Piano Basics: Numbering the Fingers
Once you have found C on the keyboard, we need to figure on how to place our fingers. We start by numbering the fingers on each hand, 1-5. Always start with your thumbs as number 1 until you get to your pinky which is number 5. Now that you know how your fingers are supposed to be numbered, place your right hand thumb or finger number one on C. The left hand pinky or finger number five will be placed on C and all of the fingers will follow on the subsequent white keys. You are now in C position and ready to play your first songs!!!
