TMT2: Chord qualities on a major scale

Hey all, Welcome to Episode 2 of the podcast 10 min Tips to Teach Music. I hope you are excited to hear this one. It is all about how to build chords using the major scale. In the podcast I talk about a process I use with my students to help them draw a cheat sheet.

In the podcast I explain:

  • how I use the key signature to find the major scale
  • how to build the chords using the scale degrees
  • which chords are major, minor or diminished
  • what learning style student this strategy suits.

To see a video of the process in action, go to my Youtube Channel: Kerri Lacey

Klerrisa Custom Music creates innovative resources that engage my students

Kym Reithmuller

I have used Klerrisa’s resources for many years and have always found them to be highly beneficial as they work! You can open them up and start teaching knowing that they have been thoroughly prepared and tested in the classroom. Students respond well to them as they experience success and fun whilst learning. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I highly recommend the resource material on the Klerrisa Custom Music website. Both Kerri and Lisa are excellent educationalists, presenters and musically talented professionals.
