Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Welcome to Lesson #11.

In this lesson, you'll learn how to play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, by W.A. Mozart. It was the first song he ever composed. You'll play the song in two different ways, starting on two different notes. If you have a real piano keyboard handy, you can also practice your shifting skills - whether or not you must shift.

Without any further delays, let's start playing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star starting on the note C.

The following several measures is Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star starting on the middle C or in standard position. If you have trouble reading the notes, please go over Lesson #4 - All About Notes. Although I provided the notes in letter form in Mary Had a Little Lamb, I will not here because if you have gone through all the previous lessons you have become advanced enough to play by just looking at the notes. I don't expect you to play the song perfectly the first time around. In fact, I don't expect you to play it impeccably the second time around. Take your time and learn it correctly.







There you have it. You have just played the Twinkle song that Mozart composed so long ago. Let's try it on a different note with a varying rhythm. This will be a little faster. Click "Next"
