Frederick Stocken: Scale Shapes For Piano Grade 4 (Original Edition)
Based on the requirements of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, Scale Shapes is an invaluable aid for grade exams and general progress, which uses a new diagram-based way to learn piano scales using the Stocken Method. The unique Keyboard Diagrams provide a system which allows the student to concentrate exclusively on the physical shapes of the technical exercise and in consequence, to focus on the acquisition of 'good legato, even fingers, firm tone and a musical curve'. This method is not designed to be a substitute for the acquisition of the ability to read staff notation, but the complications of staff notation are no longer linked to the physical complications of a given scale with this method.
