Today’s video is about triads, and how to play triads on piano. This is an important piano technique, much like scales – they build coordination and understanding of theory. Triads are great because they’re just chords played in a pattern, and the more chords in your arsenal as a musician, the better!
In today’s video we’re going to do a Bach Chorale tutorial, a grade 1 piano piece from his collection the Anna Magdalena Notebook – the collection he wrote for his wife to learn keyboard.
We are going to dissect this piece a little, play through it and talk about the practice points, and the sheet music is linked below.
Today’s video is a quick C major scale tutorial, and how to transform 1-octave scales (which we’ve learned up until this point) into 2-octave scales. This is appropriate for around level 1 piano. We’re still going to keep it hands separate – all things in good time!
