Beginner 4 note scales

Beginner 4 note scales

An introduction to scales for young beginners. I find it is beneficial to start students early with the concept of scales, even before they can play a full octave of notes on their instrument. This sheet explains the idea of scales and how to form them, and then encourages pupils to explore playing them in different ways. Useful for instrumental and classroom music teachers and their pupils.
