Level One of the Scales, Chords, & Arpeggios course consists of three exercises in each of the major and minor keys. The scale exercise uses the first five notes of the scale only, the chord exercise includes simple triads in root position and the two inversions, and the arpeggio exercise is a simple arpeggiation of the root position triad. These simple exercises allow beginner students to cover all major and minor keys with relative ease making the task of learning the scales and chords not only more enjoyable but also more useful.
Level One is recommended for those who have completed the Preparatory Book or beginners with basic music reading ability. The download includes a 36 page PDF with the three exercises in all major and minor keys (including fingering), introductory notes explaining the exercises, and MP3 recordings of the exercises in C Major and A Minor.
