From now on we will show the lines horizontally, the notes are played across the page from left to right. Once you are used to reading the left and right hand octaves we can add extra lines on the top and bottom to show three octaves on a standard printed page. Notes played outside these three octaves will be shown with additional grey lines ("ledger lines"). A circle (a note that is not filled) with a stem is played for 2 beats and is called a minim. A black note joined to another black note is played for half a count and is called a quaver.
When a note is joined (tied) by a curved line (a tie) to the next note (of the same pitch) it is held down for the combined time of both notes and not played twice. When a group of notes has a curved line above or below it, each of these notes is held down until the next is played. Don`t worry if you`re confused - it is much easier to imagine the difference using an example. My child is only 5 – is it too early to start lessons – might it be a waste of money?
These are all frequent questions asked by parents who are interested in starting their child on the piano. These first piano lessons are a series of short exercises disguised as games, that combine strengthening and co-ordination with note recognition and memory.
With this series of easy first piano lessons, parents will be able to assist their own children in the basic, first steps of playing the piano.

ReviewsThere are no reviews yet, would you like to submit yours?Disclaimer: These are user reviews. Usually, notes played by the right hand have stems pointing up, and notes played by left hand have stems going down. Tunes are written in different "scales" of 8 notes, according to the mood and sound of music desired. The opposite of staccato is legato, which means you should play as smoothly and gracefully as possible.
To make a minor scale the third note of the major scale is flattened = moved down one key, semi-tone, = moved to the adjacent black or white note on its left,  Minor scales are often used for sad or moody tunes.
These notes are at fixed separations (intervals) and their sounds will become familiar with practise. They are presented in a playful and engaging way that doesn’t cause frustration, but hopefully a little satisfaction along the way. This will lay the foundations in a fun and easy way, giving children the incentive and confidence to go on to a piano teacher for proper one-to-one lessons and be in a strong position to learn and make the most of them. The first piano lessons series gets them started, and the eBook although it does include a lot of the same activities, includes much more in-depth teaching support and resources. For children identification the keyboard, read musical notation, remember musical notation have great help. Once your order is shipped, you will be emailed the tracking information for your order’s shipment.
The first note in each bar is often the loudest and the bars help form the beat (rhythm) of the music. For each major scale there are major chords and for each minor scale there are minor chords. With these two types of chords it is possible to create an accompaniment, or harmony, to most tunes. Firstly, it is vital that the child shows a desire and interest in playing the piano, and is happy to sit and concentrate for a short time, say 15 minutes to start with.


Progress will be much faster, and they will be more likely to succeed and develop a real love of the instrument. When children first start learning the piano they need lots of repetition in order to develop an understanding and strengthen their fingers, so these activities and exercises are an excellent way to encourage them. You can choose your preferred shipping method on the Order Information page during the checkout process.
Scales are practised so that these 8 notes are familiar to your fingers when played in a piece. It is a lot easier if they can already read a little, so it is probably best to give that a head start, and not to bombard them with too much information all at once! The notes that are not filled in are long notes and are held for twice as long as the short ones. A good counting trick used by musicians is to add a sound for the notes you are not counting: for example, in bar 9, you could count "1-ta, 2-ta" for the four notes.
There are more notes in the scale than there are fingers on one hand, so it is useful to use more than one finger. When you have two phrases next to each other, there should be a slight pause between them - done by slightly shortening the last note of the first phrase. It also helps if they have strong little hands, although this can be improved with practise, if they have very small hands, it might be better to let them grow a bit! Notice how, in bar 9, the stems of these notes are joined together, and are thus played twice as fast as a normal filled in note. When you reach the fourth note on the way up turn your thumb (finger 1) under your other fingers to play it. On the way down you need to reverse the process and turn you finger 3 (the middle finger) over your thumb after you have played the note.
