Piano practise

Beginning to read music

If you have been learning with me for a little while, we have likely been learning to play many songs by ear, which means, using your auditory sense to associate the sound of a short phrase with the action and sensation of playing the keys on the piano.

Now it is time to do a little note reading, which helps us learn to interpret the sight of “dots on the page”, which means learning to see the dots and play the correct notes on the keyboard.  The best way to do this is simple repetition.
