---------------------------------------

The ABRSM scales always felt painful to get through, especially when exam season draws nearer. They take up a lot of lesson time. And they aren't exactly a favourite among my students.

I needed ways to help my students learn to play scales with both hands with much greater ease. And I needed ways to help even the least hardworking students learn scales much faster.

So after many iterations, this version is what stuck. I took away the keyboard diagrams almost entirely, because my students did way better with just these stars and lines.

---------------------------------------

Additional notes:

  • breaking the scale into chunks is a very big component, identifying the patterns between the chunks greatly speed up learning
  • getting students to draw the constellations of the scale stars on a separate sheet of paper from memory helps a lot, especially if they are stumbling quite a bit
  • do scribble in additional notes, it is especially easy to circle the exact spot where the fingering and notes are not right
  • as with the traditional ABRSM scale book, is higher grades, where there are more than 2 octaves, only 2 octaves of visuals are provided
  • there is a caveat that it still takes a little determination of exactly which white key to hit even though the constellations provides the shape of the scale
  • for scales that use all five black keys, its still easier to learn by route than with the scale stars sheets
  • do write to me if there are suggestions
