Then, next white note after that are D, E, F, G, A, B, and C. After that, the pattern will be repeated. Thus, it is not as complicated as what you think. All have same pattern of white and black notes so you will not hard to find as long as you have got the note C. this becomes the first step. You may also try to push the note to find the different sound.
Once you have got understandings about the note, it is time to practice and train your fingers. You can start by using your right hand. Right hand becomes important to train first because mostly people use the right hand. What you need to do to is to place your finger on specific note. In this case, you need to place your thumb on the note C, index finger on D, middle finger on E, ring finger on F, and little finger on G. You can familiarize your finger with this position. As for the rest of notes, you can consider it later.
Your focus is train your fingers on the right position. You can try to push your fingers based on the order from C to G. You can push the note on by one. When you have got familiarized with it, then you can try to make your fingers’ position perfect. What you need to use is actually the tip of your finger instead of the flat area of your finger. By doing so, your fingers can move flexibly. You can try to some random patterns to make your fingers more flexible in pushing the notes. It will be better when you can remember the position of fingers without seeing the position anymore. When it happens, then you have got familiarized well. After you work on your right hand, you can start with your left hand. The fingers of your left hand are also placed on specific note but in reverse order. Thus, your little finger will be on C and the thumb is on G. you do the same process to familiarize your fingers on the notes until you can move them without seeing the position of your fingers anymore.
After you have familiarized your fingers on both right and left hands, you can try to move them. One of the hardest parts is to move them in different positions. Thus, you can try to look for some simple notes or songs to train the movements of your fingers on left and right hands. You can try slowly and when you make mistakes, you do not to worry. You will get accustomed to read the notes and move your fingers as you increase your experiences in moving them. This surely takes time and it is fine if you only try single song until you master it. After that, you can try harder songs that require higher coordination of your fingers. After you are able to move your fingers on both hands well and you have fewer mistakes, you can learn chords. Chords are for the left hands.
There are different chords and the main chords are A to G chords. Each cord requires you to push three different notes at the same time. That is why it is great when your fingers have remembered the positions of notes. Once you have mastered the chords, you can play the songs with chords and notations.
