Pre lesson one - finding middle C!

Finding middle C.

For those that are completely new to the piano, before our very first lesson, we need to able to find middle C. Middle C is located in the middle of the piano, left of the two black keys. There are many C's on the piano and all of which are left of the two black keys, but you need to find the one in the middle. 

Good luck! 

Lesson one homework

Don't worry, if you're struggling with some of the rhythms, please get in touch. We've not put a video on this week as we would like to see if you can start to read the music. 

Good luck, but if you're still struggling, we are more than happy to help! 

Lesson Three Homework

By now you should be a wizz at the notes C to G!
