Here is an enjoyable (though challenging) way to practice the harmonic minor scale. It is essential while practicing to keep your imagination engaged. If you practice scales in a dry, machine-like manner, then your performances will be lifeless. If you keep your imagination engaged while perfecting your technique, then your performances will be filled with joy for you and your audience will be captivated by your playing. Try playing this phrase in all 12 keys. I started on middle C and repeated the phrase in all keys up to a starting note of first-space E using a metronome marking of dotted quarter = 110. If you can’t figure it out in the other keys (using the syllables indicated below), contact me by email for a free chart.
