If you consider yourself a beginner and have never learned to read music before, then this lesson is for you. This is part 1 of 4 total videos. The other three parts will be exclusive to the LessonsOnTheWeb Academy. Reading music is essential for someone to learn how to play piano. With some new techniques and equipment, I was able to put together this video to best describe how to read music on the Treble Clef.

Notes:
The staff is made of five lines and four spaces in between those lines. A note can fall on a line or space and depending on which line or space will tell you which note to play and where on the piano to play that note. You can tell a note is on a line if a line is going directly through a note. You can tell a note is on a space if the note is between two spaces. The treble clef is also known as the G clef because the center of the clef points to the line G. The Treble clef is usually played with the right hand and contains notes mostly to the right of middle C. The lines of the treble clef from the bottom to the top are E, G, B, D and F. The spaces of the treble clef from the bottom to the top are F.A. C and E. If you put the lines and spaces together, it goes in music alphabetical order E, F, G, A, B, C, D, E, F. Being able to identify where notes are on both the keyboard and staff is very important in learning to read music and playing the piano. Make sure to practice note reading daily until you have it mastered.

Lesson Notes
Practicing for the appropriate amount of time is very important, but slightly less important than remaining focused on the tasks at hand. If you daydream and start playing your favorite pop tunes instead of what you should be playing, your efforts will be greatly diminished.
How long should you be practicing?
15-30 minutes if you are just starting out, or if you are just looking to play a few simple songs
30 minutes – 1 hour if you are looking to get better and play some more substantial pieces like Fur Elise.
1 hour – 2 hours – This will get you some good results
2 hours – 4 hours – Is the professional level of practice.

What should you be practicing
1. Warm up, should take up to a 3rd of your practice time
– Scales, Arpeggios, Hanon, Czerny,
2. One to three songs you are working on. Start from the problem areas. Do not start form the beginning all the time.

Plan for success
Over the next month, make a commitment to spend time everyday practicing. Think about your goals as a musician to determine how much time to practice. You can make good results putting in an hour every day. Set a timer and don’t get up from the piano until the timer is finished. Come up with a practice routine based on what we talked about in today’s lesson (warm up, 1 to 3 songs).
Optional: Make a recording of your playing on day 1, then on day 31 record yourself again to notice the difference.
Come back to the comments in this lesson to let me know how you did, or if you have any questions along the way.
Good luck!

How to Play Piano With Both Hands
https://goo.gl/4fnBGG

General Tips on Playing With Both Hands
1. Learn the piece, example, etc hands separate first, then put hands together.
2. Play SLOWLY
3. When first learning to play hands together, avoid examples with complicated rhythms.

1. Scales
Scales are a good way for beginners to develop dexterity and coordination when playing keyboard with both hands. This is because playing scales involves playing notes in synch with one another. Usually scales are played with the same rhythm in both hands, so no worries trying to play different rhythms and concentrating on notes at the same time.
Where should you start? Start with the C Major scale and learn it hands separate. Then try playing the scale ascending very slowly with both hands. Once you are able to play the scale ascending, learn the scale descending. Then play the scale ascending and descending. Learn 1 scale a week until you can play all the major scales slowly. Then gradually increase the tempo over weeks to achieve greater speed.
Here is a scale exercise. Start with C Major and play up the scale with half notes in the right hand while playing whole notes in the left hand. Then do the same but with half notes in the left hand and whole notes in the right had.
2. Hanon
Are great for developing two handed dexterity between both hands. These are for playing in parallel meaning you are playing the same intervals at the same time. Try learning one a day or one a week until you learn them all. Play them slow at first then over weeks gradually increase the tempo.

3. Czerny
These are highly recommended for practice playing different rhythms and pitches for each hand.

In today’s lesson, I am going to share with you 10 easy hacks that will help you learn piano pieces faster. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player, you will find these hacks helpful. Getting in micro practice sessions is a really helpful tip I can give you because not only will you get more practice time, your brain will better pick up the information in a shorter session. Obviously, you also want to become familiar with music theory. You should be able to identify and play scales, chords, and arpeggios. Learning to read intervals can also help since you can use them to read music much faster. If you are serious about learning how to play piano, you want to watch the whole lesson to learn all of the hacks.
