"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
I Would Like This Nice Sports Car"

By all means, use the traditional lyrics if you still are not sure what a star is. I prefer the alteration in the title because I am determined to buy a nice sports car someday…maybe. Anyhow, it’s very important to be able to play a piece very soon after you start piano lessons. The second that anyone finds out that you play piano they will want to be entertained. Here is the first third of the song Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Pianolessons101 suggests repeating the clip over and over again and trying to copy the hands playing. Learning by copying is not the best way to learn, but it is effective in learning your very first piece.

Here is a link to the first video.


Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
I Still Want This Nice Sports Car

The second clip of this piece starts at the part where the lyrics are saying “Up above the world so high…” If you prefer the car lyrics, please feel free to substitute the following: “I can go at speeds so high, must drive slowly or I’ll die” (replace die lyric with fly if you feel like being a little less ‘dark’). Eventually we will attach what you learn in this video to the first part of the piece. For now, use the same approach that you did for the previous lesson and play this clip over and over again in order to try to copy the movement of the hands. A helpful hint to remember is that most beginner pieces and arrangements are centered round middle C. If you ever lose your place then go back to that area of the piano.

Watch part two of the video.


Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
I Just Broke This Nice Sports Car

The title is proof that pianolessons101 is not a fan of unsafe driving. See what happens when you drive carelessly. For kids just learning to drive, you must always be in defensive driving mode. For adults, don’t be in a rush. After all, as my wise grandmother once said, “when you get into an accident, you have time!”

This video shows you how to combine the first two clips of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”. The third part of the song, which is an exact copy of the first part, is also included in the clip. Once you’ve learned the entire piece, keep repeating it over and over. The more automatic the piece becomes, the more you can put emotion into you playing.

Part three is right over here.
