Piano Lesson 8
C Major Scale, Piano Practice, Tetrachord, Rhythmic Patterns
Piano lesson 8 is the second of two free lessons offered on this site. It covers the following
topics: new Treble clef notes A, B (first octave) and C (second octave), C Major scale, tetrachord(s), rhythmic
patterns, and a new melody for practicing. This piano lesson, along with the first piano lesson, will give you a
clear idea and understanding of what you are going to learn in the complete piano course. The course includes all
22 piano lessons and covers all basic music fundamentals, as well
as all necessary and important topics of piano instruction: from essential piano skills such as piano layout and
basic music notation, to chords, scales, rhythm and meter, music theory, and essential principles of piano
technique. The course will teach you the same concepts, principles, and techniques that you would get at a
private lesson, or in a music school. You will learn how to read music and play piano pieces within a very short
time. For more information and to order either a printable version of the complete piano course, or my published
piano lessons book by mail, visit the piano course page. But before you get started, let me give you a few tips for
making the most of your piano practice. First and foremost, please keep your piano practice regular! A brief
daily piano practice is more beneficial than a long practice once in a while. Start your piano practice with
scales and finger exercises. Focus on the technically difficult areas in a piece, play them slowly enough so
that you can move your fingers accurately until you get them right without looking. Practice your pieces with
separate hands until you feel confident that you can move on to playing them with both hands. Count carefully,
pay attention to key signatures and accidentals; use a metronome if necessary. Always believe in yourself and
make your piano practice a success.
