Piano TipS - D Chord & D Scale

Hi everyone

๐ŸŽน Let's learn how to play beginners piano with Fun-Keys. We have looked at Middle C before so now we are learning about Middle D, the D chord and the D scale.

๐Ÿ’— D starts in the middle of the two black keys. ๐Ÿ’™ If we play 7 more keys, we go up to the next D. ๐Ÿ’— If you play one key at a time, this is called a Scale. ๐Ÿ’™ So let's play D, E F#, G, A, B, C# and D. ๐Ÿ’— Have you noticed there are two funny symbols. These are called Sharp keys. They are the BLACK keys on the right of the F and the black key on the right of the C. They are called F sharp and C sharp.

Watch the clip for a simple demonstration with Sunita and then read all about chords below: ๐ŸŽฌ

๐ŸŽผ CHORDS. Look at the Funsheet, can you see there are three notes stacked on top of each other? These are called a CHORD. This is when you play several notes at the same time. * Listen to the clip. Can you hear the difference of a chord and a scale. A scale is played one note at a time and a chord is played with several notes at a time.

Practise playing both until you get the hang of it. These notes will help you to play our 'Little Bee Blue song.'

Have fun and keep in touch with us at Fun-Keys.
