Piano – G Position

G Position is usually the third hand placement configuration that I teach my beginner piano students.  Learning hand positions is a structured and systematic way to teach new students how to read notes on the staff and to understand the line/space relationship to the piano keys.  The above illustration shows what G Position looks like on the keyboard in reference to middle C (which is highlighted in green).
     Fingers #1 – Thumbs
     Fingers #2 – Index fingers
     Fingers #3 – Middle fingers
     Fingers #4 – Ring fingers
     Fingers #5 – Pinkie fingers

The right hand plays the notes to the right of middle C as indicated on the diagram.
