The focus for this book is Minor Scales. They are never fun to teach so I have developed a series of activites to make it more interesting. The students learn about Minor scales, chord qualities, transposition, the circle of fifths and score analysis through the works of Beethoven, The Pussycat Dolls and even a traditional Russian Folksong. The activities include internet research as well as listening guides, analysis and compositional tasks. All plans for the teacher included as well as all the worksheets for the students. Youtube links can be used for the audio or you can purchase the recordings from iTunes.
