I am a beginner only.

I have an electric keyboard and I am playing 'fur elise' - it has one treble clef and one bass clef.

I'm fine with the terble clef, but I don't know if I'm supposed to play the bass clef on the lower end of the keyboard (or is that for instruments that have pedals etc?)

And if so, isn't it confusing to play the bass clef and the treble clef together (because they are read differently)?

Thanks in advance

Play the bass clef to the left of middle C, the treble clef to the right of middle C. A search for ""the grand staff"" will show the range of notes and where it divides.
