When you are beginning a new task or learning something new it is always best to have a starting point. In this lesson you are given a starting point on the piano. That starting point is Middle C.
From there we go up the keyboard using the white keys and make a C Major Scale. From the notes in that scale we are able to build chords. The chords we build are called triads or 3-note chords.
The first chord we build is the C chord which is made up of the notes C, E, and G. The next chord is the F chord which is made up of the notes F, A, and C. The last chord we build is made up of the notes G, B, and D.
After we build the chords we add the root of each chord in the left hand and then play them in succession. Playing the chords like this is called a chord progression. You don’t get too many details, but we give a good starting point for learning how to play the piano.
