'D' the Dude! Finding the note D
D is a great way to find the notes on the piano! Yes it really is. So you look at the piano keyboard and think...I wish I knew how to play it. Where do I begin. Well, first you have to know that there is a musical alphabet. It is simply this:
A, B, C, D, E, F & G.
This pattern of notes repeats all across the piano. When I think of D, I look for the two black keys and imagine that this is where D the dog lives. From the D, I can work out where all the other notes go. E will always be after D and C will always be before it. Take a look at this fun video. We have thrown in a bit of beatboxing with Jay and some piano with Patrick. You can make up your own song to help you to remember.
Now for the weekly FQ - that's Fun-Keys quiz if you are new to our You Tube clips.
Q: Where does the D live?
