Practising the Piano - Multimedia eBook Series (Part 3)

Scales and Arpeggios

Scales and arpeggios are an integral part of piano exams, and many celebrated master pianists throughout history insist on a daily diet of scales for themselves and their students. However, many pianists struggle to keep motivated with their scales practice and as a result often neglect it. Practising the Piano Part 3 is a comprehensive guide to practising scales and arpeggios from the beginner to advanced levels which will enable you to:

  • Make scales practice fun and interesting with creative ways of practice scales (e.g. have you ever tried the "Russian" way?)
  • Overcome common technical challenges
  • Structure your practice and stay motivated using practice strategies, tools and resources


Numerous video demonstrations, exercises written out in manuscript and practice suggestions in addition to a number of resources and interactive tools:

  • Scales index - This section provides an index of all major, harmonic and melodic minor scales with key signatures, fingerings and variations for practice. There is also a keyboard diagram of each scale so the beginner will be able to see the note patterns at a glance.
  • Scales and arpeggios charts – Download printable practice charts for ABRSM Grades 1 through to 8 featuring a grid layout with the keys listed vertically and the types of scales horizontally. Teachers can use these to assign scales for practising in between lessons, and for students to keep a record of what they have practised.
