- Hi, and welcome out to the second lesson
in the Do It Yourself Learn to Play Piano course.
Last time we talked about reading notes on the staff,
and this time we're going to
give you a little more practice
with what we learned last time.
Actually reading notes on the treble clef
and the bass clef.
Then after that I'll introduce
some other introductory subjects
before we get playing on the piano,
such as finger numbers.
With that said, let's get started.
Okay, so we're going to talk about finger numbers.
It's important to know your finger numbers,
because often in piano music
the music will tell you to play a certain note
with a certain finger.
So while this is a very simple subject,
it is important to go over.
So we have two hands,
and on each hand we have five fingers.
Now the important rule to remember
when counting finger numbers
is you always want to count from your thumb
to your pinkie.
Thumb no matter which hand you are talking about
is number one.
The next finger is going to be two,
three, four, and finger five.
That's the same with the left hand
and the right hand, thumb to pinkie.
Same thing.
One, two, three, four, five.
So remember thumbs are always going to be number one.
Pinkie's going to be number five,
and you always just count the fingers in between
pretty simple.
Now there is a little bit of confusion with this later on,
which I will explain once we get playing on the piano.
All right, and that's the finger numbers explanation.
Okay, so now that we know our lines and spaces
of the treble clef and bass clef,
we're going to do a little practice
just on the treble clef for now,
to make sure you get the idea and concepts.
So let's pull out our first example here.
Whenever you are looking at a note
you first want to ask yourself one of two questions.
The first one is, "Am I on treble clef or bass clef?"
Well I'd say we are on treble clef.
Remember treble clef is that fancy looking G.
And the second question you want to ask yourself is,
"Are you on a line or a space?"
Looking at this one, I would say
that we are on a line,
and specifically we're on that first line.
So, if you remember your lines of the treble clef,
are E, G, B, D, and F.
Always remember to count from the bottom line
to the top line.
I would say that this example over to the right here,
this is the first line,
so let's take a look over here again.
I would say that this note,
our first line here is an E.
So therefore when you see this
you know to play the note E.
All right, another example,
let's find one here.
I think this one's a good one.
Again, you want to ask yourself,
"Treble clef or bass clef?"
I would say treble clef.
And are you on a line or space for this one?
If you said line, then you are correct,
and specifically this one is on the
second line up from the bottom.
So you'll look over here with our paper,
and our second one up from the bottom
is going to be G.
All right, another example here.
I think this one is a good one.
Here you go, and this one
treble clef or bass clef?
It's say treble.
And this, is it on a line or a space?
If you said space you're correct.
Specifically, it's on that first space.
So we're actually going to be looking down here
at the spaces of the treble clef this time.
And you're going to look at the first one that we have
which is going to be F.
All right, another one.
I think this one's a good one for the next example.
So treble clef or base clef?
Of course, treble clef.
That's what we're working on right now.
And is this one on a line or a space?
I would say we're on a space,
and lets see, one, two,
we are on that third space up from the bottom.
So over here we're going to look at our paper.
One, two, three.
So that note there is going to be a C.
All right, a couple more.
So let' try this one.
Here we have this one.
Of course, treble clef.
This one I would say is on a line.
It's one, two, three,
that fourth line up from the bottom.
We're looking over here at our line on the treble clef.
That line is D,
so this note is going to be a D.
All right, last one.
Here we go, this one treble clef.
Space,
and it's going to be that top space from the bottom,
which as we know,
let's see, F, A, C, E.
So this note is going to be a E.
All right so there you have it,
a little bit of practice with
the treble clef and bass clef.
You can feel free to pick up a pack of flash cards
like the ones I have
off the internet or Amazon
anywhere you can find them.
Or I think there's a couple websites
online that can help you with note reading
that are really good resources.
I'll post links to those if I find them.
All right, so there you have it.
The lines and spaces of the treble clef.
Okay, so here we have the lines and spaces
of the bass clef again.
If you remember the lines are
G, B, D, F, and A.
And the spaces are A, C, E, G.
Knowing that we're going to practice
a little bit reading notes on the staff.
Here is our first example throw up.
There it is.
So like I said,
one of the first two questions
you want to ask yourself is one,
"What clef are you looking at?"
Well this one, since we're talking about bass clef.
This is definitely the bass clef symbol.
Funny looking comma with two dots after it.
If you remember what is the second question
you want to ask yourself.
And if you said, "Am I on a line or a space?",
that would be correct.
So here we are, we are on a line I would say.
Specifically we are on the first line.
We look over here to our lines and spaces.
So we're looking at lines.
So we're on that first line,
so that note is going to be a G.
Let's try another one.
So here we have it.
Bass clef,
and we're on a space.
We're on that first space.
So we're going to be looking over here,
spaces of the bass clef.
And oh, that's our note there.
So that's the first space,
so this note is an A.
Let's see here,
so think about it.
Treble clef or bass clef?
And then line or space?
So if you said bass clef, space,
you would definitely be correct.
And this on is on the second space
from the bottom.
Remember you always want to count from the bottom
to the top.
In this case the second space is going to be a C.
So therefore this note is C.
Another one here.
Here we go.
All right, so bass clef, line,
and we're on the third one up from the bottom.
So we're going to be looking here,
lines of the bass clef.
So this note is going to be D.
Feel free to pause the video at any time
if you need anymore,
couple more minutes to think about
each of these examples.
You can always rewind through parts of the video as well.
Let's try this one.
Here we go.
So think about it
for a second.
See if you can figure it out.
So I would say this one, bass clef.
Top space,
and so I know that this note is going to be a G.
Okay, last one.
Here we go.
Think about it for a second.
All right, so we have bass clef.
We are definitely on a line.
We're on that top line,
and let me see here.
There we go,
so we're going to be playing an A for this one.
So in future videos, once we get playing on the piano,
which should be pretty soon here.
I'll show you where on the keyboard
that these notes are actually played.
So there you have it,
the lines and spaces of the bass clef.
So there you have it,
lesson two out of the way.
We talked about some very simple things.
Just as a review.
We talked about finger numbers.
So take a look back at parts of the video
if you know you need some brushing up on that.
Like I said, very simple thing,
but very important to understand.
So make sure you review that,
and I gave you a little bit more
experience reading notes on the treble and bass clef,
on the staff.
Next lesson, we're going to talk about the staff
a little bit more.
I have a little bit more information
to divulge to you,
as well as finally finding notes on the piano.
So finally we're getting over to the keyboard.
We'll do that more and more every lesson,
and before you know it,
pretty soon probably next two to three lessons
we'll actually be playing examples on the keyboard.
So I hope you learned something.
If not, if this stuff is still too easy for you,
hang in there.
Like I said, things will,
I wanted to start from the very beginning,
and then get more complicated from there.
So everybody and kind of join in
and get on board.
Like I said, if you're looking for something
a little more complicated
just keep watching the videos.
I promise we will get there.
So like I said, I hope you learned something.
Hope you had a good time,
and I'll see you guys and girls next time.
Thank you.
