In the second part of the Beyer op.101 course you will explore the entire keyboard and learn to read the bass clef. Ferdinand Beyer's op.101 is a neat and comprehensive course, perfect for those starting to study piano.
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.
Discovering the bass clef
Until now, your hands have remained on the right-hand side of the keyboard, the part that is written in the treble clef. Now you will learn to read the bass clef as well, your left hand will explore the lower register of the instrument. Step by step, you continue on your journey to the discovery of the piano.
