This article is not intended to discredit classical music education. On the contrary, a basic knowledge of music theory greatly simplifies the work of the musician. The study of solfege and related Sciences is exclusively a question of convenience of the musician and the playability.
Keyboard keyboard synthesizer has the same structure as the piano keyboard: the notes are located octaves and separated by groups of black keys (two-three). For convenience, remember alphabetic or syllabic name to each note: "to" C - a white key to the left of the pair of black keys. Next white keys in a row: re - D, mi - E, FA - F, "salt" - G, "a" - A, C - B or H (in the music tradition of the first variant, in the classic second).
To take a chord, hold down the three white keys in one. In the scale get three major chords, three minor and one diminished. Major: C, F, G, is written as one capital letter (sometimes after the letter is added dur – "C"). Minor: d, e, a – are written in lower case, sometimes with a note, mol is "minor". The diminished chord from the notes of the "si" is written Bdim.
Draw checkered sheet table of four cells. In each of them write down one chord in the following order: C, a, mol, mol d, G. This diagram of the left-hand part. Repeat each chord four times in a smooth rhythm in the bass register.
A little practice, connect the right hand. Typically, in pop music the melody is based on improvisation. Try to play simple moves, using the sounds not only of the chords, but nearby. Celebrate successful results and continue to use them.
Create other sequences of chords played with the left hand. On the right compose the melody, gradually complicating moves. Experiment with voices and effects, separate the keyboard on the sector.
If you do decide to do play the keyboard professionally, without the musical theory and special training is not necessary. Hire a teacher or start to go to music College.
