SAMPLE PAGE FROM EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER

                    

Below you'll find a sample page from EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER. It differs slightly from the online piano on which you can play a bit of the song online. The online version is necessarily simplified to fit the small keyboard available online.

This book includes indications for both hands, (RH for right hand, LH for left hand) and is more complex than any of our other books, but after all, you are playing much more complex music. 

First of all, you'll note that there are indications for "fingers," which means that you'll need to assign numbers to your fingers, as all pianists do, in order to navigate the more complex music. Thumbs are numbered 1, then index fingers are numbered 2, until all the fingers have been numbered, the last being the little finger, which is numbered 5.

The finger indications are only a suggestion of what you should use: we suggest that you first try the piece many times using any fingers, until you get the idea. Then, when you have familiarized yourself with the notes, you will want to start using the fingering. Remember, music is really learned in three stages: 1: learn the notes: 2: learn the fingering; 3: learn the rhythm, or timing.

You'll also see indications for stickers that don't appear in our other books, such as the 7 (underlined seven) seen above. In fact, this book requires more stickers in order to play the more complex music. The additional stickers are added to the stickers you've already applied using any of our other books. 

It's easy to apply the stickers to your piano or electronic keyboard, and we include full, easy to understand directions for doing this. You'll be playing the great masterpieces of classical music right away!

I play Mozart, too!Also note that each bar (or square) of music is numbered (the numbers inside the square boxes) for easy reference to the extensive notes and commentary which are provided to guide you as you learn the music.

The music of Bach's Prelude #1 is presented EXACTLY as it appears in sheet music versions, that is, NOTHING has been simplified or altered or arranged. You will play the exact notes of the entire piece that Bach wrote 250 years ago!

The pieces presented in this book are generally introduced to children when they have mastered several basic areas: 

1. Piano pieces by number on the white keys (There is a section included in EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER to teach you this.)

2. Black keys of the piano (sharps and flats) (There is a section included in EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER to teach you this.)
