Lesson 2: How to Play Piano | G Major Scale

Hello my fellow musicians,

This week, we continue with our piano lessons. Now that you know your musical alphabet, your correct fingering, and how to play a C Major scale, it’s time to move on to the black keys.

The black keys represent all the sharp and flat notes. If you play middle C and then go up a whole step to the next white key, you’ll play a D natural. But what is that black note in between C and D? It’s the half step pitch called C sharp (C#). You may also call this note a D flat (Db). In the video I explain why this key (along with others) have two names and when to call it by it’s proper name.

I recommend practicing daily in small amounts (15-30 minutes) over once or twice a week for 2 hours. The constant movements will make your hands more loose and you will gain accuracy and speed.

As always, I’m here to help. If you’re having trouble or have a question, just ask.

Happy Practicing!

-Michael
