Arrow Piano Class Help? - October 29th 2009, 02:24 AM

I know there is someone out there that can play the piano very well. I'm taking my first piano class in college and plan on taking several more... It's just getting hard for me.

Can anyone tell me everything they know about the G and f major scales? I need someone else to describe it besides my teacher.

G Major has just one sharp, which is F sharp. When playing the scale, all Fs will be sharp

F Major has one flat, which is B flat. Same thing, when plaing it all the Bs will be B flats.

Do you need to know more than that?

I guess I'm not very musical. I have a problem memorizing the keys, and timing of notes is hard for me for some reason. I don't have great logic in the area of math, and possibly piano.

Basically, to play G major, you start on G, and play each white note until you reach the next G, with the exception being that you don't play white F, you play F sharp. Same thing for F Major.

As for timing, most scales are 1 crotchet beat notes, each played one after another, unless there are longer notes or rests inbetween. To keep time, you can count "1,2,3,4" or use a metronome.

I'm sure you'll get the hang of it
