Course Description

Learning to play piano or keyboard is a wonderful thing to do. It takes time but every minute spent learning piano is worth it.

Anyone who has learned the basics will love learning these chords.

Anyone who knows nothing about piano will love learning these chords. (beginner lessons are included.)

Being able to play in a wide range of keys is essential if you want to play with a band. Or for that matter to play at home. Imagine playing for someone who cannot sing in the key you know. You can easily change key if you know this many chords.

You could find a new song in a key you don't know, not if you know this many chords. Or if you don't know the chords for a particular key, have a ready lesson source, to teach you how to play the chords required.

Are you using your fingers properly for the chords you do know? Get it wrong and it will be difficult to move on to the next chord. That’s where Quick and Easy Piano Chords comes in.

Quick and Easy Piano chords is designed by a qualified piano teacher to teach over 80 chords in 17 keys, so that you will only have to learn songs, you already know the chords.

Ideally the course is suitable for someone who has learned the basics, knows their fingers and their notes and wishes to increase their chord knowledge. Of course anyone even just starting out could take the course. A video on finger numbers and a second one on notes of the piano is included, so it is suitable for even a total beginner.

The course consists of:

  • HD Video lessons- so that you can clearly see how you should be playing each chord.
  • High Quality Sound- so you can here how you should sound when playing your chord.
  • All Major, Minor, Major 7, Minor 7 & 7th chords in 17 keys covered- so one chord course will be all you need.
  • Teaching is provided by a qualified piano teacher, who will only teach you the correct way to play each chord. Just as she would teach you if you were a private student coming to her school for lessons.
  • Proper fingering taught for both left and right hands, to ensure you play properly and can reach all of the chords, even the difficult to reach chords.
  • Can be used as a teaching course to teach you all or some of the chords you wish to learn, or as a video chord book for you to check chords you have forgotten and need refreshing.
  • Each chord is taught in an individual video to ensure quick and easy access any chord.
  • In order to take the course, you will need
  • A piano or keyboard
  • A means of accessing the internet which can be
  • A computer
  • A tablet
  • Smartphone
  • In fact anything that can play video
  • A printer to print the documents but this is not essential as they can be viewed on screen

By taking this course you will be able to play a tremendous number of popular songs. Chords that are rarely used in popular music but can be included, will be easy to learn due to the knowledge gained in this course.

What are the requirements?

  • Students will need access to the internet and a piano or electronic keyboard.
  • A basic knowledge of playing piano is preferable but not essential as basic lessons are provided for recognising notes, fingers and what chords consist of.
  • A printer would enable the printing of downloadable materials, although these can be viewed on screen without needing to be printed.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • play 85 chords and have a continuous reference resource, in both video lessons and a chord book.
  • be able to play chords in a wide range of keys, making playing of songs with other people much more enjoyable.
  • play almost any song in any key
  • have the dexterity to move from chord to chord smoothly and with complete confidence.

What is the target audience?

  • The course will suit beginners to intermediate level, piano and keyboard students. Those who have a taken a beginners course of instruction such as Just chords Piano will benefit most, however the course is suitable for anyone wishing to increase their range of piano chords.
  • Very few people would find this course unsuitable. Many beginner guitarists do nothing more than learn a few chords and start playing.

Instructor Biography

Jackie Clark, Piano Teacher At Udemy

I am a piano, keyboard and guitar teacher and have been for over 25 years, with a 100% Student exam success rate.

I qualified to teach with the Associated Board Of The Royal Schools of Music in London.

Why I teach online:

  1. I have taught students in the traditional route through exams and still do with private students although my main focus is now online teaching.
  2. The need for a less formal method of teaching piano and keyboard was shown desirable by many students. Many of whom expressed a desire to play piano for fun and relaxation rather than spending years learning classical or forever taking exams.
  3. I did notice that a desire to learn piano became a desire to pass exams as time progressed. Once the exams were passed, many students rarely played again. Of course this is not completely true several of my former pupils have gone on to be successful professional musicians.
  4. Now I believe the exam route is a superb route to learning piano but not for everyone.
  5. To answer the requirements of some students I developed the system of learning piano by the use of chords only, which allows students to rapidly learn to play piano using only chords. The advantage is that students learn to play piano very quickly together with enjoying their lessons and playing for pleasure forever. I have written two books teaching these methods. I do teach using traditional methods also for those wishing to learn using music.
  6. HD video lessons surpass other mediums for learning piano, in my video piano lessons I use my front on camera angle, that ensure students not only learn to play piano by seeing what is required to be played, they also fully understand how to play. I tried many ways to teach on line including the common overhead camera method. I found limitations in students understanding of the piano. Copying the keystrokes by rote teaches where to put fingers, but not a full understanding of why, so essential for future playing.
  7. Having taught students from ages of 8 to 75 years of age over a vast number of years I know that my courses will work for most people.
  8. Being online they are available anywhere in the world where an internet connection is available

When Teaching On-Line, I ensure you learn:

  1. Correct terminology, essential for future playing with others or expanding your knowledge
  2. Correct fingering of every chord, every scale and every note, together with variations
  3. How to find songs and utilize them to suit your own playing style
  4. From a practice schedule for you to use for practice between each lesson, ensuring your success
  5. How to improvise and make songs your own
  6. From a downloaded and printed text book to use for practice
  7. Full support from me, including you sending me recordings of you playing should you be having problems for my analysis and advice for improvement.

Why 4000 plus students are learning from my courses:

  1. I am a qualified teacher of Piano
  2. I teach only proper piano methods that will allow students to advance long after they finish the course
  3. I have 30 years experience in teaching piano, keyboard and guitar
  4. I provide personal support
  5. My lessons are fun
  6. I provide a practice schedule to use after each lesson
  7. My full front videos are as near to being in the room with you as possible
  8. I Care about you learning piano.
