The Complete Piano Learning System
For Teenagers & Adults
Lesson #2 - Left Hand Chords
The C Major Chord
Can Adults Really Learn Piano?
Yes! Each new chord style piano lesson in this course is designed to fit the schedules of busy teens and working adults!
The first 10 weeks cover the fundamentals of chord style piano. In that time Guy will also teach you the most effective practice technique ever developed.
When I turned 18, I quit piano lessons. I figured that if I wasn't able to truly understand music after 13 years of piano lessons, then I was never going to get it.
Then I met this self-taught musician who could learn any song in a matter of minutes. He taught me Chord Style Piano and music finally started making sense. It literally changed the course of my life.
I first have to teach you some basics and the best, most effective way to practice chord style piano, but the real fun starts in Week 11, Lesson 31.

The Bass Clef
The symbol to the left is called a bass clef. This symbol is normally placed on the bottom staff in a grand staff. The bass clef is typically associated with notes that are played with your left hand.
The Quarter Note
In Lesson #1 you learned the quarter note. The round note head of a quarter note is completely filled and consists of a stem. The quarter note gets 1 beat or 1 count.
A chord, in musical terminology, is a group of notes played together at the same time. In today's lesson, you will learn the C major chord.
In the illustration below, the yellow arrow located below the keys represents Middle C. In Step 4 of this lesson, you will see and hear the C major chord exercise.
