Bach Playing Cards

Title:

Musical Scale Playing Cards

Description:

Here is a unique new way for all instrumentalists to practice and improve their scale-playing: Music Scale Playing Cards.
This regular size deck of cards does double duty for Solitaire and for scale review. Small enough to fit into most instrument cases, the deck is easy to take to practices, auditions, gigs, or for a studio waiting area. In addition to the standard 52 playing cards and two jokers, each of these cards has the letter names of one scale printed on it. Spades = major scales, hearts = melodic minor scales, clubs = natural minor scales, and diamonds = harmonic scale tones. The face cards contain original composer art --Bach is the King of Spades.
For scale practice, shuffle the deck, draw a card, and practice the scale listed on the card. (Instructions are included with the deck on how best to use the cards to improve scales, range, and speed.)
What Others Say:
This deck is the perfect one for us to take along on vacation. We can review scales while away from regular piano practice, and use them to play other card games too!
. . .a Homeschool Mom

Music scale cards are a fun and unique way to practice your musical scales, and they are also a regular deck of cards!
Each card of a regular deck of cards is printed with a scale name and the notes in that scale. The deck can be used in a practice room to learn scales, or it can be used on a band touring bus to play a game of cards. This is a regular size deck of cards which means it can fit into almost any instrument case or gig bag. The face cards contain original artwork of various composers (Bach featured at left), the standard number cards, two jokers (also original artwork), and uniform backs.
