Groove Connection

major scales • arpeggios

practise like never before. workout!

Practising scales and arpeggios can seem like to be a compulsory exercise, if this is the case, then Groove Connection, is the answer for you.

This tried and tested concept features exciting musical workouts for players of all levels.  Start your lessons and practice by brushing aside monotony and getting into the Groove! This approach is rooted in the principles of music education.
Composer Klaus Dickbauer uses the pleasure of playing the instrument as the basis for learning.

The series introduces elements of music-making such as major scales and arpeggios while putting them in context with performance pieces and improvisations. Technical development becomes a means of personal expression.

Students and teachers can use the recordings to practise in pairs, groups, ensembles, individual lessons and, of course, at home, where the play-along CD replaces the other players.
