Harmonic Piano Scales

Many years ago I came across a short scale trifold from Faber and Hal Leonard that focuses on 1 and 2 Octaves of Major and Minor scales. Yet recently I've been focusing on Harmonic Minors which are tons of fun to teach. Here are the links:

Faber and Hal Leonard utilize key signatures, yet also incorporate finger numbers and shows the sharps and flats in the scale. This has been a lifesaver for explaining scales. If you don't have this resource, consider it as an option.

The other books are from KJOS called Scale Skills books 3 and 4, which include the major and the three minors: natural, harmonic and melodic. Book 3 includes triad inversions, chord progressions and two octave arpeggios. Here is the link:

Book 4 includes triads in the scale; arpeggios in root, 1st and 2nd inversion, primary chord progressions and two octave tonic trait arpeggios. Here's the link

KJOS includes more materials, yet it don't include all of the fingering and you will have to explain the key signatures to your students. Yet it is filled with tons of fun material to help students be successful.

What are some of your favorite scale books and what do you like to teach about scales? Would like to know. Thanks for your support. Blessings.
