Keyboard Music Notes for the Senses

If you love music Keyboard music notes will open up a new world for you. Would you like to be able to read music notes on the staff and find them on a keyboard? According to Montessouri’s research, learning music enhances understanding in other subject areas too.

How can I learn to apply the notes on a sheet of music to a keyboard?

1. Read: From the picture guide, find c1 in the middle of the keyboard. You may have heard it called middle C. Just to the left 12 notes away, including the black keys, is the note on the chart called C. Match the notes on the chart to your keyboard.

2. Play: Don’t rely on just memorizing what you see. Get to your keyboard and play the notes. It’s playing the notes that gets the sound in your mind. If you plan on remembering the written musical notes, play each one until you can remember its sound.

3. Sing: You should also sing each note as another way to match what you see on the chart with what you heard when you played the note. This works with any instrument, but a keyboard can make it easier.

4. Touch: One more thing – you might laugh at this idea, but it’s also good to come up with a tactile way to remember the notes.

* Try touching your thumb while saying “C”

* Then touch your index finger while saying“D”

* middle finger for “E”

* fourth for “F”

* and little finger for “G”.

5. Write: Get some blank staff paper and try writing the notes as another way to increase what you remember. Do this from memory and you’ve really accomplished something. You’ve learned a new skill!

How can I get a quick understanding of the musical staff?

Another aid to learning how to read keyboard music is understanding what the clef does. A clef tells us whether we are reading from the bass staff or the treble staff. A clef is used to indicate names and pitches of notes on staff lines and spaces.

From our chart, you can see the treble staff and the bass staff connected to the keyboard music notes.

treble cleff The treble clef is also called the G clef. That’s because the circle part of the clef surrounds the line where a G note would appear.

bass clef The bass clef is also referred to the F clef because the line between the two dots names the note on that line – F. Match the note on the bass staff with the note on the keyboard chart.

Play it. Sing it. Touch (using your other hand). Write it. Got it?
