Primary Song chords

This project excited me as soon as I had the idea. I wanted to give my small children and piano students the gift of being able to play some of their favorite primary songs easily. I taught them three root notes of basic chords in the key of C Major (C F G). To help them to later be able to transpose into any key, I referred to the chords as I, IV, and V.

I was pleased that so many songs in the Primary Children’s Songbook were so adaptable to these three chords. Forty pages of songs! And they can play them all!

We also used these in home evening to add novice players on an auto harp, guitar, ukulele, hand bells, piano, and toy xylophone. Oh how the joy resonated in our family while we played and sang these beautiful songs together!

I hope they bring you lots of joy too.

Sincerely, Amanda

One thought on “Primary Song chords

  1. I came across this looking for something else, and I’m so excited. I teach my children piano (and they have picked up other instruments in school). We have worked with this type of notation a little this year as we’ve explored chords, keys, and lead sheets in our lessons. This will be such a fun addition to our piano lessons, for my son learning guitar, and to be able to use in family home evening and other music times. Thank you for doing this and making it available for free.
