how to play piano lesson 2 understanding music theory:
Middle c is written on the added lines between the Bass Staff and Treble Staff. If middle ‘C’ is closer to the Treble Staff, it must be played by right hand. When middle ‘C’ is closer to the Bass Staff it is played by the left hand. It is recommended tat students must practice playing middle ‘C’ by both the thumbs, First by right hand thumb and then by left hand thumb over and over again. It is very important. When you start reading music, it will play vital role.
Note there is drill for you. Just look at the pic of Grand Staff below and try to draw it yourself, then write note on the small added line. See the pic above:
Reading and writing up from the middle C
Now write the next note under the fifth line (the last line below). Remember the musical alphabets on Treble Clef are written from below. ‘D’ is written on space under Treble Clef.
E-note is written on the first line of Treble Clef as shown above.
‘F’ note is written in the first space of Treble Clef. See the pic above
‘G’ note is written on the second line of the Treble Clef. See the pic above:
‘A’ note is written in the second space of Treble Clef. See the pic above:
‘B’ note is written on the third line of the Treble Clef.
The students will be much benefited by this drill because they will write and read the notes themselves. So they will learn two arts i.e. writing music and reading music. As we proceed further we will learn more. Through experience I can assure that if you follow my instructions carefully you will learn in amazingly short time. It will help understand the music theory..
