When learning to play the keyboard, you will notice that a lot of musical pieces and predominantly songs are based around certain chords. So if you do know your basic chords you can already play most pop songs. I have put together some basic chord theory for you, so that you can start playing along to your favourite songs and improvise further on these. I do hope this is helpful for a beginner, however, feel free to comment below if anything seems confusing or if you would like me to provide any additional information.

If you are keen to learn to play piano, but don't have the time or money for lessons - don't worry! There are plenty of helpful, fun and educational tutorials available for free that will help you make the first steps whether you are looking to learn classical piano and theory or just wish to play for leisure. I have put together a selection of my personal YouTube favourites.
