Learning how to read sheet music for piano can be quite daunting at first because it looks like a series of lots of lines and dots with several random symbols thrown in for good measure. The key thing to remember is that piano music simply uses the basic elements of sheet music – it just has a lot of them because a piano player has 2 hands and a total of 10 fingers and therefore the potential to play a lot of notes at any one time. It helps to remember this when practicing as you can practice one hand at a time and make significant progress with whichever piece you are wanting to play. Some contemporary piano music has one stave (usually Treble Clef) for the right hand and chord symbols above or below the staff.
The move from one white key to the next is called a full step if there is a black note between them. First, the key signature, which is located between the time signature and the clef sign, can let you know whether notes will be natural, sharp or flat.
The other way to determine if a note is going to be sharp, flat, or natural was mentioned above. The piano's notes, about which you've already gained some knowledge by reading this article. In your piano lesson you should also receive critiques of your technique, playing ability and progress.
You can find a qualified piano teacher through your local university, college, church or publication, or perhaps you know a family friend who may be interested in teaching you how to play the piano. The following articles and web pages can help you learn to read music and, in the process, learn how to associate the keys on the piano with the notes on the music.
Two more piano pieces, Awakening & Enchantment have now been transcribed and are available as sheet music on the Glimmerings page or on the Merch page. Just want you to know that your music is ever present in my life and so it is in others lives too! This piano tutorial is a bit harder then the other piano tutorials and that's because it is ment for piano solo. In the second part the left hand will take the part of accompanying and the right hand will play the melody.


Dotted note: One dot lengthens the note by one-half its value, two dots by three-quarters and so on.
Usually (but not always), the top stave is written in the Treble Clef and the bottom stave is written in Bass Clef. Whether you play the piano for its romanticism, the beauty of the pieces that can be played, or because your parents are forcing you to do it (lucky you), you need to keep in mind that playing an instrument requires hard work and dedication. While a keyboard follows the same basic rules you use to play the piano, keyboards often have less keys and achieve a different sound. Everyone has to start somewhere when learning to play the piano; we are going to start with Middle C. This is because some sharp and flat notes are actually played on the same key as natural notes. Determining whether the keys you play will be sharp or flat can be done in a few different ways. Throughout the entire piece, the B will be flat unless otherwise noted by a natural or a sharp sign will be located next to the specific note.
This is because the F Major scale is what determines what the key signature is going to be. A sharp, natural or flat symbol will sometimes appear before a note to indicate how you should play it. Not only do scales help improve memorization of notes and key location, but they also help you to improve tone, quality, intonation, technique and stylization. You'll be playing the melody in the right hand with and extre voice and the bass in the left hand in the first part.
The five staff lines and four intervening spaces correspond to pitches of the diatonic scale - the higher the note on the staff the higher its pitch - which pitch is meant by a given line or space is defined by the clef, the ''leftmost'' symbol on a staff.
They usually reflect the natural rhythmic grouping of notes, for example, several notes which are to be sung to one beat.
The top stave shows the notes that should be played with the right hand, whilst the bottom stave shows the notes to be played by the left hand.


In this case, you would play the tune with your right hand and improvise the chords with your left hand.
Nevertheless, if you have to get something smaller due to your current living accommodations, a keyboard will suffice for basic learning purposes and practicing requirements. Your keyboard should have a row of white piano keys interrupted by alternating sets of three and two black keys. Instead of the fourth note being flat, the seventh note of every scale, used to determine the sharp key signature, will be a sharp note. While some people are able to play the piano by ear (this means they can hear a song and can sit down and play it without knowing how to read a note of music), most people cannot do this. Between lessons, or if you are teaching yourself, you will want to practice as often as possible.
Depending on your instructor, the price may cost anywhere from $10 dollars to $30 or $40 per lesson, or even more. Therefore, reading sheet music becomes an integral part of learning to play the piano for beginners. Even seasoned piano players consistently improve and learn new techniques, so do not expect to learn everything right away. These things take time and the learning will never end as you constantly strive to improve your sound, skill and ability. Continue moving one white key over to get F, G, A, B, and you will find yourself back at C again.
