Piano Tutorial For Complete Beginners

...to master some piano basics while teaching you theory at the same time.   Middle C, steps and note names on the piano   Many traditional pianos have 88-key keyboards, but you’ll stick to playing just one octave (an octave is a set of eight white keys).

...lead sheets. If a jazz musician doesn’t know a tune, they’ll read it from a lead sheet in a rehearsal or performance situation. When jazz musicians compose tunes, sometimes they’ll write them out (at least initially) using lead sheet notation. Singers/Instrumentalists/Pianists: Lead sheets are used in several other genres of music other than jazz.

These nylon strings have a much more traditional and mellow sound, and they are much easier on your fingers.

Opera Voice Types

...they handle higher passages better than typical dramatic baritones. For a Verdi example, listen to the title role in his opera Nabucco; for a non-Verdi option, try Scarpia from Puccini’s Tosca.   Bass-Baritones fill the gap between the traditional baritone tessitura and that of a bass. In short, these baritones have to sing lyrically in the baritone range while producing bass-like resonance in the lower tessitura. Wagner wrote demanding bass-baritone roles in Der Fliegende Hollander and the Ring Cycle, among others. Bass-baritone and basso cantante roles often overlap–we’ll get to basso cantante in a moment.   Bass At last we come to ... Read More
