'I Love to Play my Scales', Grades 3-5, is a flute scale technique book. It introduces elements of advanced scale practice such as; sequences, scales in thirds, chromatics, octaves and extended scales to the less advanced player in a grade appropriate manner. The Grade 3 section of the book works on keys of up to two sharps and flats with the highest note reaching G3. Grade 4 extends the range to A3 and works on keys with three sharps and flats. Grade 5 also extends to A3 but works on keys with four sharps and flats. There is a range of rhythms used throughout including, quavers, triplets, semiquavers and dotted rhythms with a variety of articulations. There is also a scale duet section which is fun to play with your teacher or friends. Students can access free video lessons on every scale in this book on Youtube (Search for the 'Susan O Leary' channel & lessons are located in the the 'I Love to Play My Scales' playlist). In each video, Susan plays through each exercise and suggests even more ways you can vary the written exercises in order to enhance control and coordination.
