Welcome to the Beginner Piano Lessons Section!
If you have an understanding of the piano layout and key names, then you are ready to dive in and start playing some music!
This section contains five subsections, each geared towards specific subjects on piano playing. Here's what you'll learn in each subsection.
Learn Songs: Here you will learn three well-known songs, "Brother John", "London Bridge is Falling Down", and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". This should give you a good introduction of how most songs are put together!

Improvisation: Learn some new patterns that you can use to help make the songs you have learned in the songs section more interesting and fun!
