About This Class

In this class you will learn the very basics of piano playing. You don't need any prior experience in music or in piano playing to follow this course. You do need a piano, this can be either an acoustic or a digital piano.

In the class you will be learning the 7 keys of the piano and how to find them, some basic musical terms, fingering, basic rhythm and I'll help you put everything together so that you can start learning all of the songs that I've uploaded for you in the Project section.*

* You can only see/download these songs on your computer, they don't show on the mobile version.

For this video we're keeping everything in the middle of the piano, so the 7 keys that I discuss in the first video are located right in front of you when you sit in the middle of the piano. 

I've attached the images of the 2 songs that I use as a demonstration in the videos so you can use those to follow along if you like.
