Lessons 1-3 above taught you some basic skills. Now, we're ready to move on to your first song. Here is how it works: First I teach you the right hand, then the left hand, and finally both hands together. 

The videos contain the sheet music in them, so you won't need a PDF; however, if you still would like sheet music, below each video there is a download button. Good luck!

It's time to learn about note lengths. You have probably noticed how some notes are black and other notes are white. Take a look at the diagram below and try memorize how long each note lasts.


Here is another illustration.


Now you are ready to move on to your second song.

30 years of teaching has taught me one thing—If you rush and don't spend the time it takes to learn each song properly, you will suddenly hit a brick wall where everything suddenly become difficult. Professional musicians practice a song until they can play it by heart.


I encourage you not to start on Song 3 until you can play both Song 1 & 2 effortlessly.  Did you forget Song 1? Now would be a good time to review Song 1. Once you have mastered both songs, you are ready to move on to song 3.

I encourage you to take your time. Don't rush it. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. It's important that you stay with it until you can play each song fluently, without effort. Try to memorize the songs. Then try playing them with your eyes closed. Playing with your eyes closed helps you develop muscle memory. When you are completely comfortable playing your first three songs, you are ready to move on to your 4th song. Good luck!

It's time to revisit notes. You may feel like you don't need to learn the notes, because you think you can learn the songs by just watching the videos, but you know... notes are actually super helpful. For one thing, the notes tell you how long a tone lasts. Check out the diagram below. You see how a whole note lasts 4 beats, a half note lasts 2 beats, and a quarter notes lasts 1 beat, and so on. That is very helpful information when you are playing the piano. Good luck!
