Grade 4. lesson 9 triads and chords

Triads and Chords


In the earlier grades we built triads only in the 'tonic' position, on the first degree of the scale.

Grade Four students will be required to recognise and write triads from other degrees of the scale, you will be told using the technical name of the scale which note is to be the lowest note, you will then build the triads from there.

Triads and Chords, are they both the same?
A triad is a chord with only three notes, the triad is built on thirds. All triads are chords, but Not all chords are triads.

Triads are built with three notes, where chords can have 3, 4, 5, or even more notes.
There is much to learn within this lesson, starting from page 29 to page 34, in the music theory lessons book, this lesson covers six pages of valuable information, every thing you need to know about Triads and Chords.
