In today’s video lesson we will finish learning how to play the first movement of Fur Elise. If you have decided that you would like to purchase the sheet music for Fur Elise, you can click on the following link: Fur Elise sheet music.
Please note that you do not need any sheet music to learn to play the piano with my videos.
Note that today’s online piano lesson video begins with the measure labeled with the number 2.
There is actually one other kind of note in the above transcription – a dotted eighth note! When a dot is placed next to a note, the duration of the note is increased by half of its value. In other words, the dotted eighth note is held for the same amount of time as it takes to play three sixteenth notes. Let’s look closely at one measure of the above transcription and do some musical mathematics to see how the notes and rests we just learned about fill out the measure. Let’s also take a moment to look at how nicely everything is lined up when you compare the symbols on the treble and bass staffs.
The dotted eighth note on the treble staff has the same duration as the three sixteenth notes on the bass staff.
Next week we will begin learning to play the second movement of Fur Elise which is much harder. And yes, I will continue to teach some theory with each lesson for those of you that are interested.
More specifically, today you will learn how to play a large portion of the first movement of Fur Elise. Remember that you can learn to play the piano just by watching my videos, but for those of you that want to take things to a more advanced level, please continue reading after the video. Make sure to rewind frequently – try to get comfortable with each part before moving on. Now, for those of you that want to take things to a more advanced level, let’s get a little deeper into the theory. Anyway, let’s take a look at a transcription of the part of Fur Elise taught in this lesson.
If you take another look at the transcription of Fur Elise above, you will see that there is an eighth note on the treble staff right at the beginning of the third measure.


Made-easy notes for original melody of FA?r Elise You will notice that I have not added any fingering. This version, below, is also just a portion of the main melody, but it is the most exciting part, the part everyone knows. Printable piano music Fur Elise If your students would like a bit of help with those notes, you might want to offer them the easiest, simplified version. For example, I have come to realize over the years that the concept of Middle C can be a mystery for beginners. Do you have a funny story about this music, or does it remind you of something you'd like to share with other readers?
Where is Middle C? I have a little bit of background playing piano, but I was wondering where Middle C is on the piano. A Question and an Idea for Figuring Out How to Start Well I actually have a question and possibly an idea if you think about it. What is that musical symbol and what does it do? What is the thing that looks like a sharp but isn't in the second bar, third note? Older Beginners Needing Letters on the Notes If people require the letters above the notes find EZ PLAY music books . What? On the left hand chords couldn't you at least put the letters in to represent each note! Miggy, United Kingdom:I've just found your website and I think I've died and gone to heaven.
Don’t be afraid to rewind as much as you need to, and try to spend about five minutes every day with this lesson. But for those of you that are interested I will continue to teach you how to read the sheet music in this blog post after the video lesson. See if you can find them (note that in the transcription these notes are upside down with the flag turned inward).
Here we have three sixteenth notes, followed by a sixteenth rest, followed by an eighth rest. Therefore the first eighth note on the treble staff is shifted over to the right so that it appears right above the sixteenth rest on the bass staff. Let’s talk about that symbol mf that appears between the treble and bass staffs in the above picture.
A stave (or staff) consists of five horizontal lines and four spaces, each corresponding to a different note on the piano.


Well the clef determines how each line and space on the staff corresponds to a key on the piano.
Well an eighth note is drawn in two different ways, depending upon if there is only one, or more than one in a row.
Please check farther down the page - I have THREE different arrangements here, plus a worksheet!FA?r Elise is probably the most famous piano music Beethoven wrote. I have simplified it to make it fit within the Middle C hand position, but kids will like to play it anyway.
I Can't Read the Notes! Agreed I cannot play unless the letters of the notes are there!!! If you spend just five minutes a day following this video, then by next week you will have mastered this part, and you will be ready for lesson 2.
For example, the treble clef tells you that the topmost horizontal line corresponds to an F on the piano, whereas the bass clef assigns the topmost horizontal line to a much lower A. Even beginner piano players will be able to read and enjoy this free printable sheet music version, and your younger students will feel a great sense of accomplishment in being given "real piano music" to play! Looking at a skill a different way will frequently reveal holes in students' understanding.
If not continually reinforced, they may think that Middle C for the left hand is an octave lower than Middle C for the right hand, instead of being the exact same note. After that, it will not be such a huge step to playing the entire melody of part I of Fur Elise with right hand alone, with the left hand playing the broken chords. I helpfully point out the first spot where a note is missing ("Oh, look, we need a D sharp there.").
I also live in the middle of nowhere so buying from a shop is not really an option unless I fancy a 120 mile round trip for a piece of sheet music!
In piano music two different clefs are used – a treble clef appears on the treble staff and a bass clef appears on the bass staff.
