Left Hand Fingers for Piano
Welcome to another quick guide to playing piano for preschoolers. We have a great vid and a Fab Funsheet for you to download as always.
This week, we learn how to play the notes on the piano using our left hand.
C💚 Do. B💛 Ti. A💗 La. G💜 So. F🍊 Fa.
✋ Our left hand has 5 fingers and we call our thumb
Finger number 1! Finger number 5 is our pinky!
🎹 Put your hand on the keyboard like a spider.
Make sure finger number 1 (thumb) is on C💚 and finger number 5 (pinky) is on F🍊 .
🎹 Now play the keys with:
Finger number 1 - C 💚 Do
Finger number 2 - B 💛 Ti
Finger number 3 - A 💗 La
Finger number 4 - G 💜 So
Finger number 5 - F 🍊 Fa
☝Press each key one at a time. Play slowly and smoothly until you have a nice easy motion and you can play each key evenly. Remember some fingers will need a little more help.
