KEY SIGNATURES 4a
THE MAJOR SCALE WALK
The Goal is to walk the
Major Scale Steps
In addition to walking the scale steps in rhythm, the plan is to say the steps. After this accomplishment, the challenge will be to say note names in key.
Move all equipment aside and create an unobstructed open space. No instruments are needed.
Teachers, please ask students to stand side by side near the perimeter of the open space, and to face forward.
Now, get ready to step in time.
Whole-Step = Large Step
Half-Step = Small Step
Use your best imagination and now pretend that where you are standing at the
Step the correct step and say either
on each beat.
Set the Metronome to 60 BPM. Here we go! 1-2-3-4
Congratulations! You just walked the steps of the Major Scale.
You have arrived at Scale-Degree 8 — the
is one octave higher than where you started.
Now, please turn around and get ready to walk and say note names.
