Scale Poker

Here is another method to make sure you don’t end up with a few good scales and some other bad ones.

For this method you will need an old pack of playing cards and a marker pen.

On the face of each card write the following:

  • Key (ie Bb)
  • Type (ie major/minor)
  • Range (ie a twelth)
  • Articulation (ie staccato)

Once you have done this for all your scales shuffle the cards and deal yourself 5 cards from the top of the pack. Play each of these scales correctly 3 times.
