about

This song was my solution to teaching the vertical spelling of root position triads in a major key. Rather than put them up on the board and review them out of context, this song allows them to hear each triad in context, as well as throwing in a few surprises that they can learn about later. Best used with accompanying sheet music or at least a harmonic analysis written out.

It is meant to be a singalong, and is presented as such.
