    This is the best introductory scale book I've come across. It has just about everything. For each key there is a 5 finger scale (makes scales not so scary at first...), a basic cadence using the I and V7 chords, and a fun hand crossing arpeggio. And not just...

    that: There is also a song for almost every key! It is a great way to introduce students to new keys and prime them for full scale playing in the future. There is also an improv option which I don't use as often as I'd like, but those have been helpful in introducing the concept of improvisation to my younger players.

    This book is a wonderful tool! Ths introduction of scales and arpeggios incorporates improvisation and is sufficiently reinforced with another piece on the next page! Can't wait until book 2 comes out!

  • 2009-12-02 00:00:00.0 Finally!

    Here, in one convenient volume, is the incremental approach I've been seeking. Short etudes and sight-reading pieces on the page opposite a given scale offer the student a complete appproach to applied music theory. Where's Book 2!!
