In just a few hours, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to give you years of musical enjoyment. Learn to play piano the way professionals do-using chords. Since this class is being held online with ZOOM you will be able to sit at your piano or keyboard at home and take this course with no pressure at all. And since this course includes an online book and online follow up video lessons, you will be able to continue your practice and study on your own. An optional periodic online question and answer session is also included. A recording of the class is included as well. The course is partly lecture/demonstration and partly hands on instruction.

Topics include:

• How chords work in a song
• How to get more out of sheet music by reading less of it
• How to form the three main types of chords
• How to handle different keys and time signatures
• How to avoid “counting”
• How to simplify over 12,000 complex chords
