Learn Piano Chords for Beginners

Hello,

Welcome to a long overdue newsletter! In this issue we'll have some fun with piano chords. Playing chord piano is fun and easy to learn, at least in the beginning... Then, of course it's up to you to take it as far as you want! But today we'll focus on learning almost from scratch, easy-peasy.

Happy Practicing!
