    Step Two: Harmonizing the Melody

    Step two is a continuation of the first step. Once you have determined the melody, you must NOW find the right chords to accompany your melody. For example, if your melody was C – D – E – F – G, you’d need chords to accompany "C", "D", "E", "F" and "G." Hearandplay.com teaches you each and every chord needed to harmonize all tones of a major scale. The following lesson is taken right out of our 300-pg course (Chapter 17; pgs 241-245):

     

    Again, this is just a few pages on harmonizing melodies. If you’ve been helped by any of the free information on this page, you’ll definitely benefit from the content in our full 300-pg course. I invite you to read more about my 300-pg course entitled, "The Secrets to Playing Piano By Ear." Click here for more techniques, principles, concepts, tricks and tips on playing the piano by ear.

    Hi, I'm Jermaine Griggs, founder of this site. We teach people how to express themselves through the language of music. Just as you talk and listen freely, music can be enjoyed and played in the same way... if you know the rules of the "language!" I started this site at 17 years old in August 2000 and more than a decade later, we've helped literally millions of musicians along the way. Enjoy!
