Try a better view.

The piano itself was very dull. You need to create a better view of it to allow the user to see the board itself. Try birds eye.

Other than that this tutorial was very vague. Instead of numbering the keys with numbers, list them with letters, the A-G scale used on a piano.

the keys = fingers

Pretty helpful.

I learned how to play this song very early on too. I understand you linked to the online keyboard on this site, but it would be really helpful if you included a keyboard on this flash tutorial as well. The fingers being numbered trick looked very effective, you would make a good music teacher in that department. The overall flash looked bland as there was a drawing and a blank background, it could use some more diagrams or examples to keep the viewer interested.

I was never a big keyboard fan, but I know how to play a few songs. I was always more of a saxophone player, but even a novice pianist like me learned information from the tutorial, so I think you have achieved your goal. Keep working at telling people vividly how to play and I'm sure your flashes will gain popularity. Keep up the good work!

The Tutorial is great, but could have been longer ;)
