hi i am a beginner at piano i wish to ask advice on how to finger march in f by Daniel Turk

please do not say what suits you, because that does not help at all. I am trying to learn to finger 'March in f' by Daniel Turk, but it's driving me nuts how to do it.

It's in 'Essential piano repertoire', selected and edited by Keith Snell (preparatory level, page 7). Any tips would be helpful and nice.

i tried to do some guesses at the piece of music but i am not confident it is correct or feels incorrect to me please feel free to give me your take on how you would do it

best wishes

hi he did but i did not accept that his reply, it was too complicated. Do not forget i am a beginner, so i was looking for someone who has done this and come up with a fingering, ie a finger for each note, g = 1 etc and then a =3 it says that in the notes, but my notes are not correct i believe they are not.. Allot of people do videos of these piece and show how they do it. what i do i go through these videos copy their finger to see if it works . I used their fingering as a base to work on, or a foundation. There is no video of March in F by Turk on u tube. So i asked for some examples, but i got a lot of theory or some crazy views on my motivations. When i clearly explained what want i wanted. It is not difficult. to understand this but apparently for some it is

Are you having trouble crossing your middle finger over your thumb?

That's the standard fingering that everyone from beginner to advanced would use. The alternative is to start bar 3 with finger 4, so you don't have to cross a finger over your thumb, but I think you'll find it awkward to play with 5 on the B flat.

Or else cross over with index finger (2) rather than 3, i.e. 2-4-1 in bar 4.

"low C"?

It's just middle C, and the obvious fingering is 1, in the five-finger position with thumb on middle C.

You might want to read this:

When you're starting, it's always a good way to familiarise yourself with, and get used to the standard 5-finger position at the keyboard first, with both hands.

Bennevis has answered you already. The thumb plays the F at the end of measure 3 then you cross the finger 2 or 3 over the thumb to play the E, then make a small adjustment to the hand position so that finger 5 can play G and finger 1 play middle C. The only “low C” is on the left hand/F clef on measure 4 and that can be played with finger 5 (the left hand can play 2 3 2 5). This is standard fingering for a complete beginner. You may be used so far to have one finger playing just one key in the five finger position. This piece from Türk will force you to move the hand a little.

I think you are investing time on this forum and elsewhere that you could be using to actually learn this piece. And you are unable to ask a clear question (which is normal at your stage of learning) and you are also unable to understand the input we are giving you (also normal). My advice is for you to get support from a teacher so that your questions are properly addressed.
