It’s group lesson week in my studio… our last group week before Christmas! A couple of my groups have been working on chord analysis skills this semester, and so this month I thought it would be fun for us to do a little Christmas-themed review. Many familiar Christmas carols can be played with only a few simple diatonic chords, so they’re perfect for analysis exercises!
The O Christmas Tree worksheet asks students to spell and identify I, IV, V and V7 chords in the key of D Major. Deck the Halls requires students to spell and identify I, IV, V, V7, ii and vi chords in B-flat Major.
