Seventh Chord Piano Worksheets

7th Chord Worksheets are probably just about the best way to ensure that our music students develop a "joined up" understanding of the more "advanced" harmonic issues and principles involved in the identification, construction and analysis of seventh chords.
Having said that though, the most important factor to consider when teaching our students how 7th chords work is .......

"are they ready to study seventh chords?"

If our students have not developed a working knowledge of how (three note) Major, minor and diminished chords work then they will struggle with (four note) seventh chords.

The concept that we need to get them to understand is that 7th chords are just a triad (either Major, minor or diminished) with an extra note added. Once they grasp this then the subject will seem a lot less daunting.

We offer a variety of 7th chord worksheets (such as the ones shown in the illustration above) that come at the subject from a range of different directions.

Some require students to identify (letter names only) the notes that make up particular seventh chords and others ask learners to notate chords as appropriate

If students are already comfortable with the construction of Major,minor and diminished chords then developing an understanding seventh chords can be pretty easy. If they do not already have a thorough understanding of (three note) triads then seventh chords will seem complicated and confusing.
