Music Theory (posted by James K. Taylor, 12 Jan 2024, 02:40)

Since no one has asked any questions on these free piano lessons, I guess I will post no more for the time being.
Keith: it would be helpful there was a way to indicate how many times a song was listened to on the CMD.

Piano Lesson 2 (posted by James K. Taylor, 7 Sep 2023, 02:11)

We are now going to work on finger numbers. These numbers will help when you start reading music.

Reach your right arm out in front of you (with the back of the hand towards your face).

Your right thumb is one or we can call it R1.
Your pointer finger is R2
Your middle finger is R3
Your 4th finger (or ring finger) is R4
Your little finger is R5

Reach your left arm out in front of you (with the back of the hand toward your face)
Your left thumb is L1
Your pointer finger on your left hand is L2
Your middle finger is L3
Your ring finger is L4
Your little finger is L5

Quiz
wiggle R3
wiggle L5
wiggle L1
wiggle R2

Let's find middle C on the piano. As you look at a keyboard, you will see sets of two black keys and sets of three black keys.

Very important- the note C is a white key just to the left of every set ot two black keys. Now-play all the C's on the piano (going from lowest to highest and highest to lowest). Low is usually to the left side of the piano and notes there are usually played with the left hand. High notes are on the right side of the keyboard and are usually played with the right hand.

Now: find the C key that appears to be in the middle of the keyboard.
Starting on middle C and with R1 play 123454321.
