Hey guys! Have you ever wondered how it's so easy for a kid to walk right up to a piano and play a melody like "Mary Had a Little Lamb" or "Jingle Bells" first try but you might struggle to find the notes on your guitar? This is due to the fact that the layout of the piano, having all naturals (notes that aren't sharps or flats) on the white keys and having sharps and flats on the black keys, greatly facilitates the use of a major scale to learn, analyze and understand melodies and chords. Also since chords or triads are built on 1, 3, 5 of a scale, the piano can unlock a thorough understanding of how chords are built and are used together to create chord progressions. This approach will help to demystify music for you and let you get right to the heart of what makes your favorite music so great. After lessons with me, you'll be able to listen to a song and understand its melody and its chord progression by number without even picking up your guitar! It's so easy you won't believe it! As long as you can count to 7, my approach will work for you!
