No matter how intrinsically rewarding it can be to woodshed scales, sometimes practicing the daily scales feels like a morning before coffee. I find myself wanting to spice up the routine, and my friends in the repertoire development team have provided a solution.
Did you know that SmartMusic exercises include alternate accompaniments? Notice the drop-down menu underneath the PLAY button (I’ve circled it in red here). When I select an exercise this menu displays “Piano” but check out the other options too; for this particular example, I have chosen a funky background track called “Lava Flow” to accompany my work with the natural minor scale.
SmartMusic exercises include a wide variety of accompaniments to inspire your practice. Try them out today and let us know what you think!
