You Can Teach Yourself Piano Chords combines regular music notation with visual illustrations to give a clear picture of how to voice basic piano chords. The first part of the book introduces the student to basic triads and dominant seventh chords in all the inversions. After mastering this concept, material such as Maj7th, min7th, diminished, augmented and suspended chords are introduced, followed by alternate bass note, addition of the 9th and common chord progressions. Regardless of skill level, the student will quickly be able to play an accompaniment by using only chord symbols. The appendix section will give the student a clear understanding in basic music theory. When using this book as a lesson book it's very helpful to refer to the appendix section while chords are being learned. The book can be used both for lessons and reference. Includes DVD.

    I am just beginning to discover the world of piano chords and I have found this book very useful. Per Danielsson's teaching method is very comfortable and is easy to follow. Completing the studies in this book will greatly increase my practical theory of chord construction. I especially recommend...

    this publication because it includes the DVD which really helps reveal the naure of these studies.
