What do you think?
Singing teachers around the world use this Pentatonic scale to teach beginners to sing because leaving out two notes from the more frequently used major scale make it much easier to sing and to improvise on. And the scale is used in a lot of well-known music. You might find yourself using it on New Year's Eve, if you get in a huddle to belt out Auld Lang Syne.
Thanks to Michelle Griffin for pointing out this great little video. Michelle conducts Mitchell Young Voices, and teaches piano and singing at Mitchell Conservatorium in Bathurst.
