Books for Younger Kids______ Books for Older Kids______Books for Adults

In the diagram below you will see the printed symbol for the chord, such as C, which is what you will encounter in popular sheet music. Underneath are alternate printed names (and symbols, such as triangles, etc.) such as C maj7, that pop musicians have devised, and which may appear in sheet music depending on the age of the printed sheet music you are using.

Diagram of C major Piano Chord

The C chord is comprised of white keys. It is the first chord you should learn. It is also called "C major." This same chord may use a variety of chord symbols in sheet music, such as C ma and C maj. As a beginner, think of it as the center of the universe.
