Budding musicians explore the nature and theory behind the pentatonic scale as well as the East Asian music it is commonly used in. Multiple extensions are suggested for learners with musical experience, as well as adaptations for those with very little experience.

Lesson Planet has been one of the primary ingredients for the mortar I need in order to successfully provide a positive learning environment for my students. It saves me the effort of weeding through the abyss of internet resources available and provides quality resources from qualified and experienced teachers. Thank You!!!
