Circle of 5ths Level 3 – Pentatonic Scale

The Circle of 5ths is a great musical tool to use for:

  • composing
  • improvisation
  • playing chord progression
  • finding major scales
  • finding key signatures
  • finding secondary dominants
  • finding tritone chords

Many people are scared of improvisation because they do not know how to create music!

There is a musician inside all of us waiting for us to discover!

In Circle of 5ths Level 3, you are going to learn about pentatonic scales to help release the musician inside you!  You want to communicate the music that is inside you with others, just like we want to tell our stories to our friends.  To communicate stories, we use language.  To communicate music, we use notes.

Start playing around with the Pentatonic Scales:

Game: At what speed are you able to Read Music Notes?

I am presently working on “Read 22 Music Notes Fast – Level 3”.  This course is going to concentrate on working on ‘speed’ so that you can eventually quickly sight read these notes on music score.

To be able to “sight-read”, you need to be able to read ‘individual’ music notes quickly first!
Sight reading skill is a completely differently skill which in due time I will do an entire course on.
For now, learn to read individual music notes ACCURATELY & with SPEED.

You need to master ONE skill at a time.


Test yourself with these 4 videos:  They are at different speed.

76 BPM – Walking Pace

92 BPM – Moderate Speed

120 BPM – Lively & Fast Speed

200 BPM – For Super Genius

Learn How To Read Music Notes Fast

Music is a Universal Language

Music has its own language by which it communicates messages to the listeners.

Music is a “universal language” that communicates powerfully to anyone around the world. Whether you are in Africa, China, America, England, Australia, India …. we all have a common music language that every culture understands.

We can’t travel around the world and be able to communicate with everyone using our native language. Even when we use body language or gestures to communicate, there is limitation. But every culture has one thing in common – Music. It is the one thing that is not reliant upon words & grammar, but emotions through music which can move a person to laugh, to cry, and to get up and dance. This is why music is a universal language.

Music works in all cultures with many sounds, emotions, instruments, beats, and genres that everyday, millions of people are listening and playing some sort of music. It reaches every part of us because music is a kind of expression and we all feel a need to express ourselves through music in different moods. For musicians, we like to connect with each other through music.

Music can tell stories. Each song is like a story conveying our current moods. And we create these moods with the music notes that you see on sheet music.

This is why you want to learn this music language.
It is written music.
And you communicate the written music by singing the notes.


Music is actually the simplest written language for anyone to learn.

You only need to know 7 alphabet letters: A B C D E F G. Once you learn the basics, and know how to make use of what the traditional method teaches, you can then use my Unique method to tap into the power of reading music notes quickly with confidence. This will help you overcome all the years of fear and frustrations in reading music, and the reward you receive is for a life time.

You will soon discover reading music is a lot of fun when you use my Music Note Attack Method! It helps you process your learning quickly and retain everything into memory! There is no need to count. No need to fumble your way through.

You learn to see the notes and read them like you read the names of your friends.

I receive so many requests from students who want to learn to read music notes quickly that I finally need to write out this unique method – step by step – exercises by exercises – so that all BEGINNERS will gain confidence immediately to read notes quickly and overcome the fear of reading music notes. It does not take years to learn to read music notes.

Use my Method and you can overcome all frustrations and struggles in reading Music Notes.



Rosa’s Music Note Attack Method Courses:

1. Intuitive Visual Recognition

2. Visual Memory in the Brain

3. Say it out Loud to store in Brain

4. Practice Smart Exercises


This is a UNIQUE Method that I develop for BEGINNERS who wants to learn how to read notes and to read them QUICKLY!

  • We are dealing specifically in the area of reading the music notes on music staff in both the Treble Clef and Bass Clef.
  • We are NOT dealing with reading other music symbols, rhythm, or value and duration of notes.

We want to quickly help BEGINNERS to master the Music Language of A-B-C-D-E-F-G so that they can quickly identify the notes on the music staff like they call out the names of their friends.


These courses can also be used by Music Teachers or Parents who want to teach their children to ‘Read Music Fast’. You can use these videos to guide your children in this Music Note Attack Method. Children learn much faster in this way as they learn to visualize these notes in their brain. In fact, they learn much faster than adults because they follow instructions, whereas adults are not as good as following through instructions

Circle of 5ths Level 2 – Tritone, Tritone Chord Substitutions and Song Applications

Many music students are totally confused regarding Tritones and how to use Tritone Chord Substitutios into their music and composition.

We need to pay special attention to Tritones and learn the tips and tricks to harmonize your songs with Tritone Chords. They give you such beautiful tension sounds that you often hear in jazz music.

Professional musicians use Tritone Chord Substitutions a lot.

I have now written a book to explain thoroughly what Tritones are and how to put in Tritone Chord Substitutions. You need to know how to find them easily in the Circle of 5ths. Learn also when you cannot put in Tritone Chord Subtitutions.

This book is written for all musicians, whether you are a guitarist, pianist, or a ukulele player. This music theory in the Circle of 5ths works for all instruments, and not specifically for pianists.


I am now in the process of creating a full Video Lecture Course on Tritones and its applications to songs. The music theory will be fully explained as never before. In the local workshop, it is a one day workshop where enrollment is US$500.

