Find Out The Names Of Electronic Keyboard Piano Keys

Have you ever wondered what all those keys on a piano are called? Every black and white key has its own name. You may think as a beginner, that you dont need to know what every single key is called and you would be right, but there is an easy way to remember the names of every single white key on a piano keyboard.

Whatever keyboard you are using, the easiest way to memorize the note names is not to look at the whole keyboard but at just one part of the keyboard, as there are only seven white notes names to learn. Once you have learned what these notes are called you will know what every white note on a keyboard is called.

So here are the seven white notes you should learn. C, D, E, F, G, A and B. Certain teachers would rather introduce these letters alphabetically, that is starting with A rather than C. This is just a preference, I favour starting on C because when you start to play the piano C, is going to be an important reference note and most beginners wont even play A on their first lesson, were as C will be an important first lesson note.

Once you have memorized the notes you will know what every white note on a piano is, well almost. We need to match the note names to the actual notes on the piano. As mentioned above, we are going to look at a section of the piano keyboard, but first I want you to look at the whole keyboard, just this once. If you dont have a piano or a keyboard, you can easily find a picture on the internet of a piano or keyboard. Throughout the whole keyboard you should see a definite pattern of two black notes and three black notes and then again and again. Now, we want to pick one of these patterns or sections. I recommend you look to about the middle of the keyboard and find two black notes. The white note just before the two black notes is called C, now moving to the right, play the very next white note, this is called D and then the next white note to the right is called E. So where you see two black notes together on the keyboard the three white notes in that section are called C, D and E.

The next shape you are looking for is three black notes together and these notes are surrounded by four white notes. Starting from the left again these notes are called F, G, A and B. Thats it; you have learned all the white notes on a keyboard. The two black note and three note shapes are repeated on the whole keyboard and so are the notes. With a little bit of practice you should be able to find any note on the piano. Just remember that every two black note shapes are surrounded by C, D and E, and every three note shape is surrounded by F, G, A and B.
