A chord is a set of three or more notes. Chords are usually made up of intervals, most commonly major thirds and minor thirds. Chords are also derived from scales and are used to provide harmonic accompaniment to the melody of a song.
Chords are essential to providing harmony for a song. For example, when a pianist or guitarist accompanies a singer, he uses chords to create the harmonic accompaniment. By learning how chords are constructed and how different chords work together, you will start to recognize and remember the common chord progressions. You will also have a strong foundation for composition and improvisation.

"I'd just like to say that I am enjoying Theta Music immensely! I am a complete novice when it comes to music theory and your system is just so easy to understand, I'm constantly having aha moments! After only a short period of time my listening skills have improved dramatically and I wasn't expecting this because I was not sure that I had the ability to develop in this area."

"I am a 54 year-old guy with degrees in several fields who's decided to finally take guitar lessons from a local genius of a guitarist who's been patiently trying to teach me music theory. My dad was even a concert violinist who tried to convince me to learn music theory. Did I listen? So I was just Googling for online music theory lessons, and I found your site. I've only completed one lesson so far, and I'm already very impressed. The explanations are clear and concise. You're helping me to finally understand facets of music theory that until now just didn't make sense to me. Now THAT is serious praise for effective lesson planning and presentation. I am grateful, and I'll pass on your site's name to the Music teacher in our
local high school."
