I Don't Get the Piano Keys

by Megan

Umm I'm 12 and I don't get 123 does it mean C when there's white key black key white key black key when u play C??? I am very confused with piano and I only understand letters. Do you have any like tutorial things with letters?


Hi, Megan, I'm not sure I understand your question, but I'll try to answer it.

The white keys are A,B,C,D,E,F,G. The black keys don't have their own names, but they are called "sharps" or "flats" and named after the white notes they are next to -- each black note has 2 possible names. If you look at the piano keyboards on another page on this site, you will be able to see what the names are.

I don't have any tutorials, but why don't you try the piano lessons at FreePianoLessons4Kids.com? Also search Youtube.

Good luck.
