C Major Street

It's back to school next week, can't believe the summer has just flown by. I sat down this morning and had intended to continue to work on lesson plans since classes are starting next week! But, as I was thinking about how I can help students "see" the fingering patterns for scales, especially when students will be transitioning on to 2 octave scales, I got carried away with creating my C Major Street design above. 

I thought this visual will help students get the idea of groups of 3s and 4s when working on Group 1 scales. I am excited to show this to my students when they come back next week.

On the topic of scales, be sure to also check out Susan Paradis' post and her lovely printable that provides students with a great hands on activity for building major and minor scales, I LOVE it!!

Please leave me a comment if you find this visual helpful and if you may be interested in using it for your studio, I'll be happy to send you the download link for the pdf file. Be sure to leave your email address or drop me an email at wendy@pianoescapades.com

Hope your summer has been relaxing and best wishes for a wonderful and fulfilling teaching year!
