How to Play If I Were a Boy by Beyonce (Piano Tutorial)

Home » Piano Tutorials » If I Were A Boy - Piano Tutorial

I've been asked by so many people to make this piano tutorial by Beyonce and since I love her so much for being so musical and groovy yet gentle as she is, I decided I'll make this tutorial with pleasure for you guys.

No background is needed here except from being familiar with the names of the notes. I'll explain how to play each and every chord clearly so give it a try.

If I Were a Boy Piano Tab
Here's a useful free downloadable piano sheet of the accompaniment of the song as played at the beginning of piano tutorial

The difficult part about this part is probably that it is played in D flat. So once you understand that you have five flats you're set.

The easy part about this piano tutorial is the fact that the groove of the song is very easy: Left-Left-Right, Left-Left-Right.

Do as shown at the beginning of the tutorial. First practice moving slowly from one chord to the other before combining the groove.

Make sure you understand the concept of play the tonic and fifth in the left hand.

An image of me recommending the Rocket Piano Ultimate Learning Kit. Had fun? Great! You know, there's a way to explore more on how to play piano by chords. It's great to imitate what you see on a video but you can learn how to form all possible amazing piano chords and learn to play an enormous amount of different rhythms while playing popular songs by artists like the Beatles, Adele, Bruno Mars, Leonard Cohen and more.
