How To

You should sit in front of middle C.

Middle C is near the centre of your piano, just to the left of two black keys.

Sharps and Flats
So far we’ve avoided the black keys. But this next song uses one.

In Happy Birthday, you’ll see a B with a little b next to it. The little b means “flat”. So this note is B flat.

To find B flat, look for a black key just below B.
