Resources: Getting Started:

Welcome to the Members training and tools section of Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing.  If this is your first time here, make sure you watch GETTING STARTED videos so you will be familiar with the member’s site and how to best use it.

Training Modules:  Under the link ‘Training’ you will find all the training modules.  This is the core of the Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing System.  Just as you wouldn’t read a college textbook in one day, I don’t recommend doing a marathon session and watching them all at once.  Take each module piece by piece and study it.  Watch the video several times, each time taking notes and creating a plan.  Then, act on the plan.  Feel free to move as quickly as you like, but try to play the tune along with the play-along before you move on.  This is an exercise for your brain and fingers, so give it time to build muscle.

How to get the most from the system:

Video: This is a system for anyone desiring to be successful.  Take it step by step.  If you simply watch all the modules, you will not receive the amazing ‘magical’ results that your brain will receive.  Write a ‘to do list’ (action plan).  How often will you practice?  Why?  If you don’t have a ‘why’ you will lose your momentum when you hit the mental short circuits or physical brick walls that will come just because you are learning.

Overview of the SYSTEM:

This is a system not a product!!

Follow a system and you will get results.  There are 4 Main Modules with many sections to each.  Get started by using Module 1.

Road Maps: Fun little ‘practice charts’ in the form of a roadmap.  Move a little marker as you progress through the module on your road map.

Module 1 includes a ton of simple tunes.  You are learning music theory at the same time so just have fun, play the tunes, force yourself toward perfection and move onto the next section.

Module 2: This is a series of music theory games (download) or (purchase cards).

Module 3: Increased ability to play your instrument.

Module 4: Wow music

Links and resources:

As you watch and study the videos, I will mention websites or tools you might find helpful.  Some of the tools have been created by ‘Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing’.  Others are just great possibilities for improvement.
