Learn all the chords needed to play any pop song in one afternoon! You’ll learn how to construct major, minor, and seventh chords; practice and memorize chords; and transpose a song into your key, play a song by ear, and accompany yourself singing. It is essential to know the notes on the piano and have a basic knowledge of the treble clef. You can download a free brochure on Debbie’s website, EasyPianoStyles.com, under the “Free Music” tab which teaches you the basics of music notation.

This class will meet in-person at CCAE with a limited student capacity. Please note that COVID-19 proof of vaccination is required. Please view our In-Person Class Guidelines.
