Major Scale Assessment Spinners for Instrumental Students
Do you have an instrumental music student who only practices the C major or Bb scale at home? In order to motivate your students to practice ALL of their assigned scales, I've created these EDITABLE scale spinners! The best part is that the probability of landing on the C Major scale is almost nil. The harder the scale, the bigger the piece of the pie. Even reluctant students can't resist spinning the scale to reveal their fate.

The scales are also editable, so you can customize the spinners by changing the scales. You could also add a "student choice" or "teacher choice" slice. All you need is a pencil and a paper clip.

For students who are preparing for auditions, I'll have them spin the wheel multiple times and test more scales.

You can play this PDF version on your iPad, phone, or tablet by using a lead pencil, without any lead exposed (or any other slim implement).

Spinners included:
(All spinners include C)
2 choices of any scale being tested
1 Sharp/Flat
2 Sharps/Flats
3 Sharps/Flats
4 Sharps/Flats
6 Sharps/Flats (can be used for 5 #s/bs - because of enharmonics)
7 Sharps/Flats (The Circle of 5ths)

Perfect for band, orchestra, piano, and private lessons!
