In This Issue:
How to Learn Chord Piano for BeginnersLearning about piano chords and how to use them to play chord piano is a fun and useful way to play the piano.
Chord piano is what playing chords on a guitar are for pianists. It's fun and a lot easier than you might think.
Sure, we still can't drag the piano with us to the campfire or the beach like a guitar, but it's still fun and a great social skill to have; accompanying singing, for example.
In this month's issue, you'll get tips and techniques on how you can begin learning chords. You'll also learn more about chords, get a printable piano chords chart, and why Roman numerals are used to read and play chords in progressions to play in any key.
Easy Piano Chords for BeginnersLearn piano chords for beginners in this fun and easy piano lesson for adult beginners.
As you complete this lesson, you'll know how to actually accompany a four chord song (Amazing Grace) with basic piano chords, as well as how to play a melody with a simple chord accompaniment.
Piano Chords Chart for BeginnersHere's a printable piano chords chart (PDF) for beginners. In this easy piano lesson, you'll get tips on using chord charts for when you are playing.

Roman Numerals Chords for PianoWhat are roman numerals chords and how and why are they used in piano chord progressions?

Piano Playing Q & A
Piano Question of the Month
Learning Chord Notations: The Roman Numeral VI'm teaching myself music theory (best I can). Piano is my instrument. I'm (hopefully temporarily) stuck learning all the of the various chord notations (triads, 7th, inversions, etc. etc.)
Please answer this question. It will help me with "context." Please tell me all that one can know about the simple symbol V? Thanks so much, Jean
Piano Sheet Music
Sheet Music: Jeux InterditsFrom Virtual sheet music this month, you'll get a well known, beautiful composition with broken chords in the right hand. A real workout.
Start by practice each group of 3 notes (in the right hand) at the same time as a "blocked" chord. This makes it easier to learn and remember.
Next, when you play one note at a time "broken"- you need to bring out the melody in the top notes (keep the top notes a little longer.)
You can listen to the piece before you download, but keep in mind that you can (should) play the piece much slower than the example.
