“ Scales learning through duets”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
Anything that makes scales learning a little more palatable is likely to be well received by everyone, so this book is bound to be a winner! The concept is simple - play a short warm up in your chosen key and then work on the scale-based duets that follow. Sight-sing the melodies and you have an instant aural workout and the pieces make very good sightreading practice too. It is not progressive - the music is set out major/relative minor so you can adapt it to suit the circumstances as well as introduce some basic theory.  Some of the simpler numbers are repeated in more difficult keys with a higher note range, enabling students to read more fluently earlier. There is a good amount of rhythmic variety as well as different articulations to manage and this book is packed with useful tips on how to practice, a list of scales up to grade 3 and some manuscript for your own ideas. Students beyond grade 3 will still enjoy using the harder duets so this book will repay you many times over.
