Fur Elise is one of the more melodious classical songs and a favorite with most music students. Though most beginner students attempt this song, but only a handful are able to play it and that too only the first section of the song which is more melodious and moves at a comparatively slow tempo compared to the next part of the song. Another reason for most beginners to like this song is because of the fact that Fur Elise is based on the A minor song.
This song is so beautiful that you would wish that you could read piano notes directly from the music sheet rather than having have to stop the video every second, repeat the section, and? learn it that way. For those who know how to read notes and have taken few months of piano lessons, they will find it easier to play.
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. Anybody who has learnt to play the piano even for a few months, on hearing this beautiful song, wants to know How to Play Fur Elise on Piano. That means barring one or two black keys, you only need to use the white keys to play this song. If you have access to the original sheet music, it will be better if you can simplify the song to begin with, or you may just use the easier version of fur Elise.


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.
