A useful resource for kids who hate practising scales.

November 7, 2012 16:43

Persuading my young pupils to practice scales musically, as opposed to mechanically, is an ongoing struggle for me. In response I have created simple, yet pleasing accompaniments to all scales and arpeggios specifically to help young pupils organize and discipline their scale practice. These elaborate backings help to improve intonation and tone production by providing a harmonic and musical context. Hopefully this will put a bit more fun into scale practise, seen by many young instrumentalists as a form of torture.

They can be downloaded from: www.ScaleAccompaniments.com.
