1. Become familiar with major, minor, diminished and augmented chords. Practice these regularly, and make sure to know what the chord spelling is. The chord spelling refers to the notes that make up the chord. For example, a c major chord is spelled C, E and G. The e minor chord is spelled E, G and B. The better you are at spelling chords, the better you will be at playing chord patterns. Once the lesson is finished, use the link in the description or annotation to find the printout notes for this lesson and practice your chord spellings. If you are unfamiliar with chords, I recommend you learn two chords a week and add two each week until you are familiar with them all. Keep in mind that for a beginner, it will take time for you to learn your chords.
2. Become familiar with common chord patterns (like the I, IV, V exercise we will have today) patterns. These are known as cadences. Becoming familiar with these patterns on the piano and by sight will help you play chords much more easily since these are the patterns you will see in actual music.
