starting on the piano I recommend starting on weighted keys. I say this as your fingers
will be adjusted to the stiffness of the keys. When you then progress to a light weighted
keyboard, you will fly across the keys. It is still up to you which one you get as it needs
to be something you will feel comfortable practicing on. Some keyboards are weighted as
Keyboards can be 88 keys, 76, or 61. This is something you can decide on based on your
needs and space available for the instrument. A lot of musicians have the 61 and/or a 76
key keyboard. It is easy to fit in the car as they travel from place to place. 88 keys is fine
if you have the room, but most 88 key keyboards are rather heavy. I myself like a 76
keyboard as it give me the flexibility to play without the heaviness to carry.
The piano/keyboard uses the following alphabet letters: A B C D E F G
The piano/keyboard consists of white and black notes.
White Notes = Natural or Regular notes
Black Notes = Sharps and Flats depending on how you address the note.
Moving one note a half step to the right = Sharp (#)
Moving one note a half step to the left = Flat (b)
Notice the pattern in relationship between the black and white notes.
Notice that there are 2 black notes together and then 3 black notes together
with white notes in between. This pattern repeats over the entire instrument.
You can move between notes via half step (E & F. Notice that there is nothing between
those 2 notes.)
You can move between notes via a whole step (C & D. Notice C#/Db is between those
