About This Class

The pentatonic scales are. indeed, 'nearly music already'!

Applying easy-to-understand repeating patterns to the pentatonic scale-tones is a sure way of creating melodic improvisations.

Skill in hearing pentatonic scales will improve your paying-by-ear abilities - they're used again and again, but remain as fresh and attractive as ever.

Playing the study in different keys opens your musical ear to the inner workings of the scale-tone patterns.
