    Is it normal to feel that triad at C-Major Pentascale harder than D-Major?

      Some chords might feel more challenging to you than others. I would recommend putting some extra daily practice into playing all of the triad chords you know. The more you play the C Major chord, the more comfortable you will become. Good luck and Happy Playing!

    I’m loving this course Mr. Hoffman… 3 fingered chords makes it even more exciting!

      I’m so glad! And I agree – 3 fingered chords give even more color and complexity to music. It certainly can make a song more exciting!

    Three note cards are way too hard I’m not relaxing my fingers at all I’m pressing as hard as I can.

    I made a few typing mistakes what I meant to say was that I play better with my right hand then with my left hand but when I play with my left hand not as much pressure goes on the piano keys and when I play with my right

    Hi Mr.hoffman,I was just wondering did you ever grow up playing the piano as a kid if you did who did you learn from

      I started learning piano around six years old and I had a few different teachers as I progressed. In high school, my advanced studies in piano were with Alfred Mouledous, principal pianist for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Thanks for asking! – Mr. Hoffman
