Playing the Piano with Chords

There’s a simple way to understanding how to read chords at the piano. Let me show you how!

Course Summary

 This course walks you through the step-by-step process for learning how to play the piano with chords. I will not expect you to just imitate my own playing, but rather I will give you tools that you can apply to any chord chart. We will learn about the difference between major and minor chords, inversions and sus chords, and decode three chord charts. At the end of the course you will know how to play a holiday piece with broken chords, a Pop song with blocked chords, and a Folk song.
