Welcome to the Learn Songs Section for Beginner Students!
If you are familiar with the layout of the piano and know how to read music notation, then it's time to put that knowledge into good use by playing some songs! You will start off with three recognizable songs, "Brother John", "London Bridge is Falling Down" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". Each song is accompanied by flash animations that show you which keys on the piano you need to press and how the song sounds like!
There are three flash animations for each song. The first animation shows notes of the right hand melody, the second animation shows notes of the left hand chords, and the last animation shows notes from both hands being played together.
|Lesson 6||Brother John|
|Lesson 7||London Bridge is Falling Down|
|Lesson 8||Twinkle Twinkle Little Star|
