Memories on the piano: finding your way around the keyboard

Before discovering the musical world of Memories, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the piano keyboard. To do so, take a look at the image below:

The name of the notes on a piano keyboard.

Look closely at the diagram of the piano keyboard above. You’ll notice that the black keys follow a regular pattern: two keys, then three, and this is repeated along the entire length of the keyboard.

To start exploring the notes, concentrate on the groups of two black keys. The white key immediately to the left of each group is the C note. In this way, you can easily locate all the C notes on your keyboard. Use this method to identify the other notes based on the groups of black keys.

Playing notes to the left of the keyboard takes you down into the lower register, while playing to the right takes you up into the upper register.

This is the key to mastering Memories. Once you’ve mastered these concepts, practice regularly to familiarize yourself with all the notes on the piano. If you find it difficult at first, associate each note with a specific color to make it easier to identify. You should also learn to recognize the intervals between notes, which will make it easier to find them.

Memories on the piano: play the song with both hands

Advice

Playing the piano simultaneously with both hands can be a challenge for many pianists, especially beginners. Coordinating the movements of both hands while maintaining a precise rhythm can seem complex. Fortunately, the La Touche Musicale app can help you progress at your own pace, offering invaluable support.

To overcome this obstacle, practice exercises in which both hands play different scores at different rhythms. This will go a long way to improving coordination between the two hands.

To make further progress, we recommend recording yourself playing or playing in front of people. This will enable you to identify and correct certain errors.

Remember, patience is important, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Fun and enjoyment are essential to progress.
