June 22, 2012 at 11:17 AMThis will seem like a shameless plug, but after years of listening to pupils’ uninspired and out of tune scales, I’ve finally created a resource to help the situation. In lessons I typically accompany my pupils’ scales at the piano, providing a rhythmic and harmonic context to help them shape and tune their scales. After many requests, I have made mp3 backing tracks to every scale and arpeggio, including chromatic, dominant and diminished versions. As well as providing a rhythmic and harmonic context, they also provide a framework for practice with three different speeds. They are available to download at www.ScaleAccompaniments.com. I’d love to hear any feedback or suggestions for changes.
