Playing chords is a useful skill to have, and a very fun way to play the piano. It's quick to learn too! :)
Chord Piano is what we call the style of "comping" or "faking" chords, played either with a melody, or by playing only chords (or harmonies).
For beginners, you can simply play the melody in one hand-usually the right hand- and play a selected few 3-note chords or triads in your left hand to "match" with the melody.
The technique of chord piano can be as simple as this, up to any possible skill level.
Tip: When you start playing chords, make sure to play all chords in root position first. It makes it very easy to play- and anyone can learn this, even without knowing anything about chord playing!
