Get to Know Your White Keys

Ok now lets start! First let's identify the notes on your keyboard. Below, you can see a picture of a keyboard with labeled white keys from C to C (C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C). This is what we call an octave. Octave is usually defined as a tone that is eight diatonic degrees above or below another given tone. Well this just complicates everything.. to simplify things, it means C to C (lower C to higher C or vice versa), B to B, A to A, etc.. It might look intimidating at this point but I assure you it will become much simpler as we go through the lessons. For now, I just want you to identify the C note on your keyboard. The simpliest way to do that is to look at your black keys. You will notice that the black keys are grouped, two black keys as one group and another for three black keys. C is always the note or white key before the two grouped black keys.
