2 Learning Major and Minor Scales: How to construct a Major Scale How to draw a Major Scale on a given noteHow to construct a minor scaleHow to draw a minor scale on a given noteHow to tell the difference between aMajor and minor scale by earIf you have trouble at any time doing this tutorial –ask Mr. Pearce for a helper, to assist you in completingToday’s work!
3 What we have learned so far: Treble and Bass clef note namesWhole steps and half stepsHalf steps are the notes that are closest to each otherWhole steps skip the next note and go to the next available note
4 Now you are ready to learn how to construct To help us understand whole and half stepswe also used pictures:= whole= halfAnd we made blocks:= whole= halfNow you are ready to learn how to constructmajor and minor scales!
5 For the Major scale: The formula is “two-and-a-half, three-and-a-half,.”Look at the chart below to see how this works,starting on the note “C.”FROM:
6 See how the Major Scale is built on the note “E-flat.:”
7 See how the Major Scale is built on the note “D:”
8 Now, fill in the work sheet you have, to show you have mastered major scales,and hand it to Mr. Pearce before moving on.
9 For the minor scale: The formula is “one-and-a-half, two-and-a-half, two.”Look at the chart below to see how this works,starting on the note “A.”FROM:
10 See how the minor Scale is built on the note “G-sharp:”
11 See how the minor Scale is built on the note “C:”
12 To show that you can construct minor scales, use one of the following: Take two pictures of different objects with your camera phone, and place the pictures in the correct order of the minor scale formula (to represent the whole and half steps), in a WORD document, showing me your results, or: (next slide, please)
13 Take the blocks of we made in class to represent whole steps and half steps and place them in the correct order to represent the construction of a minor scale, then show me your efforts or: (next slide please)
14 handing your results in to me. Listen to the MP3 file of five scales I recorded for you and placed onwrite down which of the five MP3 files are minor scales,handing your results in to me.
15 Now that you have completed this tutorial – really prove to me you know what you are doing bygoing to our class blog at:When you get there, please post the following entries under your name:Major scale built on C-sharp written by note letter nameMinor scale built on E, written by note later name
