Accomodates the learning pace of younger students such as those in Alfred's Basic, Level 2. The scales are presented on one page, with one line of scales in parallel motion, one line in contrary motion, one line of cadences and one line of arpeggios. Includes all the major, harmonic minor and chromatic scales in a special one page per key format.

These excellent all-inclusive books teach scales, chords, arpeggios, and cadences at three different levels. The FIRST book (#11761) accommodates the learning pace of younger students such as those in Alfred's Basic Piano Course, Level 2. The BASIC book (#5754) is slightly more in-depth, presenting scales, chords, arpeggios, and cadence studies in all the major and minor keys. The COMPLETE book (#5743) features everything in the BASIC book, plus extra features like a 12-page explanation that leads to complete understanding of the fundamentals of major and minor scales, chords, arpeggios, and cadences; a clear explanation of scale degrees; and a two-page guide to fingering the scales and arpeggios.

    This is an excellent book for learning scales and arpeggios for late elementary on up. However, it can also be used with the musical semi-literate beginners also, if taught with patience, starting hands separately. Teachers should reinforce music theory principles while teaching from this book so there is understanding...

    of keys and the circle of fifths.

    Starting out with two octaves of these scales makes this a bad choice for beginners and a good choice for intermediate students.
