Chord inversions are one of those stumbling blocks that gradually, and then very forcefully, starts to get in the way for intermediate students.
I’ve made it my mission to nip this in the bud this year. It’s been working so well for my students, and I’m hoping I can help you with this issue too.
You can see my three strategies for teaching chord inversions here, and you can see them in action in this week’s quick clip.
These two students have been repeating these exercises, with increasing difficulty, each week. They’re getting pretty good at finding chord inversions on the keyboard using the hedgehogs and ‘Inversion Diversions’ game (from the Vibrant Music Teaching library) and soon we’ll be moving on to working on inversions on the staff.
What are quick clips?
Colourful Keys Quick Clips are all about giving you a taste of what my lessons are actually like – in action.
I certainly don’t claim to be an expert, and I don’t have all the answers. I just know how much seeing real teaching with real students has helped me to grow and improve as a teacher.
Let me know what you think!
I hope you had fun watching this Colourful Keys Quick Clip. If you have any thoughts or questions, be sure to ask them in the Vibrant Music Studio Teachers group on Facebook or in the comments here, and do make sure to subscribe to my emails and YouTube channel to get notified when a new quick clip is published.
If you want more and extended clips of my teaching, be sure to check out the Vibrant Music Teaching library. There’s tons more like this as well as a whole library of teaching games to boot.
