We will learn this exercise first in the key of C Major with no sharps or flats. You will need to place your hands in the C Major position. The thumb of your right hand will be on middle C and the little finger of your left hand will be on the C below middle C.
We will count 1,2,3,4.
When you learn the exercise well, you can move your hands up eight notes (an octave) and your teacher or your friend can play the automatic chords which are noted above the staff. Next a rhythm can be added for more enjoyment. Start out with a metronome marking of 70 and gradually increase your speed.
