Piano Lesson No. 1a: Hand Position

I HAVE TWO HANDS the LEFT and the RIGHT...
at dahil kamay ang ginagamit para ma-play natin ang piano, bigyan natin sila ng assignment: Hand Positioning / Piano Fingering


ano yan?! wala naman, it's just that it will be a lot easier to play the piano if you know the right and comfortable positions of your hands in playing the keys at para hindi magkarambola at magbuhol-buhol ang daliri mo kung tutugtog ka na sa piano habang nagbabasa ng piyesa.


kung tutuusin sa umpisa lang naman kailangan ito... sa mga beginners talaga especially kids. in case you'd notice sa mga piano exercises for beginners may numbers sa ibabaw ng mga notes, ginagamit lang yun to indicate which finger(s) ang gagamitin to play certain notes. although meron pa rin mangilan-ilan na piano sheet music for advanced piano players na may fingering numbers pero some parts lang naman ng piece... more on guide lang naman yun... pero kapag may one-on-one piano lesson ka with a piano teacher nakuuuuu you have to follow the fingerings provided sa piano exercises or else... lagot! hala! ^_^v


since our hands are symmetric, we'll use number on each finger, thumb being the first finger on each hand...


figure 1a.1



hand's position: hands should feel na parang may hawak kang tennis ball or stress ball or kahit anong bilog na bagay na pwedeng mahawakan ng isang kamay mo... yung sakto lang... mag-imagine ka... yun yun! dapat naka-curve ng konti ( maliban sa thumb - let it simply lay on its side because of its particular position. wag mo siyang pilitin ganun talaga normal niya... hehe =p ). when you curve your fingers, curve it in such a way na yung lahat ng tips of your fingers eh pantay at nakalapat sa straight surface. 'wag tigasan, 'wag panggigilan ang mga daliri, relax lang. ^_^v


enough of this hand position. let's now go to the next step... Piano Lesson no. 1b: Name that Keys
