I've been practicing and I am at the stage of trying to record my lesson 9 stuff. I been practicing the Volt en majeur and I have been playing A throughout the piece? in the first measure my sheet indicates an Ab, should I be playing that note throughout thepiece and not A? I was looking at the the lessons published so far and I think I see that everyone is playing an A throughout the piece.
I am a little confused and inexperienced in reading music and I am not sure that I have been reading the piece correctly. Can someone guide me please on how I should be interpreting the sheet music?
Hi Claude Huddy
"VOLT en la major" is in the key of A major. There is no Ab in the first bar.
If you are not sure how to read sheet music, here is my suggestion:
First, you should learn the notes on the staff, here is a video about notes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=le10tF_3YWg
Then learn accidentals, here is a video about accidentals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkgQfQYcZgc
To understand key signatures, you should first learn the major scales, here is a video about scales: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhBjsK6gg2Y
And then you should understand the key signatures, here is a video about key signatures: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdH6K6LPuS0
There is a lot of material on the net, about basic music theory.
I hope this was helpful.
