Freescaling is music theory in action. Designed by a jazz pianist, it facilitates playing by ear and improvisation even for beginners — which makes your job as a teacher much easier. Unlocking the music-making essentials in short, focused practice sessions, your students manipulate melody, rearrange chords, and use rhythm as a springboard. Along the way they learn to listen, free themselves from needless worry about “mistakes,” and generate an endless supply of music-making ideas.
Unexpectedly, theory becomes fun for your students.
Scales are useful for learning your way around the keyboard, but practicing scales is famously boring. That’s why students love to freescale instead. Here’s the D major scale played over one of the Freescaling D Major backing tracks. Press play to hear how a student naturally starts shaping the scale into personal musical phrases:
As you can hear, this is real playing, not just “practicing” with some eventual end in mind. With Freescaling, your students are making music, right away.
And scales are just the beginning. There’s more — much more — to Freescaling.
