Triad Blocked and Broken Chords

Efficiency on the piano comes from having proper technique. Most self-taught pianists only practice scales in hopes of developing strong technique; however, one of the often overlooked but necessary exercises to help with technique building is practicing of Block Chords and Broken Chords. After all, as a pianist, we spend most of our time playing chords, so we need to ensure we do everything necessary to hone this skill.


In this course, you will learn everything about how to practice blocked and broken chords in all twelve keys with the correct fingerings. The chords covered in this course are; Major, Minor, and Diminished

Movement and inversions

The entire course is beautifully laid out and your teaching and tips in training are what I really needed. The broken cords and inversions will definitely keep me occupied.

Combination of both blocked and broken chords.

I find intriguing how the lessons reveal what I thought was difficult, but my take home is an intentional practice of all diatonic chords starting with Key C and a conscious build up to all other keys following the same finger positions for the inversions.

Slow is fast.

This exercise is helping me a lot when it comes to inversions. My left hand is my main challenge, however I'm taking your advice and including it slowly into my daily practice.
