Scales & arpeggios are the essential building blocks for all music but too often they are only thought of as an exam requirement at the last minute, then forgotten just as quickly. We’ve all got a scale book gathering dust in the corner with pages upon pages of up and down patterns. How very boring…
These sessions will give you a working understanding of scale theory, knowing how to play them, how to play the variants, how to practice them and how to make them work for you in the pieces we play. We will be also using scales as our basis to expand into various areas of other areas of theory, playing and practice technique. All music is provided. No scale book needed!
