9-Week Chord Exercises

When I started teaching Christopher the new piano method, the first thing I asked him to do was to start learning some basic chords. I am going to ask you to do the same thing.

If you are willing to follow my piano instruction to the letter, like Christopher, then you will learn this amazing piano method in a very short period of time!

Make The Commitment

Make the commitment to learn 3 new chords every week. If you follow my 9-week chord exercises, (see video lessons 1 to 4 below), you will know the 12 major and 12 minor chords in a little over 2 months.

This will be a huge achievement for 3 main reasons:

  • First, you'll be able to play any song ever written. A few minuets every day will allow you to learn these 24 chords in just 9 weeks.

  • Second, once you've mastered these basic 3-note major and minor chords, you'll be ready for 4-note 7th chords. These are the chords that will add real depth to your playing.

  • Third, once you have mastered major and minor chords and a handful of 7th chords, you'll be ready for my Play Piano By Ear Super Course, which is free as well. (see below for details)

Week 1 of 9: C, F & G major



Week 2 of 9: Cm, Fm and Gm (m = minor)



Week 3 of 9: A, D and E Major



Week 4 of 9: Am, Dm and Em

How To Learn New Songs

The video lessons in the "Amazing Piano For Adults" online piano course will guide you through a very controlled, organized method of instruction, allowing you to progress at a very comfortable, logical pace.

The following suggestions will help keep your frustration level to a minimum -- just in case those first few songs don't sound anything like they should. It won't be long before good sounds start coming from your finger tips.

  • Start with short, 1-page songs that only contain a few chords.

  • Learn slow songs that contain only one chord per measure. If you don't know what a measure is yet, that's okay. You'll know soon enough.

  • Try playing just the right-hand melody to songs that have more chords than you currently know. You'll be adding the left-hand chords before you know it.

  • Continue to learn 3 new chords every week using my 9-week chord exercises. When these chords become second nature, that's when the real fun begins. You're only 9 weeks away from reaching that goal.

  • When starting to learn a new song, regardless of the difficulty level, you should always practice the right-hand melody and the left-hand chords separately for several days before attempting to play both hands together.

  • IMPORTANT: When learning the right-hand melody to a new song, focus on the proper fingering and playing the correct notes. Don't be concerned too much with the rhythms of the individual notes or the speed (tempo) of the song.

    If you're playing a song you're already familiar with, the rhythm and tempo will come in time, but not before you've gained a thorough knowledge of the melody notes and their proper location on the piano keyboard.

    This may seem obvious, but I've seen it time and time again in my private students...the tendency is to rush the process, and this inevitably results in frustration.

    Chord Piano is a the easiest method on the planet, so take your time, especially in the beginning stages, and you'll be amazing yourself, friends and family in a matter of months. ENJOY THE PROCESS!
