Printouts – Scales, Arpeggios, and Thirds

I really want everyone to print these, scribble fingerings on them and learn them well. Knowing these will help a lot in anything you play.

Necessary Scales, Arpeggios and Thirds Sheets

1) Major scales, two octaves, with accidentals (sharps or flats) written in  –

( this is the same thing, but with key signatures. )

2) Major scale thirds, one octave, with key signatures –

3) Major arpeggios, two octaves, with key signatures –

4) Minor arpeggios, two octaves, with key signatures –

5) Chromatic Scale – this is a concise sheet with C, F, Bb, Eb, G, D, A Major and a chromatic scale on the bottom.

Alternative Sheets

1) Major Scales in order (ie. E, F, Gb, G, etc.). Some of them go three octaves –

2) Major Scales, one octave, then more octaves, with arpeggios and thirds. Everything’s written out clearly, with some fingerings. –

If you want to find more

I found all of these by searching google. Here are some of the sites that I found and took links from.

1) – It’s fun to read and explains why you should practice scales from a perspective that feels kind of familiar.

2)  . If you want more chromatic scale practice, they have a nice worksheet.

3) – beware : The thirds sheet shows the concert key instead of the key you are playing on clarinet. If you use that, cross out what it says and write the actual key.
