Teach chords better!

The ability to recognize and play chords without hesitation benefits all musicians. For improvisers, chord fluency enables such practical skills, learning tunes by ear, transforming lead sheets to arrangements, jamming with others, and creating one’s own part in bands. For those who prefer to play written music, facility with chords improves learning literature through harmonic analysis, enhances sight reading by predicting what will come next, and facilitates memorization by internalizing underlying progressions.  Now your students can enjoy learning essential music theory concepts with their hands as mine do. 

Order either or both:
