Welcome to the Core Piano Course. I'm so excited you've chosen to begin this journey with me! Complete the course one video at a time - remember to go through the exercises at your own pace. I recommend you spend 15 minutes a day minimum and do your homework with care!
Note that for some of the classes you will find additional resources to support you. Not all classes have course materials - because the games and quizzes are in the videos in a "pause and test yourself" method.
Notes on the Piano CDGA
Let's start from very basics with my formula to easily remember which notes are where on the piano. You will love the easy cartoon metaphors and never forget where you are on the keys! We will first start with 4 notes.
Improvise on CDGA
You will have fun improvising using the notes you have just learned, playing over the accompaniment I have created for you. You can download the Mp3 and practice over it. Follow the instructions on the video!
Rhythm Homework #1
Rhythm Homework 1:
Create different rhythms for 2 measures based on the following time signatures using one note on a staff. Keep it simple but make sure each measure is different.:
Then try to clap or play these - you can use a metronome to keep the pulse consistent! You can use the staff paper attached or draw your own! Make sure to put the clef and the time signature!
Rhythm Homework #2
Rhythm Homework 2: Write your very first composition on sheet music!
Write a small composition of 4 bars using different rhythms with the notes we learned on one staff! Make sure each bar adds up to the same value, and make sure to use a clef and a time signature. Use the manuscript attached.
Ode To Joy Introduction
