Beginner Piano Sheet Music
Follow these piano practice tips for this Ode To Joy beginner piano sheet music for quickest results:
1. First, place your right hand in the F position just above middle C with your 4th finger resting on B flat throughout the piece. You will play B flat instead of B for the duration of the piece because it is listed in the key signature just beside the treble and bass clef on the first measure.
2. Next your left hand should place 2nd finger on the first F BELOW middle C and stay in that position throughout the whole piece.
3. Please repeat watching the piano video tutorial of Ode to Joy several times. Watch the right hand all the way through on the first run through. Then watch the left hand all the way through the 2nd time. This will give you a very good idea of the fingerings to use on each note as it is played.
