Video Tutorials to help you at home, more videos to come!
Start with this:
ALL VIDEO TUTORIALS
Having a visual representation of the keys on a piano is helpful for understanding the interval relationships between notes, accidentals (#’s and b’s), as well as how to move between notes like E-F and B-C.
BEGINNING MUSIC THEORY
Find notes on the piano and notate them in a grand staff. Learn about octave registers, clefs, and ledger lines.
There are 15 major scales. Here we discuss how to use the “order of sharps” and “order of flats” to find the notes in each scale. With these videos and some time and practice, you can work towards having all 15 memorized!
