About This Class

Circle of 5ths # 8:  Six Songs Applications - Use Circle of 5ths to understand & predict chord progression!

Now that we  have these 2 Inner Circle Templates & 2 Circles, we can use them to understand chord progressions of songs.  This is how we eventually learn to play by ear!  We will be able to predict chord progressions using the Cirlce movement.


In this course, we will apply the Circle of 5ths music theory to 6 songs.

I will analyze with you why these chords are put there!

Using these 2 Circle templates, you will be able to understand chord progressions of thousands of songs.  Many songs move in similar fashion.

After understanding music theory in  Circle of 5ths #1, #2, #3, #4,#5, #6, #7, #8 -  you can take out your instrument and play these songs easily as you move from one chord to the next.

We will do the following 6 songs:

1. Part of Tenessee Waltz - Key of C:  C C7 F  - I I7 IV V7

C - Chord I

C7 - Chord I7 - Secondary Dominant Chord

G7 - Chord V7 - Primary Dominant Chord

F - Chord IV


2.  Amazing Grace - Key of F:  F F7 Bb - I I7 IV V7

F - Chord I

F7 - Chord I7 - Secondary Dominant Chord

Bb7 - Chord IV

C7 - Chord V7 - Primary Dominant Chord


3.  We Wish You A Merry Christmas - F Key:  2 5 1 -   II7 V7 I - G7 C7 F

F - Chord I

G7 - Chord II7 - Secondary Dominant Chord

C7 - Chord V7 - Primary Dominant Chord

The song is in an up-beat mood.

It is the II7 Secondary Dominant Chord that gives it a happy and bright sound!


4.  Home on the Range -  G Key: 2 5 1 - II7 V7 I -  A7 D7 G

G - Chord I

A7 - Chord II7 - Secondary Dominant Chord

D7 - Chord V7 - Primary Dominant Chord

There is one place that you can put in the A7 Secondary Dominant Chord.

Where do you think it is?


5.  Five Foot Two - In the Key of C: III7 VI7 II7 V7 I - E7 A7 D7 G7 C 

III7 - E7 - Secondary Dominant Chord

VI7 - A7 - Secondary Dominant Chord

II7 - D7 - Secondary Dominant Chord

V7 - G7 - Primary Dominant Chord

It uses 4 Dominant Chords altogether!

Now you know why this song is so upbeat!


6.  Bonus Song:  My Way -  Chord Progression

To conclude the course, I have chosen to analyze the chord progression of "My Way".

There are 4 Types of Chord Progression:

  •  6 2 5 1:  VI7 II7 V7 I
  •  2 5 1:   II7 V7 I
  •  3 6 2 5 1:  III7 VI7 II7 V7 I
  •  I 4:  I I7 IV

People love this standard.

Rosa's Music Online School

Many people at church have asked Rosa to teach them to play piano. As a result of her passion in playing piano, she started developing piano courses initially for church pianists online since 2008. The piano courses are very unique because she was finally willing to share her Unique Piano Method: Color Chord Improvisation Method known as CCI. The CCI method works for all types of music: Gospel, Pop and Standards.

This Piano Method is easy, fun and creative that you learn to play piano not only from music score sheets, but to play chords from fake books and eventually to play by ear. Students all over the world have requested for courses to teach them play standards and popular songs. As a result she developed 3 Great Reharmonization Method courses for them to play from fake books and play by ear. The Dreamy Piano Techniques courses, especially the one on Autumn Leaves is her students favorite. She has a piano website at Learn Piano With Rosa where she continues to offer new courses to her students. She also holds piano workshops for her local students and train church pianists.

With her education and expertise in teaching, her students love her music courses and found her piano lessons extremely easy and fun to play piano. They are highly motivated to play piano and playing piano had never been more fun and satisfying for them. You can read their testimonies on her website.
