How to Play Piano Lesson 3: How to Read Sheet Music 3
Finding Note on the Keyboard
The key to reading notes on the staff and finding them on piano is knowing where to find notes in relation to the black keys. Notice how the piano keyboard has a pattern of two and three black keys. C is located to the left of the group of two black keys on the piano. D is in between the two black keys. E is to the right of the two black keys. F is to the right of the group of three black keys, G is between the first two black keys in the group of 3, A is between the right two in the group of three and B is to the right of the group of three. It is also useful to know how to say your music alphabet both forwards and backwards since that will make it easier in finding note on the piano.
A ledger line is a line added to the staff to read notes that are above or below the music staff. The most important ledger line notes to remember are the ones for middle C. Middle C for the treble clef is the first ledger line below the staff and for bass clef it is the first ledger line above the staff.
