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.
Why teach Scales and Arpeggios?

To all our Rhythm MP friends, please journey with us on and you should feel free to respond and do the activities, too. It’s the practical application of music theory that brings music to life. We encourage and welcome videos of your musical explorations based on our postings. Keep Exploring Music – telling your musical story!

Learn to play a song in more than one way!
Some of the ways include interval, two-note chords, triad, off beats, swing, arpeggio, alberti bass, scale, waltz, echo, chromatic, canon, descending bass line, counterpoint, embellishments, etc.
  • Perform the variations on a song
  • Listen to the variations
  • Analyse musical ideas
  • Your assignment is to re-arrange the piece or to apply to your favourite song

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 become ‘alive’ and musically enriching. — The ART of Teaching by Alice Chua

Let’s move on together for a more ‘MUSICAL’ music education for the new generation. They deserve a better music education than ours!
Set goals that are attainable, then slowly raise the bar. It is better to play something easier and master it, understand the character and technicalities of the piece, before moving on to more difficult pieces. Do not straightaway choose pieces that are too difficult, to avoid frustration and discouragement. - Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“Do not straightaway Google song sheets for your favourite songs. Try to DIY. Reach out with your musical sense and play out the melody. Use chord progression to add accompaniment to the melody. Decorate the tune with catchy ornaments. The song will be more meaningful with your own personal touch.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments
