Hello! I’m a beginner, like, I haven’t even played it yet. I was going to follow some guides and write the letters on my keys, when I realized, that melodica have 22 white keys while mine has 19 white keys??? I have 32 all together… Can someone help? Is this wrong, or just a different style? How can I figure out which keys are which? I’ve never played anything with keys before, I’ve always played drums.
Thanks!!September 13, 2017 at 1:43 pm #9321
Hi Chelsea, melodicas come in all shapes and sizes!
You have a 32 note melodica. They’re also quite common. Is it a Yamaha P37D? If not, what model is it? I’ll tell you where to write the letters on the keys.September 13, 2017 at 2:22 pm #9323Alan BrintonParticipant
Daren meant to say P-32D (or E), Chelsea.
I would advise writing the letters in an erasable ink so you can remove them once you have learned the keys, which shouldn’t take very long.
Have fun with your melodica!September 13, 2017 at 2:44 pm #9324
Thanks Alan, that’s right P32D (orE)!September 17, 2017 at 1:23 am #9330Chelsea SilerParticipant
Thanks so much guys! I found a ‘c’ above one of the notes and was able to deduce which keys were which.
I’m not sure what model it is.. I didn’t know anything about which brand is better, so I bought the first one I saw. Which, I know its smart, but I was sooo excited to learn!! Its pretty good too!
