scales by understanding keyboard geography rather than relying
being able to view hand shapes on the keyboard patterns
the fingering for scales is simplified and mirror fingerings
can be seen. Equally useful for students of classical or
modern piano, and for improvisors, it shows both similar
and contrary motion patterns and all major and minor chord
Early Level - all Major scales in similar and contrary
motion. Major Chord shapes
Intermediate to Advanced - All major and minor scale patterns
and their derived modes, and minor chord shapes. Harmonic
minor scales in contrary motion.

"I've just been introduced to Margaret Brandman's 'Pictorial Patterns' book for scales and chords and am absolutely loving it! She lays out all the scale patterns in such beautifully clear and concise ways.... even after all my years of teaching and thinking I knew it all, she's shown me connections I hadn't realised... Highly recommended!!" Jo Kotchie Teacher and Composer
