This course was an experiment in which I tried guide beginning students to learn and practise some fundamental aspects of piano playing without the need to learn to read music notation. I can't say that I fully endorse this course any more. There are certain aspects of it that I think people have found confusing, and the progression of difficulty is probably not as well suited to a beginner as I would have liked. However, I have decided to keep it available for now on the off chance that someone finds it interesting of finds some value in it.
The music in Lesson 3 is for Saxophone, Drum Set, and Piano. Your part will be played on all the white keys. In this lesson your part is somewhat quicker than anything you’ve had to play previously. Choosing a suitable fingering will help make playing it a little easier. Be sure to watch the video lesson to see the fingering I chose for myself.
