Announcing ‘Clair de Lune’ — professional piano sheet music with notes & letters together!
Claude Debussy’s timeless and extremely popular piano piece, Clair de Lune, is well-known around the world. Its origins include influences from poetry, the music of Bach’s time (the Baroque period), and the artistic school of Impressionism.

How to “Permanently Learn” Every Major Scale using the Major Tetrachord
A VIDEO LESSON with KENT
This is Kent Smith of ‘Piano With Kent.’
I’ve had lots of happy feedback about this lesson, ever since I first posted it on YouTube. People are basically saying that this is the easiest way they have found to learn the notes of all twelve major scales, quickly and painlessly. I learned about tetrachords in my college theory classes, and I have found them to be a little-known “secret” for organizing one’s thoughts about scales and modes. Let me know what you think!

I recently received a question today (on my YouTube channel), an excellent one, the topic of which is subject to debate. The question is in response to one of my videos about using add9 chords on piano. (A link to the video is included below.)
I thought I would share the thread here:
Greetings from Kent!
Today, I’ve just published a FREE PDF PIANO CHORD BOOK that I recently put together, as an optional reference catalog for my ‘Chords 108‘ series of video-based tutorials.
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT RIGHT HERE (from this website):
Although this book can be useful by itself, as a handy reference for checking your piano chords, that’s not really my intended use for it. Why is that? Well, the true, intended purpose of my Chords 108 series, including this new, optional course supplement, is to help teach piano students how to ‘permanently learn’ all 108(+) of these chords, as they appear on the piano keyboard, without any external reference.
Therefore, this catalog should be used, ideally, only to check your understanding of this ‘non-rote’ chord memorization system. That way, you will quickly learn how to call up the notes to any standard chord on the piano, without needing ANY kind of reference!
MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK
Chords are listed alphabetically. Each chord is spelled out by using a simple image (consisting of dots on a keyboard, indicating which keys/notes make up the chord in question).
In a nutshell, all the standard three and four-note chords are illustrated!
HERE’S A LIST OF ALL THE CHORD TYPES ILLUSTRATED IN THIS BOOK:
