Here we’ll continue with our right hand beginner lessons for piano in the Middle C Position.
Let's place our fingers on the piano keyboard in our first position again. Using our "numbered finger system", we'll perform three more sight-reading exercises.
With your hand resting comfortably on your piano keyboard and your eyes focused on the chalkboard, slowly play each note with the correct numbered finger.
Play each note with the same duration and volume level as the next. Try to keep your eyes on the chalkboard and not your fingers (if possible).
Press the “Play” button under the chalkboard to listen to how these notes should sound when played.
When you can play this exercise smoothly and with the correct fingering, you can move on to your next right hand beginner lessons for piano.
Chalkboard two has a great right-hand pattern for exercising your 2 & 4, and 3 & 5 fingers. Be sure your fingers are in the correct Middle C Position and to keep your wrists up, fingers curved. Sit in a comfortable posture as you slowly play this tricky 15-note sequence.
Try not to look at your fingers to see if you're playing the right notes. Just remember your "numbered finger system" and focus on using the correct fingers to play the keys.
After you've practiced this chalkboard on your own a few times, press the "Play" button just underneath it to hear how it should sound when played.
Move on to your next set of right hand beginner lessons for piano when you can play this exercise smoothly and with the correct fingering.

Although chalkboard three is still relatively simple, it will have us constantly moving around within the 5-note Middle C Position.
Again, focus your eyes on the numbers written on the chalkboard while playing the correct note on your piano keyboard with the properly assigned finger.
Practice this exercise slowly and evenly for each note. To hear how these notes should be played just press the "Play" button under the chalkboard
