Piano Scale Sheets
Piano scale sheets are for reference if a student forgets how to play a scale between lessons. Parents, scale sheets are meant for reference only. Do not let your child(ren) use these sheets more than absolutely necessary--they will still need to have their scales memorized for their lessons!
Note: Students need to know finger numbers to be able to read the scale sheets. Each beginning lesson book has a diagram showing finger numbers somewhere in the first few pages (before the first song).
