You don’t need to know how to read music to learn to play keyboards. This video gives you a player’s-eye view, so all you have to do is play along. And rather than make you wait while I explain preliminary information, my approach is to get you playing immediately and then explain what you need to know along the way. So set up your keyboard and put the video where you can comfortably see it, and be prepared to be making music within less than a minute after we get started--even if you've never touched a keyboard before.
The video contains seven lessons that are between 5 and 10 minutes long. By the time you’ve finished watching each lesson once, you should be well on your way to mastering a simple but beautiful piece. And as you learn to play, you’ll also learn to identify notes and get a basic introduction to technique, rhythm, harmony, and chords.
The best way to tell if the video is right for you is to watch Lesson 1 below:
You can play the pieces on any keyboard (including an acoustic piano) and you can use any sound you like. Good luck as you start your keyboard journey!
