C Position

To find C Position, place the RH thumb on Middle C and the LH ‘pinky’ finger on the C key one octave lower.










Both hands have their own C, D, E, F, and G.  Try the C Position exercise below.









Notice that the C below Middle C is a space note.  This C position can be a great help in finding your way around the bass clef.  The C chord is easy to recognize and remember, C E G.










Learning to play hands together in C Position in parallel motion is a significant step for beginners. 









Important note:

Hand positions are only used for the beginning stages of learning to play piano.
