This lesson for beginners teaches you to learn how to play the C Major scale on the piano. The C Major scale has zero sharps and zero flats, so it is common for students to learn the C Major scale first.
The C Major scale along with the other major scales are essential in becoming a better piano student. Scales can be made up of a varying number of notes, but the major and minor scales are made up of 8 notes. Be sure to check out my other lesson tutorials to learn more about how to play the piano and music theory.

Your series is very helpful and I've learned a lot in the last couple of days but unfortunately I don't have a keyboard with impact dynamic ( I don't know if it's the right term in English) but that thing when you hit the key harder it gets louder and the opposite.

What do you think should I upgrade to another Keyboard with that feature because I think it'll harm my play in the long run for not having this feature. :/
I think it would be helpful to get used to playing with this feature but I don't know…

Having a lot of fun on this lessons. Up to now, practicing both hands at the same time as been easy. Now it requires a little more to combine the two. Somehow, on occasion I come up a finger short at the end when I speed up. Working on the muscle memory. Great lessons!
