This is just great, to have moved onto learning about sharps, flats, and key signatures today.
The key signature tells you what notes will be played sharp or flat throughout the whole piece. If there are no sharps or flats, then your piece will be in either the key of C Major, or A Minor: these are the only two keys which do not have a key signature.
It’s just that if you play the piece Twinkle Twinkle Little Star beginning on any other note than C, then you will have cause to use black notes, as C Major is the only scale which has no sharps or flats.
If you play your piece Twinkle Twinkle Little Star beginning on the next note, D, then you will have to play an F# instead of F when you come to the F#. So – if you see TWO sharps in the key signature at the left of your stave of music, then the piece has to be in the key of D Major, or B Minor. For now, just accept that C Major uses no sharps or flats in the scale, and so it has no sharps or flats in its key signature.
Also accept that  D Major has two sharps, F# and C# in its key signature: this means that every time you come to an F or a C, it will be played as a sharp note on the black note directly above these notes.

A page of music has a lot of symbols and notations that are easily interpreted when you know a few basics. When you learn how to read music, you also need to know the rhythm a piece should be played. Note: This simple explanation only applies when the top number is 4 and under- simple time. A sharp () is a sign which is written in front of a note and raises the pitch of that note by one half-step. The flat, sharp and natural symbols are referred to as accidentals and only affect the note in the same octave in which it has been written.


There are times when a composer may want you to flat (or sharpen, #) all of the B’s, for example, in a particular piece. As you can see, the speed notation is the composer’s attempt to convey the feel at which the piece should be played. Playing the piano seeks to express and convey emotion and feeling through the music; so many times the composer will user emotional words and leaves it up to the musician to translate that into an appropriate tempo.
The numbers above the notes on the treble staff are typically for the right hand and numbers about the notes on the bass staff.
Liberace would always play his piano with ascending or descending notes or keys in a sweeping motion using his thumb or other finger running it right down or up the piano keyboard in very fast motion. I am beginner and find it damn easy to follow though I may have to read many times with practical to digest the whole lecture.

The key signature is found at the left side of the stave, where the sharps and flats are indicated.  The key signature defines the key which you will be playing in. There is only one major key for every key signature, and only one minor key used for every key signature.
You will be able to identify what key the piece is written in, just by looking at the key signature. We will study more  about  scales  and their key signatures in the future  lessons, which will further your understanding of today’s lesson. From Australia, this song is also a very fun round to sing (see the bottom of the page).
Also, IF YOU ARE ASKING FOR MUSIC THAT IS NOT IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN, YOUR REQUEST WILL BE IGNORED. The Staff with the Treble Clef combined with the Bass Clef make what’s called the Grand Staff. They do not affect the same note in other octaves unless they have been labeled with an accidental. In such a case there is a shortcut that eliminates the necessity for using a flat symbol every time a B appears. Looking at a page of music and understanding it will be easy once you know these definitions. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page. This means that an F# will be played on the black note, directly to the right of the white F note.


If you were to play B flat, or Bb, then you would play the black note directly to the left of the white B note. D major uses those two black notes in its scale, so these two notes, F# and C# are defined in the key signature. It really does not matter, because we will reiterate this information in different contexts throughout these lessons. I remember years ago in college, a group of music students (myself among them) glowering at a science professor in one of those required classes for music majors called "Physics of Sound" when he informed us that there was no difference in the way songs sounded if you transposed from one key to another. I am a piano teacher in New Orleans, LA and in the process of putting together my own curriculum and recordings. On some of my free sheets, I have written "For Use by Private Music Teachers" down by the Copyright notice, but I really intend them to be for the use of all teachers and students alike. Whether you are learning to play the piano through the classic method or the chord method, you’ll have to be familiar with how to read music.
This is why a natural is needed, just in case you happen to need the same note again in the same octave but without any variation in tone.
In some case, the dynamic level is related to the mood; in other cases the mark is much more direct. It is such a gift, for so many reasons!I have been slowly giving my oldest daughter whatever my memory can dredge up, scouring the internet for free music she can do, but your website with its instructions AND tips on how to teach pieces are going to help me SO much in this endeavor. To cancel a flat or sharp, a natural ( ) is placed on the staff before the note it is to affect or when a new measure begins. They are generally at the beginning of a measure (and at the beginning of the music) and usually located in the space between the treble and bass staffs. If the same note is always going to be sharp or flat, music writers use key signatures to indicate once and for all (see below).
Once set, it’s in effect until another dynamic symbol is display or for the entire piece. Talk about the difference between science and art -- he spoke with the air of one who was dispelling superstitions. C sharp and D flat are the same key and will produce the same note when played on a keyboard. We musicians were the superstitious holders of myth.Now here is a second, more vigorous arrangement of Kookaburra.
