In this course, we take a deep dive into the most common kind of chord in music: the triad! By the end of the course, you’ll be able to play every kind of triad on the piano. You’ll learn to expand on the simple chords behind the songs you love, so you can sound natural and expressive on your instrument. And you’ll discover how you can play most songs just by reading a simple chord chart.



None – this course is aimed at total beginners!

Triads Practice Log

This isn’t a simple checklist that you should work through item by item, but rather a springboard of inspiration for your practice. Focus on areas of interest to you. You can work through all 12 keys as you go, or just pick a few to get started with and continue on down the list. You can also choose to work on all of these skills in the context of songs rather than as stand-alone practice exercises. Do what works best for you!
