 'play around' with the keys so that you become more familiar with your instrument.
Take a look at the PDF below to help think about the keys of the piano.
This lecture shows the black and white keys being played on the piano. It has very similar content to the previous lecture, so choose one or the other and then move on to the next lecture.
Making up your own music is known as improvising. By choosing the black keys to start exploring improvisation, you can be sure that all the notes will 'match' so you shouldn't get too many clashing sounds!
In music, we use the first 7 letters of the alphabet to name our notes - A B C D E F G.
In this lecture you will find out where each note is positioned on your piano or keyboard.
The pedals are used to enhance our playing and by using the pedal on the right hand side - the sustaining pedal - we can add a lovely smooth effect to our playing.
