Sheet Music Digital Music Lesson #1 - Numbering The Fingers

Hold both of your hands straight out in front of you with your palms facing away.

Since we only have 1 thumb, we shall name it Number 1.

The finger beside each thumb is Number 2.

The next finger, your middle finger, is Number 3.

The next finger is Number 4.

Your last finger, the pinkie, is Number 5.


Once you realize that proper fingering is one of the most important elements of playing keyboards, you will be well on your way to a good beginning!

Below is a picture of the proper finger numbers!

Practice wiggling the fingers and thumbs and naming the correct matching number.

Try playing some keys on your keyboard naming the finger numbers as you play each key.
