How to Become a Pianist in Ten Lessons – Lesson 2: Getting Your Bearings

Part 3:

In this video, our three focus points are: Notes (naming them and getting a solid grip on keyboard orientation), Intervals (the half and whole step principle) and Triads (the group of three notes which make up a major chord).

Best Beginner Playlist (Philosophical & Technical – Ordered and more recent content!):

As with every video, you are advised to internalise the theory, partake in your own further reading and take away the practice tips and practice for a few hours/days. Be positive, do not ever doubt your ability to progress and practice away from the piano on your Internal Piano because you will benefit greatly from this additional practice, as I explain.

Note: What you must acknowledge is that 10 videos does not mean it takes 10 hours, or 10 days, even 10 weeks! It will take as long as it takes for you to consider that you have reached an acceptable level; this may involve going to take exams, making recordings of pieces or your own compositions and getting feedback, or visiting a real-life teacher for refinement. Please bare this in mind during the 10 video course.
