					How to Play the Piano: Learn the Chords

If you want to know how to play the piano, you must learn the chords first. This is the
fastest way for you to learn how to play such a beautiful musical instrument. Not all
individuals can learn to play the piano full time and if this is the case, you simply
have to learn the chords.

The piano chords can be easily learned by making use of self instruction materials.
You can purchase chord guide books or even videos. Different chords are made up of
several notes and so if you know all the chords by heart, you will also know the
different notes. A lot of people say that you cant learn to play piano unless youve
spent years of learning but thats not exactly true. You can learn to play simple song
in no time if you know the chords. But of course, youre not expected to play very
well at first because thats natural.

How will you learn all the chords? Firstly, you need to purchase the instruction
materials. You can find them in music stores. Once you have the instruction materials,
you can start learning the chords right away. You have to constantly practice and
dont be bored if you need to do it again and again. Only then can you master the
chords. Your hands also need to memorize the proper positioning.

Once youve memorized all the chords, you may be able to read a wide range of
music sheets. Dont focus mainly on the C chord. You still need to master all the other
chords in order to play simple songs. If you know the full chords, you can play songs
with finesse and rhythm. You can even make your audience think that youre playing
a very difficult music sheet.

The traditional piano has 88 keys but if youre using electric keyboards, it has fewer
keys. The keys follow a pattern. The pianos left side has deeper and lower keys while
the right side has higher keys.

Unlike the alphabet that starts with A, when learning the piano chords you will begin
with the C chord. Later on, with continued practice you will be more familiar with the
different chords. The pianos white keys are named C D E F G A B consecutively.
These are also the notes that make up the C chord. Now with the help of your
instructional materials, you can learn all the other chords.

It is very important to memorize the chords as well the notes that make up each chord.
If youre not very good at memorization, this is the time to improve it. Memorizing
the chords is not a very difficult task because if you practice frequently, it will come
out naturally and you dont even have to force yourself.

Go to the nearest local music store in your area. Find an instructional material that
will work for you. You can even purchase several materials if you like. You can have
a guide book, DVD, or CD; its worth all the money because you will learn to play
your songs easily.

Learn how to play the piano by focusing first on the chords. Good luck and maybe
time will come when you could already play for your family and friends. Just be
patient.
