          Nice title
          Complete waste of money, thought finally somebody had made a book containing all scales, instead this is a mess of scales; only major scales with one sharp (G) and one flat (F) and some parallel minor scales (for instance melodic minor, no beginner needs to learn that in my opinion), I needed a book for my students to have fun with learning more than these very basic scales. If the publisher continues to put out books with only 2 scales in each it could of course earn them a lot of money.

          At last - a scale book that makes scales fun for students. Some of the piano parts are quite tricky, but well worth spending a bit of time on - and the backing tracks work really well too.
