My second book, entitled "A Modern Method for Piano Scales" was released the summer of 2022 by Hal Leonard/Berklee Press! It is the companion text for my new Berklee Online course, Piano Scales 101 (https://online.berklee.edu/courses/piano-scales-101), as well as my MOOC on Coursera , "Piano Scales for Modern Music" (https://www.coursera.org/learn/piano-scales-for-modern-music ).
The book and theses courses will teach you how to:
1.Identify, construct, practice, and use the most important scale types used in contemporary music, in all 12 keys, and understand how they relate to each other.
2. Use effective practice strategies to implement fingering techniques that lead to facility on the keyboard
3. Understand the relationship between each scale and its related chords- which particularly helps with lead sheet interpretation
4. Use these scales as melodic material in improvisation
5. Hear and identify these scales as they are used in contemporary hit songs and jazz standards.
