Keyboard Lessons Made Simple

By Simone V. Manasse

The desire to make music is a way for a person to show that he wants to be in harmony with his soul. The keyboard is now the favorite of many people because of its portability and its use as a substitute to a piano or organ. A person who wants to reach his objective of learning to play this instrument will benefit from keyboard lessons and gets the chance to widen his world as he learns new abilities. Below are some amazing insights about learning how to play the keyboard.

Basic knowledge in music and its technical aspects is not a prerequisite in taking keyboard lessons: these are indeed included and discussed through the course of the study. Some music lessons learned in grade school can be a great help in studying the keyboard although it is not a requirement.

As opposed to what most people think about the difficulty of learning to play any instrument for the first time, playing the keyboard is actually easier to understand compared to other instruments. The beginner won’t have a problem with setting up the keyboard because it is digitally tuned, unlike the guitar which you have to tune manually before playing it.

The keyboard is easier to learn than other instruments such as the violin. The violin is a fretless music instrument, which means the user would have to be familiar with the “feel” of the violin and learn primarily by ear. The keyboard, however, have black and white keys, and each key is designated to make a sound that is of the note it signifies.

The beginner will be introduced to basic principles at the start of the keyboard lesson. An understanding of the difference between a whole step and a half step will be part of the initial lesson, which basically gives an overview of how a keyboard is used.

For every white key, there corresponds one letter from A to G and black keys correspond to a sharp or flat. Except for some points where two white keys lie side by side, there are black keys in between two white keys.

If split into sections, the keyboard will have sets of black keys in twos and in threes. The white key to the left of a set of two black keys signifies a C note. The notes D, E, F, G, A, and B correspond the next right white keys to the C key respectively.

You get one octave if you include the white key after B, which is again C. The student’s compliance and dedication to practice regularly, applying what he has learned will dictate the outcome of the keyboard tutorials after mastering the basic principles.

Music is said to be human soul manifested. Contrary to popular belief, taking keyboard lessons to be able to create and produce music is not complicated at all. In fact, music is part of human nature; and as it is innate in humans, the realization of music in one’s life need not be difficult to achieve.

If you are a piano enthusiast and you would love to take some keyboard lessons, but you just do not quite know how to start, simply browse through the Internet for it. You will be surprised, at the same time delighted that there are multitudes of available resources online that could help you find the best keyboard lessons online.
