Eighth notes

Eighth notes on the piano: What is an eighth note?

THE eighth notes are really interesting and a little more complex than what you have already learned. Let me explain in more detail.

Imagine a four-beat measure. Each beat is an equal part of the measure and represents a quarter note. Now, an eighth note is one eighth of this measure. So, in a full measure of four beats, an eighth note only covers half a beat. Ru must therefore play two eighth notes for each quarter note in this measure.

Now, when you look at an eighth note, you'll notice that it has a closed notehead. It's that oval shape you see, usually with a little stem and tail. The notehead represents the duration of the eighth note, which is half a beat. The stem and tail are just there to visually indicate that it's an eighth note.

La croche

So when you play an eighth note, you let the sound continue for half a beat, before moving on to the next note. It's important to understand that each eighth note has the same duration, so they should all be played equally.

Eighth notes on the piano: How to put them into rhythm?

You see, there are two eighth notes for each quarter note. Since your metronome represents quarter notes, you will need to play two notes for the time it takes for the metronome to make a single click.
You can count like this: “1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and”

What is important is that both notes have the same duration. But don't worry, it shouldn't take you long to get used to this rhythm. As you practice, you will become more and more comfortable and you can gradually increase the speed.

Eighth notes on the piano: Exercise 1

In this exercise, it involves playing eighth note chords in the right hand and accompanying them with a whole note in the left hand.

Eighth notes on the piano: Exercise 2

Eighth notes on the piano: Exercise 3

The motif presented here is also widely used in current music. It involves playing alternating eighth notes with your right hand and accompanying yourself with whole notes in your left hand which reinforces the chord change. With the right hand, we alternate the middle and top notes of the chord with the note played by the thumb.

Eighth notes on the piano: Exercise 4

Exercise 4 repeats the basics of exercise 2 but differs in the execution of eighth notes in the left hand. The right hand plays quarter notes as in exercise 2. On the other hand, the left hand which played eighth notes continuously (Exercise 2), now plays the offbeat of the quarter notes with the right hand. The left hand no longer plays downbeats 2, 3, and 4. So you end up with a left hand / right hand alternation, with the exception of the first beat where both hands play together.

Eighth notes on the piano: Exercise 5

This exercise is an introduction to piano arpeggios. The principle is to play eighth notes with your right hand by performing an arpeggio rising and falling of your chords. The arpeggios are very interesting musically. Adèle's piano arrangements use them frequently. Thanks to this pattern, you can also practice on Someone like you in video on our site. If you are interested in arpeggios, you can work on the course on arpeggios in the “piano technique” section. You will discover many varieties of arpeggios to vary your arrangements.
