Piano students: If you’re currently taking formal piano lessons, I highly recommend that you be guided by your teacher when it comes to the labeling of notes with letter-names. That’s because any long-term student of piano who hopes to play well from the written page, rather than by ear only, has to be doing serious long-term study, covering lots of sheet music without using such aids.
