Music is connected in all elements. We cannot isolate a piece to teach without involving any aural awareness, and neither can we teach theory without ‘hearing’ the theory, (e.g. we have to hear the pitch of a sharpened note when we teach the accidental - sharp ‘#’). This cohesive organisation of thoughts and actions will make your lessons invaluable and interesting to your students. With it intertwined together, the lessons becomes ‘alive’ and musically enriching. — The ART of Teaching by Alice Chua

Playing Scales is Fun
Watch Down the Rabbit Hole from The ART of Teaching (AoT)Video

We all know the benefits of playing scales.
Why practise scales?
Playing scales inevitably helps to develop pianist skills thus improving keyboard fluency. Posture, hand position, co-ordination, balance between hands and movement of the arm all can be checked when playing scales. Most importantly, the sense of tonality and pattern can be acquired through playing scales - this speeds up the learning of NEW PIECES (a benefit when attempting sight-reading tests). This also develops playing with an even and a quality tone. This builds aural awareness. It is a good practice to encourage students to sing the scales if within vocal range. Playing scales from two to four octaves throughout all grade syllabus increases familiarity with the geography of the piano.

The ART of Teaching (AoT) is written specially for teachers who are teaching beginners. It is written in simple instruction and AoT is very much suited to be used alongside all piano tutor books and graded syllabus as teaching music elements are applicable to all piano tutor books — pieces, scales, sight-reading, aural training, theory, composition, improvisation and technique building. Let’s move on together for a more ‘musical’ music education for the new generation. They deserve a better music education than ours!

Practical and theory are not two entirely different, separate concepts. By incorporating theory with practical, the musician is able to develop a further understanding of the music, the ability to improvise or transpose certain passages to suit their style of playing, or to create their very own brand of accompaniment. - Helen Yeo, Musical Moments
