Hi Guys,
I've just found this forum and we have not got anything like this in England so I was wondering if you could help.

Having learnt the C position, when we move up the octave on the right hand what note should the thumb be on and what is this new position called?

Similarly does anyone know the same information for moving down the octave for the left hand?

Thanks once again.

Calling it hand positions on the piano is very confusing, and it's not good for future development, calling it a 5-note scale maybe better, and remember your 5 finger can play any 5 notes in a roll, regardless where it starts.

If you want to move an octave up from where you start, you will have another roll of C-D-E-F-G.

Octave means 8 notes apart between notes, like C to C.

L. H. does the exact same thing.

Is this student in Alfred? If so, get them out of it! I am amazed at the number of students who end up starting with Alfred and then having to almost go back to the very beginning (I use Faber, both the standard version and Acclerated version, depending on the age and intellectual capacity of the student) because changing where their hands are on the piano often seems difficult for students on Alfred. (Faber has students crossing hands and changing fingers on the same note less than halfway through Level 1!)
