About This Item

Scales, in one form or another, are the main basis of music. The mastery of scales and scale patterns has long been established as the best way to improve technical abilities on all instruments. This collection, designed to be thorough but by no means exhaustive of all possibilities, focuses on what is most common in the study of classical music: core major and minor scales, as well as chromatic, pentatonic, whole-tone, and blues scales. Students will learn the construction of the scales while practicing unique patters, enriching both their minds and technique. Specific slurs and articulations have been left off of the exercises so that a multitude of different articulation and slur patterns can be used.

Each key has been presented in a pedagogical sequence from easiest to most challenging, beginning with whole-note scales before patterns are introduced. As an added benefit, the exercises are presented in two ways: by scale pattern and by key. Teachers and students can organize practice time to focus on learning new scales, or to master all scales in a single key. This unique approach suits different technical levels and will help build solid fundamentals while introducing theoretical principles. The Complete Scale Compendium is a perfect book for developing technical facility and musicianship.

Asked On: 06/21/2016

How many octaves are the scales in this book?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Jessica! The scales in this book are largely two-octave scales, with a few one-octave scales. I didn't see any three-octave scales. Its exercises cover ascending and descending tetrachords, broken thirds, arpeggiated chords, chromatics, blues, pentatonic and whole tone scales--all of which span two octaves. There are major and minor scales that cover both one octave and two octaves. I hope this helps!
