Hey there ya’ll!
I sincerely hope you and your piano are getting along well. You two were made for each other! Relationships take work, never forget that.
This is another post for keyboard players who read music “a little bit,” but who may have trouble remembering all that stuff about key signatures, or sometimes forget which piano key belongs to which line or space on the staff. This is quite common, so don’t feel bad!
Here at Piano With Kent, we have the expertise to accurately mark up sheet music, such that every note on the staff is labeled with its “LETTER-NAME,” for example, Eb, F#, C. (See image above.) To do this accurately, one must always honor the prevailing key signature, as well as any accidentals.
Having each note labeled this way makes the music much easier to read!
Today’s selection is Beethoven’s famous “Moonlight Sonata,” entire first movement.
