Get Familiar with the Notes

Music notes might seem strange, especially at first glance. However, that can change when you learn the specific meanings highlighted by each note. The music notes are the ABCs of music, and as such, can help you to play any type of musical instruments, once you understand them. So, how do you get started? By the basics of the music, which is Do – Re – Mi – Fa – So – La – Ti – Do.  

Get Familiar with the Keys

Now that you are familiar with the notes, it is time to get familiar with the keyboard. So, start by knowing the black keys, and the sounds associated with that. Then you can move on to the white keys and the sounds associated with that.  

Playing the Basic Note

Once you are familiar with the keys, it is time to play the basic notes. This is the best way to learn piano, without any issues. So, you need to try your hand at playing the notes Do – Re – Mi – Fa – So – La – Ti – Do. Once you have learned which keys to use, you can go ahead and try playing an easy tune, like Jingle Bells. In order to play that, you need to tune it up and then use both the treble and clef. Also, you would need to time it, so that your notes play smoothly. 

Timing for Music Notes

So, once you are accustomed to the notes, you need to time the beats properly to have perfect music. Learning to play with the beats is the easiest way to learn piano. So, make sure that you time your beats like this 

  • For whole notes, you have four beats (1 – 2 – 3 – 4) 
  • For half notes, you have two beats (1 – 2) 
  • For quarter notes, you have one beat (1) 

Smooth up the process and then merge the two different notes once you have gotten the hang of beats. Remember, only when you can merge two notes smoothly will the music be smoother. 

You’ll need practice to make your notes sound smoother and better. Practicing is the key to perfecting the playing of notes and the timing. Only with practice can you become a good piano player in a short time, even if you don’t have a teacher. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and start with these first steps to learn piano! It’s easy, so you shouldn’t have any issue, but if you do, reach out and share your experience.
