Beginners Piano - The A class chord

February 21, 2017




Hi everybody! 


We hope you had a great half term. Doesn't it just speed on by!
 So let's continue with our musical journey and learn about the A scale and A chord. 


🎵Last week we looked at how to construct a scale.  If you play one key at a time, this is called a scale. 

🎵For the A scale we start by finding A on the keyboard. A can be found two keys below middle C.

🎵If we play 7 more keys, we go up to the next A. 

🎵Now let's play A, B, C#, D, E F#, G#, A. This is the A scale!

🎵Have you noticed that this week there are not two, but three funny symbols? 😊Remember these are called Sharp keys. They are the BLACK keys on the right of the C, F and G called C sharp, F sharp and G sharp.
🎬 Now watch Alex and see how he plays the A scale and the A chord!  Can you tell the difference from the A chord and A scale     🎶🎶


For the chords please look at this week's Funsheet. The 3 notes stacked right next to the treble clef 🎼 form the A chord. Give it a go and play the chord. It can be tricky, but do not give up! Practise makes perfect


🎹  Oh and before we go, please let us remind you not to forget about last week's D and G chords! You'll need D, A and G chords to play our 'Little Bee Blue song.'


Have fun practising

Lots of love
Fun-Keys 🎵💖🎹
