In What Way is Piano Different from Other Instruments?
Piano was developed in the way that was different from other instruments. You may see that while some instruments you play in one clef only, in piano, you have to play two. These clefs are called the bass clef, which you play with your left hand, and treble clef, which you play with your right hand. In addition to this, you have pedals. Pedals, you may have seen, are the little paddles that stick out from the bottom of the piano. There are three different pedals, while on other instruments, you don't have any pedals! These pedals give the keys that are being played a more unique sound. One example being that they can be played as a more longer, smoother tone.
What are some things I have to set a goal for when playing piano?
When playing the piano, you may want to acquire some goals that will be needed. First, you will have to be extremely patient. Like any other instrument, piano takes time to learn. You will also have to memorize your notes, for they are what makes up piano music! There are 88 keys on a piano, and you will have to know each one when you see it, but this is not as hard as it looks. The basic scale is C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C. From there, you just keep repeating it when going up the piano keys, and going backwards when going down the piano keys. Another goal you will have to accomplish is to PRACTICE. You can't be lazy if you decide to play the piano, but you must have confidence and practice whenever you can!
Here is a game I created myself to give you a basic point on how a piano works. If you follow the directions carefully, you'll get the hang of it!
