This app creates backing tracks in tons of different styles, based on chord charts which you can download or create for yourself. You can adjust the volume of different instruments and change the tempo too. It’s a fantastic resource.
As you’ll see, this student is a hoot to teach! This exercise isn’t easy for her, but she tackles it well and with enthusiasm.
This chord progression uses only white key major chords. The next challenge from here is to play all the chords chromatically, and then following the circle of fifths.
After all those, my student will have achieved Chord Apprentice level and will get a coveted spot on my challenge board.
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 enjoyed this Colourful Keys Quick Clip.
