Beschreibung des Verlags

What would it mean for your ease of mind if you understood scales better?

You're with your group at a practice session when someone suggests playing the piece in a different key. Your mind goes blank as you try to remember how many sharps or flats are in that new key. You really don't want to play the wrong notes. That would be so embarrassing.

The problem is that you were never properly taught the different keys and scales. You picked them up as you went along. At best, your teacher may have tried to make you remember some mnemonic which you confused with that other mnemonic about the colors of the rainbow.

A solution is now offered to you. "Why Scales Need Sharps and Flats" is the first volume of a new series, "Notes on Music Theory", for all musicians young and old who feel the doubts created by their lack of knowledge.

In this book, I'll guide you through a solution to this fear:
the construction of the major scales,the logic behind this construction,the major tetrachords,why flats or sharps have to be added to some scales.I'll give you some aids to help you use your visual memory as well as your hearing.
When you have completed this book, you will know the fundamental characteristics of a major scale. You will be able to construct any major scale using the correct set of sharps or flats. You will understand where the so-called modes come from. Fear of embarrassment will be a thing of the past.

A better understanding of the foundations of musical theory will help your performance and improvisation skills. You will become the one to offer help to your friends.

A set of audio-visual material is available as an optional free download to help you see and hear the characteristic sound of a major scale and the differences between a major scale and some of the modes.
