The notes required for an F major piano chord are as follows:

  • F

Start by playing two F notes in your left hand, one octave apart. Once you’re comfortable, play a C note in the middle with your left hand second finger.

Then use your right hand to make up the rest of the chord. Play an A note with your thumb, and a C with your second. Then stretch your fifth (pinkie) finger up to a high F.
