Band Directors: Isn't this how you want your
students to visualize pitch relationships anyway?

No more walking to the piano to teach half-step and whole-step patterns in band. I use these charts with 4th grade through 12th grade students. Nothing is easier or clearer. I have saved hours of instructional time because students now now visualize pitch relationships correctly.

My 4th graders, naturally, do not need the extended ranges of the woodwind charts, so I only give them the first 2 out of 3 woodwind pages. On the other hand, my high school students not only get the full range charts, but they also use the unfilled charts as a portion of their summative assessment for final exams.

Plus, students don't ask, "What's a B sharp?" anymore because they can look on their chart and clearly see that B sharp is really a C. Many students incorrectly think that all white keys are whole steps...these charts dispell that myth easily. What once took two or three lessons to teach and reinforce now takes a few short minutes.

I actually have students touch the page, telling them, "place one finger on an E and one finger on an F." Then I ask, "Now how many notes do you see in between E and F?" They answer none. I reply, "Correct! Therefore, you are looking at a half-step!" This exercise provides a tactual component to the lesson, which helps students retain the information in their long-term memoy, and engages their interest, rather than TELLING them what a helf-step or whole-step is.

I stand by these charts with a 100% satisfaction money-back GUARANTEE! I will correct the problem or send you a complete refund if you are not happy!

It has taken me about five years to complete this set, and I think it was worth the time! I use these for my students now, and I wouldn't even think about going back to conventional fingering charts. You will never find a better value!
