    About this course

    Whether you play classical music or heavy metal, we all use the same 12 notes-the chromatic scale. 

    This is a fun course that will teach you:

    • How to build a chromatic scale in every key
    • How to pull a Major scale from the chromatic scale
    • How to pull a Minor scale from the chromatic scale
    • How to pull a Pentatonic scale from the chromatic scale

    You will start by downloading a steel drum app from the internet, then learn to build scales. The steel drum is like no other instrument, as you'll see in the video, because the note layout is designed on the circle of fifths. 

    Please have fun and enjoy the class!
