Unit C11 – Technical Exercises

Starting in Stage C, the demands of Unit 11 are increased so students are able to play scales in all keys a Stage H. To successfully complete Unit C11 students should know:

  • what the tonic note of a scale is (specifically of C major, but potentially able to work it out for other keys).
  • what the dominant note of a scale is (specifically of C major, but potentially able to work it out for other keys).

They should be able to play 2 octave scales, hands separately and 1 octave scales, hands together in the following keys:

  • C major
  • G major
  • D major

Students should be able to do these from memory, and with an even tone and steady pace.
