Music Theory: Bar Lines & 3 Black Keys


The first priority for beginning music lessons is for the student to notice the structure and patterns of the piano keys. To help them learn the placement of Middle C Katie put a yellow circle sticker on this key. This is a good reference point. Then she had them find the set of 3 black keys to the right of Middle C and then to the left. She then showed them a simple sheet of music and we pointed out the bar lines which begin and end measures. The boys then played a simple song on the sets of 2 black keys that are left and right of Middle C with 4 quarter notes.
