LESSON FIVE: STARTER STUDIES

Staff and Keyboard

Student NotesThe time signature tells you that the size for each measure will be four quarter notes long. The tempo tells you how fast to play each quarter note. Listen to the "click" sounds that are being played by your computer and the QuickTime™ metronome file. Each click represents one quarter note. Tap your hand on your thigh and match each click heard with one tap of your hand. You should now be tapping along with the metronome and at the same speed. Do this for about 3 minutes. As you do this, look at each quarter note (reading from left to right) on the staff. Let your eyes move from one quarter note to the next as you hear each click and perform one tap with your hand. When your eyes run out of quarter notes, go back to the beginning of the staff and begin again. Continue to repeat this exercise over and over for at least 3 minutes. When you are done, go to the next page.
