Lesson 3: Finger Numbers

Lesson
Materials

In piano, fingers have numbers. Both of your thumbs are 1, and then you count out to 5.

We’ll practice wiggling fingers to get used to these numbers. I’ll wiggle mine just after so you can check if you’ve gotten the correct fingers.

Both hands: wiggle finger 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 3, 1, 4, 2

Left hand: wiggle finger 1, 2, 5, 3, 4, 2, 4, 2, 1, 5, 1, 5, 3

RIght hand: wiggle finger 5, 3, 1, 3, 2, 1, 4, 2, 4, 5, 3, 1
