In "Scales at a Glance, Setting Music Theory on its Ear," author Clea Saal replaces the traditionally tedious task of memorizing countless scales with an unbelievably simple approach. This system turns even the most complex scale structure into something that can immediately be grasped by a student in his/her first music lesson. Even though this book was written with beginners in mind, its approach will also be an unexpected relief for the more advanced students, since it will allow them to instantly visualize the modes of any scale, and it will provide them with an effective tool to help them understand the structure of all those scales that are foreign to Western tradition, regardless of whether or not they respect the basic twelve half-steps per octave division. In less than 200 pages, this book covers a wide range of topics that includes everything from what a note is to micro-tonal systems. This book requires absolutely no previous knowledge of musical notation.
