What do you need before we start?

A piano or a keyboard and some motivation.
Oh, and some knowledge about the piano keyboard. If you're not familiar with the basics of the piano such as the piano keys names look up for it in the beginner piano course. Are you now familiar with the piano keys names? Then let's go!

What's a chord really?

A Chord is a combination of at least three notes which gives us an impression of a sound.

The chords are named after the big letters of the ABC. The different Letters state the basic note of the chord and according to the symbols next to it we can tell which we should press in order to produce that specific chord we're looking for.

When we play a sequence of chords we play the HARMONY of the whole song.
Later on, after we'll learn to form different chords we will talk about the rules of harmony. Or in other words, how each chord is related to the other.

In our lessons we're going to learn about chords in two levels. The intuitive level and the theoretical level.

In the intuitive level we will try to form the chords by ear according to the nature of their sounds.
In the theoretical level we will see how the chords are built in a logical manner.
Combining these two aspects is the real and ultimate way to learn to play piano chords.

In the basic piano chord lessons we're going to cover four main chord types. We'll begin with the Major Chords. Then we'll learn about the minor chords. Afterwards we'll discuss the diminished chords and finally we'll talk about the augmented Chords When we're through with that we'll learn to createChord Inversions and we'll end-up with learning to read and play slash chords.

An image of me recommending the Rocket Piano Ultimate Learning Kit. People want to learn how to play chords in order to be able to play any song they desire easily. Some find it easy to learn how to form new chords but don't know how to take the next step to combine them in a song, moving smoothly from one chord to the other while playing the rhythm at the same time

Some like to imitate what they 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 styles like Pop, Rock, Blues, Jazz and more while playing popular songs by artists like the Beatles, Adele, Bruno Mars, Leonard Cohen and more.
