The piano forms the basis for all western (European) music. Its 88 keys are separated from the keys next to them by one half step. The lowest note on the piano is an A, while the highest is a C. It is intriguing to see an accomplished pianist glide with ease among the notes on the piano, using the elements of music to make glorious sounds.
When you are learning music, you learn that the major scales are made from a series of whole steps with two half steps between the third and fourth notes and the seventh and eighth notes of the scale. For the minor scales, the half steps are between the second and third notes and the fifth and sixth notes. When you play the scales, they have distinctive sounds to them, and when you play the notes out of order, they form melodic patterns, yet they retain the sounds from those scales. The sounds of the notes of the scale are the sounds of the key. For example, the key of G major uses the notes of the G major scale.
A traditional piano has hammers and strings inside of it. When you play a key on the piano, a hammer will strike the strings to which it is assigned, and the resulting note will sound. Some notes have three strings, others have only two. The strings must be tuned properly, or the piano will not sound right.
When you learn to play the piano, you will learn to use all of your fingers on both hands. Your hands and fingers will work in conjunction with each other and with your eyes, ears, and brain to make the music that is on the page in front of you or the music that is in your head.
