Scales





The scales are in both Treble and Bass Clef. All scales are written in 12 different keys, ascending and descending. They can be worked on individually or as a mixed pitch ensemble (Concert Band).

Once the player becomes exposed to some different types of scales, he may begin to enjoy practicing them.
