Now students know how to write out major scales, as well as identify all of the intervals involved. Let's play some piano! These notes are quick and to-the-point, giving your students relevant information before they sit at the keyboard for the first time. Armed with fingering patterns and a knowledge of the "numbering system" for their hands, I give instructions in this handout to help a teacher get students started playing major scales, even if they've never done so. I worked on this little by little with non-musical high schoolers for about 15 minutes every other day, and by the end of the year they were able to play two handed scales with ease, as well as other piano exercises and pieces.
