By Amirah H. Phanord

You need to be able to understand easy piano sheet music to be able to learn how to play the piano. There are many ways to do this, but the most basic method is for you to know the elements and notations that are used within a particular sheet music. Once you get a good grip of the sheet music theory and application, you will be ready to learn to play the piano thoroughly.

Piano is one of the most well-known instruments to date. It is present in many gatherings and social functions that are mostly formal. When you learn to play the piano as a hobby, you also learn how to play the keyboard or organ since the use is basically the same and only the components vary. If you are familiar with the following items, you will have an easy time playing any musical instrument, most especially the piano.

The Staff

Just like a standard writing notebook, a music sheet also uses lines to guide the composer where to place or write the notes. The staff has five horizontal lines with two vertical lines on the ends. The notes of a sheet music are placed on the lines of the staff or in the spaces between these lines.

The spaces between the lines stand for the notes F, A, C, and high E from the bottom and up. The lines startingfrom the bottom, on the other hand, signify the notes E, G, B, D, and high F, respectively in the easy piano music sheet.

There are certain notations which determine how the music proceeds and they are mostly found at the far left portion of the staff. Two clefs symbolizing the standard notes of lower and higher range; these are the F clef or Bass clef and the G clef or Treble clef respectively. Percussion sounds are symbolized by a staff with no clef.

In order to determine when the music can start or end playing, the staff is cut into measures that divides the piece into sections.

The Time Signature

The time signature tells how the notes are being played and timed; and this is found on the leftmost portion of the staff. It is shown as a fraction, where one number is on top of another. The upper number denotes the number of beats in a measure and the lower number represents the length of each beat. Example, in a time measure, there are three beats per measure and a quarter note is equal to one count.

The Notes

Notes are named as whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, etc. This tells the player how long the note must be played, representing changes between notes. The octave where the note is believed to be is dependent on the pitch of the note. Once you have mastered the use of notes, it will be easier to read sheet music for easy piano playing.

If you are truly a piano aficionado, you will right away understand that there is truly such a thing as easy piano. There are a lot of obtainable resources in the Internet that can help you understand how to learn the piano the easy way; all you need to do is research for such available resources online.
