SCALE JAIL

March 1 - APRIL 30

Scale Jail is almost upon us. Bad news is you have been sentenced from MARCH 1 - APRIL 30.  Good news is, you can escape early. How quickly you escape is up to you. Scale Jail is MANDATORY. I use this as a gauge to see if you are willing to do the work it requires to stay in my studio.

 

Here are the rules. They are very simple. Different rules for beginners, junior high and high school.

ALL SCALES MUST BE MEMORIZED AND PLAYED WITH A METRONOME

 

Grades 6-7

12 major scales - quarter = 90 in 8th notes

2-octave scales - Gb, G, Ab, A

1-octave scales - Bb, B, C, Db, D, Eb, E, F

Chromatic - G below the staff to G above the staff - quarter = 70 in 8th notes

Junior High - Grade 8

12 major scales - quarter = 60 in 16th notes

2-octave scales - Gb, G, Ab, A, Bb, B, C

1-octave scales - Db, D, Eb, E, F

Chromatic - Gb below the staff to C above the staff - quarter = 90 in 8th note triplets

 

High School - Grades 9-12

12 major scales - quarter = 80 in 16th notes

2-octave scales - Gb, G, Ab, A, Bb, B, C

1-octave scales - Db, D, Eb, E, F

Chromatic - Gb below the staff to C above the staff - quarter = 100 in 8th note triplets

 

You get 3 chances to pass off a scale

You can pass off as many scales in one day as you want

You must play with a metronome and stay in tempo

You can miss 1 note per scale. If you miss more than that, you must do it again.

 

When you pass off all the scales, there will be a prize.

I will also put your name on my website. Bragging rights are at stake here. Who can escape the soonest?

 

You only get the prize if you get out of SCALE JAIL on or before May 1.
