Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.

In this module you will be able to be familiar with the musical element that contributes to the expressiveness of music. You will be introduced to the concept of harmony that gives more depth and color to the melody. You will learn how a simple song can be pleasing to hear when it is with harmony and when it can become more pleasant to listen to when it is played with correct tempo and texture.
The module is divided into two lessons, namely:
- Lesson 1 – Major and Minor Chords
- Lesson 2 – Using Major and Minor Chords as Accompaniment
After going through this module, you are expected to:
1. distinguish the sound of a major chord from a minor chord.
