Piano Scales Helps to learn songs
Piano Scales – This is something which you will need to understand as quickly as possible if you want to be able to play songs on your own. All the songs are based on some common scales so the quickly you learn them, the sooner you will be able to play songs.
Difficult or Boring?
If you heard from somewhere that Piano scales are difficult or boring to play, I would advice you to please ignore it. It is not at all true; they are not at all difficult to learn. And as far as boring is concerned, you don’t have to play them day in and day out. You need to first learn to play them and then probably play them as warm-ups before you start your practice session.
Advantages of playing Scales
The main advantage is that it will help you to play songs on your own. All the songs are based on some scale so it becomes easier to figure out the notes of a song once your basic understanding about scales is clear. The other advantage is that it serves as a good warm-up exercise before you begin your practice sessions. If you practice for around an hour, you can spend the initial 3-5 minutes practicing various Piano scales.
12 different keys – Takes time
There are many types of scales and on top of that each type can be played in 12 different keys. So if you aim to master everything, you need to give it some time. But at the same time, if you think and observe carefully how each of these scales is built, you can learn them quickly.
Besides, there is no need to learn all the 12 different keys at one go. Initially you can start with the keys of C, F, G, D, Bb, and Eb and then gradually cover all the keys.
Types of Scales
There are different types of scales but some of the popular ones are listed in the Piano Lessons page. You should begin with the Major, Minor & Chromatic scales and then gradually move onto the other scales.
