I Like to Practice Scales – Ricardo Matosinhos
The aim of this method is to offer a new approach to the study of scales. Instead working this subject in a traditional way with a progressive increase of the number of sharps and flats I propose working all the scales used on western music (major scales, natural minor scales, harmonic and melodic) with the progressive increasing of the number of notes. This way the student is led to the establishment of connections between the different scales, even if at the beginning he is not aware of that. The primacy of practice over theory is meant to motivate the students to practise scales and, last but not least, to lead them to enjoy it!
