There are many methods to help learn piano notes but this way is easy and children immediately engage with this animal memory game. 2. Start by asking them to play the groups of 2 black notes and 3 black notes, all the way up and down the keyboard, making sure to use the left hand for low notes and the right for high. 8. A for ANTS comes next, notice that the full piano keyboard starts and finishes on an A . 9. The last one is B for BEAR – repeat the process, and all the notes have been named, as we have reached C again! Now try to see if they can remember all the animals from beginning to end, as they play each note from C – B.

Hi, may I ask what fingering should the child to use when playing the notes in this 1st lesson?
Hi Sarah, This early lesson is really a note naming exercise and so the emphasise is on finding and identifying the notes rather than playing them with any particular fingering. My favourite piano tutor books are Chesters, they have a cute set of fun characters and offer a good clear introduction to the basics and kids always love them.

Let’s Play Music is just over two years old, and in that time the FIRST PIANO LESSONS has been so popular.

FIRST PIANO LESSONS is an eBook, which means it is a digital book and will be delivered to you as a PDF. Hi Judy, Yes it’s no problem for me to send the ebook directly to your email, but you would still need to pay through paypal. They are so keen to memorise the order of the animals that they inadvertently learn the piano keys without realising it!
Then find middle C by looking for the 2 black notes in the middle – C comes just before these 2 black notes.
E  for ELEPHANT comes next, find all the elephants by hopping up and down the keyboard, noticing that it comes on the other side of the 2 black keys.6. The next note is F for FROG! The next note is G for GIRAFFE, find all the Gs up and down the keyboard, always making sure that the right hand is used for higher than middle C, and the left hand is used for lower than middle C. Although this seems a lot of information for the first piano lesson, children really seem to enjoy the challenge of remembering the correct order of the animals, and after a little bit of practice they love to demonstrate that they can recognise which one is which. Allow the child to explore the keyboard, using whichever fingers they find most comfortable (probably 1,2 & 3) The discipline of fingering comes in the following lessons. It makes the dexterity for the left hand easier and maybe he might find the right hand takes a little more practice, but either way, its very good for both. Chesters also have lots of additional support books like easy first Jazzy pieces and simple arrangements of well known tunes.

There are lots of excellent piano resources out there that are perfect for older beginners, but these lessons are aimed specifically at the youngest and are designed to engage and encourage little ones while building the all important firm foundations for the future. If you follow the blog then some of the characters and ideas will appear familiar as these are the tried and tested methods which have proved so popular over my years of teaching.
Depending on the apps you have installed and your operating system you might be able to go ahead and download the book on your mobile device, but if you have any doubts or problems, it is recommended that you use a computer to download the book and then share it to your mobile devices. You can read the book on screen or print it off. I have tried to purchase the first piano lessons and some of the Let’s Play Lessons and none of the links will allow me to purchase. We’ve checked all the links on desktop and mobile and everything seems to be working fine and our normal sales have not been affected in any way. We are about to start your free introduction to piano and wanted to add these to the keys as visual interest? The printables you need are available in The first Piano Lessons eBook – which would very helpful to get him started.

The whole keyboard stretching out in front of them can be a bit overwhelming, so firstly it is important to break it down, and help to them recognise that there are indeed only 7 notes, just repeated over and over. Encourage them to explore some high and low notes, and make sure they can tell the difference. It comes after C and is in between the 2 black notes, which look like the dog’s black ears! Find all the Ds. Repeat the hopping game in the same way, noticing that it comes before the group of 3 black notes. Check out my First Piano Lessons eBook for much more detail, resources and teaching guidance. We were paying ALOT on 1x week 30 minute lessons for our kids and I was so sad when our budget couldn’t support it anymore!
Of course there are tons of other great tutor books out there and I often pick and choose extra pieces from other sources to keep them interested and this builds up a fun repertoire. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. But there are also plenty of NEW and ORIGINAL games and exercises, which will be fantastic for supporting young beginners at home or excellent resources for teachers who are looking for some engaging material for their younger pupils. You can print the whole book, or just the printable resources at the back as and when you need them. The first time (sliding snakes) the object is simply to identify the whether the notes go up or down, and the second time (spot the frog) the object is to find where the thirds occur along the line of tones and semitones. It’s difficult for us to work out the problem from this end; but perhaps when you are clicking on the add to cart button and it opens in another browser, that might be blocked by your phone? I didn’t want to buy the set until I know he is going to stick with it and not loose interest after a month. Depending on the age and attention span of your child or the child you are teaching, to make it easier this lesson can be broken up into two sections which introduces C-D-E-F first, and then G-A-B  the next time.
My budget does not permit me to hire a private trainer, so I have been looking for good resource. Thanks for raising this question, I can see why this is a bit confusing and will make sure I clarify this point in the future. Navigate by looking for the 2 black keys, and notice that they are always the same distance of 8 notes apart each time, call this an Octave.
