How To Construct Basic Chords on the Piano
The easiest way to start learning how to build chords is to practice their constructions in the key of C Major. You’re just playing all white keys.
All you have to do is play every other white key to create a 3-note chord. A 3-note chord is called a triad. A 4-note chord is called a 7th chord. And a 5-note chord is called a 9th chord.

What Are Piano Chords?
If you are playing several notes at the same time, then you are playing piano chords. Simply put, when multiple notes are played together, piano chords are achieved. The chords then come together to form a melody. Every song that you hear has a melody and it is through each melody that music is achieved. Sound complicated? Well, that’s ok because it really isn’t as difficult as it sounds.
As a musician, whether it be professional or hobbyist, you will need to learn the various types of piano chords.
