This is the fourth episode in my Piano for Beginners series. In it, I look at the bass clef and how it’s different from the treble clef. Bass clef is important, because it helps us notate the area of the piano keyboard where our left hand spends most of its time – that is, the octaves below middle C. The tutorial includes a full explanation of the lines and spaces of the bass stave and (in the accompanying PDF) an exercise to help you learn them.

Then I move on to covering the scale of C major in both right and left hands. Musicians often complain about scales – and they can seem dull and pointless to learners – but they are incredibly important, because they help both physically and in understanding and internalising music theory.
