A Good Place To Start Your Keyboard Learning

For those of you who would like to play piano accompaniment – with no desire to become accomplished, professional musician – this is a good place to start.

A Good Place To Start F1

Nice music doesn’t have to have complicated chord structure. Case in point, Canon in D has only 5 diatonic chords – 3 major and 2 minor.

A Good Place To Start F2


This piece uses five of the seven diatonic chords in D Major. The other two chords are Em (II), and C#dim (VII). You may use the VII chord as a triad substitution for the dominant chord (V7). C#dim/A = A7.
