Hey, my name is Derek Peterson and I am a singer/songwriter. I play many instruments, but the one I have spent the most time on is the piano. In 2008, I started my own YouTube channel that is mostly dedicated to teaching piano. This blog will expand on the things I have taught on YouTube, and it will go back to the basics, more so than my other lessons. Please take a look around and come back soon for all of the piano help you need.

How To Play Chords
This is the second lesson on playing the piano. The video below focuses on some beginner chords.
1. Every chord shown in this video has three notes that are all separated by one note.
2. Every chord can be played in different variations (as long as the three notes that make up the chords are played).
3. Try to play the chords together in a way that makes it easy to switch between the chords, without moving too much on the piano.
