Here's how to do it...

Hi Edge,

1.The notes are notated in the key of G.
That means you have to play F# in the piece the whole time through. That's why you see a sharp sign where F is close to the treble clef.

For more info on this visit the G major scale page.

2. When you see two or more notes one under the other it means you have to play an Hamonic interval, meaning two or three note at the same time.

Click here to watch a handy piano tutorial that will teach you about this issue.

3.Rhytmically we're speaking here about Eighth Notes.

There are two eighth notes in a quarter note so you should count: 1.. and.. 2.. and.. 3.. and.. 4.. and.. (but the video in the adress I directed you too really explains this well.)

4.Last but not least I'll post here the name of the notes of each harmonic interval.
But if you'd like to expand you knowledge on reading piano notes I really suggest you follow our Piano Notes Section.

You'll find there everything you need in order to catch up with what's you're missing in here.

The notes however are:

g f# e f#
d d d d
g a b a

5. They should be played in a Staccato manner.
Follow this excellent piano lesson on musical phrasing and you'll learn exactly what it means.

Last tip: The lower notes of each harmonic interval should be played under middle C while the rest should be played above. If you wanna know why follow this lesson on How to read notes on the treble staff.

O.k., I think we covered your question completely.
If you have further question don't hesitate to ask me. Hope this helped
