Simplifying Chords:

A Textbook For the Classroom and a 

Reference For the Road 

by Elizabeth Goodine

If you need a working knowledge of the chords you learned in Music Theory class, if you are a classically trained pianist but want to learn to play by ear, or If you already play the piano by ear but need to better understand the chords you are playing, then this book was written with you in mind! It is easy to understand and will help you no matter your age, your musical ability or level of music education. You can benefit from it whether you are working alone or in a group setting.

"Thank you again to my friends and family who joined to celebrate the release of this book. What began many years ago as a stapled handout for a music seminar I used to teach and later as a seventeen-page booklet, this book took me nine years to revise before it was released in March 2016. For the past five years I have had the joy of teaching the concepts to my students and have felt so rewarded as they have grown in their understanding and in their ability to apply what they have learned."
