Piano Visualization Tools: Scales and Modes

This tool lets you practice some of the mental aspects of playing a scale without the tiring your fingers! You can either watch an animation of the scale, or scroll through at your leisure, by making your selection in the red box. Try to notice distinctive shapes or patterns as you observe each scale or mode.

To change to a different scale, use the grey box at the bottom of the screen.
