More Tips for New Players...
A healthy way to practice learning notes and rhythms are to practice with simple
patterns that slowly allow your mind and fingers to adjust to the new skills. Try just one hand at
a time focusing on slowly, patiently playing through simple exercises. For your right hand, try
placing your thumb on Middle C and your other fingers on adjacent keys.
Then, in steady quarter notes play C, C, C, C, D, D, D, D, E, E, E, E and so on.
Repeat this exercise, but with eighth notes. Then, switch hands and repeat, beginning with your
left hand’s thumb on Middle C.
