Five note scales that pack a punch!

Pentatonic Scales

Learning how to sing pentatonic scales is great fun and super important if you want to sing genres like rock, pop and RnB.

Teaching your ear to hear the nuance of both the major and minor pentatonic tonalities empowers your voice to be more responsive to the stylistic nuance needed to sing modern contemporary genres.

The major pentatonic scale is made up of five notes: the tonic, second, third, fifth and sixth notes of its corresponding major heptatonic scale. The minor pentatonic scale also has five notes but is slightly different. Where the major pentatonic scale omits the fourth and seventh of the major heptatonic scale, the minor pentatonic scale omits the second and sixth degrees of the natural minor heptatonic scale.
