Moonlight Sonata | VIDEO | Sheet Music with Letters & Notes together | PDF Download

Product Image: First page from 'Moonlight Sonata' Sheet Music with 'Letters and Notes Together.'

Hello from Kent!

Here is a potentially very helpful video (at bottom) that features real-time playback of the Sheet Music sold below: Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, Entire First Movement – Sheet Music with Letters & Notes together (PDF).

The product link above has all the details you need about this sheet music for download. In a nutshell, this is the complete First Movement of Ludwig v. Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 14 (famously known as ‘Moonlight Sonata,’ originally when referring to the First Movement’s popular nickname).

This video can be useful as a reference when making sure you have your bearings in the sheet music. When you scroll through it, you can tell what page and measure is being highlighted and played at any spot, by looking in the little preview square (as you move the play head around). YOU CAN ALSO SLOW THIS VIDEO DOWN, using YouTube’s playback settings for the video – just click on the gear icon in the lower right of the player window.

There is also a Keyboard Video graphic, just below the sheet music view, that highlights and sounds every note being played from the highlighted sheet music, in sync with the sheet music audio, in real time.

Please see below this video for more interesting stuff about Moonlight Sonata!

How to Read Piano Music: Naming the WHITE KEYS

Shchedryk easy sheet music with letters, for piano. Ukrainian carol.

Hello friends!

This is Kent Smith of ‘Read Piano Music Now’ and ‘Piano With Kent’ (R).

Today, I’m pleased to present a tutorial video that I hope will be a musically entertaining review/introduction to the basic “landscape” (or layout) of your piano keyboard, which includes a systematic approach to learning how to name and remember all the white keys on your piano, by using the black keys as landmarks (as they were designed to be, when it comes to navigating the keys).

In a subsequent lesson, we’ll look at how all the Black Keys are named, which is a pretty straightforward thing, as they are named in relation to their neighboring white keys.

Enjoy!

We will be talking about:

  • – How to read rhythm in sheet music.
  • How to understand the notes on both staves, as they related to your piano keyboard.
  • – The meanings of all those symbols on sheet music: Dynamics, phrasing lines, tied notes, pedal markings, tempo and “mood” instructions, repeat signs and descriptions, and much more!
  • – Key signatures.
  • – Accidentals (sharps, flats and “naturals”), as written inside any given measure, which temporarily override the key signature.
  • – Chord symbols.
  • – Basically, everything that has to do with reading sheet music, especially for piano, but also for any instrument!
