In this two-page exercise, students must fill in each table with the triad chords that belong in the given key. The first table is completely filled in already as an example, and each table is progressively "more blank". This approach makes it quite easy to understand, even for students who may struggle with this concept! The tables reinforce the idea that in order to fit into a key, a triad must contain only notes found in that scale. Also, students will see after completing the tables that every key contains the same pattern of major, minor, and diminished triads. If used as a teacher-guided activity, this printable exercise is also a great way
to teach the concepts!
