The Circle of 5ths

The Circle of 5ths is one of the most useful tools in music theory, but it is often overlooked in traditional piano lessons. In this course, we’ll break down the many connections between the circle and popular chord progressions. By the end of this course, you’ll be integrating the circle into your practice, and you’ll have an enhanced understanding of not just how music theory works, but why!



Familiarity with Key Signature Essentials (major scales, diatonic triads).
