Course Description

This Piano Course is a Course that will teach you how to create unique/colourful Chord Progressions on the Piano. 

This course will teach you how to create unique/colourful Chord progressions through the use of a technique that is called Chord Substitution and through the use of Passing Chords and Secondary Dominant Chords. Chord Substitution is a technique that involves using a particular Chord in the place of another Chord in a Chord Progression in order to create variety, interest and hence add colour to the original Chord Progression. 

In this course, you will learn about the different substitute chords that you can use for the Tonic, Supertonic, Mediant, Subdominant, Dominant and the Submediant Chords. You will also learn about the chord substitutions that you can use for other chords.
