Music On The Move
Pictorial Patterns - Margaret Brandman
Pictorial Patterns is a unique book which allows pianists to learn scales by understanding keyboard geography rather than relying on notation.
Through being able to view hand shapes on the keyboard patterns the fingering for scales is simplified and mirror fingerings can be seen. Equally useful for students of classical or modern piano, and for improvisors, it shows both similar and contrary motion patterns and all major and minor chord shapes.
In three sections:
- 1) Early Level - all major scales and chords
- 2) Intermediate to Advanced - All major, minor patterns and their derived modes, and chords
- 3) A Unique Scale and Chord Practice Planner including four note chords, chord resolutions plus connected scales and chords
