How can I learn to play piano by myself
Welcome now to the very first assignment in the Do-It-Yourself Learn to Play Piano series. Today we’re just going to be talking about some exceedingly preparatory subjects to get you started, for those of us who might not have that melodic or musical background.
My memories of learning was listening to my uncles play the piano at church and observing how kids at my age 7 years were going to piano lessons.Up to then i had a learnt a few tunes at home by myself but getting my family members teach but the first step is getting a piano or keyboard at home.
I was excited when I went to my first piano lesson and I met allot of my school/church friends there.
The first lessons books I was given were
I continued to used all the other series book 1 to book 6 with classical training through the grades of Trinity and Royal Schools Of music.But these early years of learning sit on the piano and later learning the proper techniques of hand position all started from being comfortable of playing around.
The notes being weighted can be difficult if you are young now these days with guided LED lights on the keyboard you can learn very quickly on a The One Smart Piano

How To Read The Notes
What we’re gonna principally be talking about today is how to learn how to read music on the staff, and what the staff is all about. So, with that enunciated, let’s get started shall we?
All notes are here, so here we have the musical staff. An important thing be informed about the melodic notes is that it’s made up of five notes on the line: one, two, three, four and five.
And four notes in the spaces: one, two, three and four.
Now another important thing to know is that our notes are able to fall on a line or a space, and is dependent on which of these lines or space, will tell you what to observe to play it and where on the keyboard to play that note.
Now in a few seconds I’ll show you how to read all the notes on all staff member Treble and Bass Staff
All right, so before I teach you how to read those notes on all staff members, I’d like to point out two immediate occasions.
The first thing is this one, this be the treble clef mark. The treble clef is usually played with the right hand,
If you think about it the right hand on the keyboard is generally played up at the higher purpose of the keyboard where the indicates higher in pitching are located, thus the word treble clef.
And the next one I want to show you be the bass clef.
The bass clef is often played with the left hand down on the lower end of the forte-piano, thus the appointed name bass clef.
All right, so now I’m going to teach you how to read tones on all staff members. And the easiest method I’ve found to do this is to memorize both the lines and spaces for both the treble clef and the bass clef.
Now depending on which clef you’re talking about, the lines and spaces will be slightly different. So it’s important to memorize the lines and spaces for both clefs.
So for the treble clef, the lines of the treble clef are: E, G, B, D and F.
Now I’ve come up with a little saying that might help you out with memorizing this, and it’s,
Every Good Bunny Deserves Fudge.
Now the first word of each of these oaths will tell you the lines of the treble clef. So, E for Every, G for Good, B for Bunny, D for Deserves and F for Fudge.
So, E, G, B, D and F.
Now we’ll talk about the gaps/spaces of the treble clef.
The notes of the treble clef are: F, A, C and E. Now I don’t have a speaking to memorize this one, only because this one going to happen to trance a certain word.
And of course that message is FACE. So again, F, A, C and E. Now you can feel free to pause this video at any time to look this over and perhaps write it down to memorize it.
And next we’ll talk about the lines and gaps of the bass clef. OK, so now we have the lines and spaces of the bass clef. An important thing I envisioned I should mention, that I forgot to mention in the previous division, was that whenever you’re trying to figure out the lines or cavities for a clef, that you want to be counting from the bottom of the staff to the top of the staff.
So, we have, for the lines of the bass clef: G, B, D, F, and A. Or as I like to say, Good Bunnies Deserve Fudge Always. So, G for Good, B for Bunnies, D for Deserve, F for Fudge, and A for Always.
Now we’ll be talking here about the spaces of the bass clef.
The rooms of the bass clef are A, C, E and G. Or, All Cows Eat Grass. And remember that whenever we’re trying to figure out the lines and spaces, we’re always going to be weighing from the bottom to the top of the staff.
If you do it the other way round, unfortunately you’ll get the bad tones. So I thought that was an important thing to mention. So there you have it, that be the lines and openings of the treble and bass clef.
All right, so here we have the melodic alphabet. Another fairly easy subject to understand but it is important to know.
The musical alphabet
The musical alphabet starts with A, and be applicable to G, and then it reiterates.
So, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, A, B,
and then it would keep going C, D, E, F, G, A.
So you might just wanna practice knowing what the melodic alphabet is. A to G, and then it echoes. You too want to practice saying it backwards.
Now I’ll explain why this is once we start playing on the forte-piano a little down below more.
So you want to be able to go: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, A, B, A, G, F, E, D, C, B, A.
So when you’re learning to dallied the forte-piano, you will be an ultimate professional at the first seven letters of the alphabet, forwards and backwards. So, like I suggested, an easy subject to understand, but it is definitely worth knowing about.
All right, so we have thus concluded our very first instruction. A speedy review of things we talked about in this lesson: The first thing we talked about was the musical staff and that the musical organization, if you recollect, is made up of five lines and four spaces in between those staff lines.
And depending on which way or playing a notes falls on will tell you which character notation to represent, and where on the piano to play it.
We too talked about the treble clef and bass clef, and how to read specific tones depending on which clef you’re talking about, by memorizing the lines and rooms for each.
