Course Structure

Exploring the keyboard

In the first module the hands explore different areas of the keyboard. First they move into the high register between the notes G and D, then underneath middle C, and finally into an even higher register, between the notes A and E. Since your hands change position often, you will improve a lot in reading music.

The rhythm is getting more interesting…

In the second module you learn to play the eighth notes and the 6/8 compound time. Your hands no longer play the usual five notes, but begin to open up and move. The rhythm of the exercises is more interesting and varied, and in the meantime you are halfway through Beyer's Opus 101! Half of the way is behind you, and half is in front of you.