I am now making this workshop available in my Piano Online School at $199 here with 70% off meaning students only need to pay about $60.

==> Sign here to for FREE to get coupons notice as New Courses get launched.

While you wait for the video course on the Circle of 5ths to launch (possibly at the end of June), you can now get the material in book format at Kindle for only $2.99. When the book launches, the book will be charged at the regular price of $9.99

THANKSGIVING SEASON – 80% Giveaway to all my students

Today is November 15, 2014.  I began teaching piano online in April 10, 2009.

You can read about this in Piano World – Learn Piano With Rosa by BigbeardDale


It’s been 5 years and now with new technology with ipads, androids, tablets, smartphones, Online schools are gaining more and more popular as we enter into 2015. When I started teaching piano, I began with workshops and selling hard copies of my piano method books.  Then I turned my books into digital books and videos so people can buy on the net. Now, people want them on their mobile devices.

And during these 5 years, at the request of students, I began to develop one course to another meeting their learning needs.  Many students have been desperate in search of structured piano courses to guide them from one level to the next. It is in response to their requests that I have developed over 56 individual stand alone courses for them. You can see them in my Learn Piano With Rosa website.

And most important of all, during all the development I have a retired music teacher, Alene Thornton, to go over ALL my materials, test all my videos, do all my courses before any of the launches.  Even though she is a music teacher, she always approaches my course as if she is a beginner to see if there is anything there is unclear or concepts assumed that need further clarification.  So we have had tons of emails back and forth to get all my courses better and better.  Alene is not an affiliate and gained nothing financially but what we have gained is far more than what money can give us, a treasure of life time friendship sharing our music passion, piano passion and even our personal and family lives. I am very grateful to my kindred friend and mentor.

In the meantime, while I was developing my piano courses, another friend Rosanna Sun, developed my entire website for me. Words cannot express how grateful I am to her detail help in this area.

While my piano site was developing, we all helped our friend Diane Mathison to start her piano online site: Learn Piano With Elssa. We bonded and the world started to take notice of us, our piano passion, and our willingness to share our knowledge of piano playing with them.  Together, we have made thousands of piano friends all over the world, and YOU included.


In July 2014, my Piano Online School started.

This has been a long journey.  But only within 5 years time –  How much was accomplished in such a short time!



With the new Piano Online School, I am paying monthly fees to get my online school set up to host all my videos and courses. In this way, whenever students want to learn piano, they will have all the courses at their finger tips without searching all over the computer.


The Piano Online School is structured a bit differently from my ‘packaged’ courses.  With my packaged courses, I can put them into ebooks in pdf format and videos.  Students just download the course and learn from their computer.


With Online School, I have to re-do the courses into Lectures and New HD Video Formatting to suit the needs of the mobile devices.  All my videos had to be upgraded.  And those of you who are in my online school would notice that the videos are highly upgraded without any background white noises.


As I develop my Online School, I am updating all the old courses material with NEW Screencast Video Lectures for students to have more FUN to grasp music concept even faster and easier.  When everything is visually done in front of you, you see things in one flash that you are not able to see in ‘reading’ format.  So 80% of my time are now spent on doing Screencast videos to upgrade the courses.


I realize that many students have bought all my previous courses, and this is why whenever I launch my online courses, I offer 80% discount to ALL students, so that returning students get new value in courses that they have bought previously with these NEWLY ADDED Screencast lecture videos.  Believe me, the Early Bird Launch with Coupons is the BEST deal always! It’s for you, my long term regular students  that there is the 80% special offer!  And new students are now reaping this benefit also!


While I am upgrading my online courses, I am also creating BRAND NEW courses.  Yeahhh….. this is what my returning students want as they write to me recently requesting new courses.  And the Circle of 5ths is one of them.


I am happy to announce to you that the BRAND NEW Course on CIrcle of 5ths is Launching at my Piano Online School.  This is selling very well at Udemy Launch with 1174 students enrolling there.  Although the course is sold at $249, I have only made $194 in there. With Udemy being a social site,  there are a lot of paying ads and affiliates there selling my courses for which I only get a very small fraction of money. But in return, my presence is made.


The New Course: Watch my Circle of 5ths Video:






Special for my Students – $69  (Save $180)

Circle of 5ths Fully Revealed





Get All 10 Online Courses –  76% Special For Rosa’s Students


There are now 10 online courses on my site.  The total price is $611.

You can get 76% discount by enrolling in today for these 10 courses.

For students who have already enrolled into my online courses, you do NOT need to take this offer.  You have already gotten the BEST discount at the early bird launch last month.  This is for students who have not enrolled into the school yet.  Because it is thanskgiving, I am giving out this  76% discount special.:)



 $149  Now (Save $462)





Early Bird Monthly Membership – Subscription Plan


Some of you have asked whether it is possible to join a subscription plan to my online school.  Yes.  If you do not plan to enroll into my online school course by course, you can consider subscribing the next best deal — monthly membership!


Yes!!!  In this Thanksgiving Season, I am allowing any students, new or returning, to join the Monthly Subscription Plan at $29/month  .  The price will increase to $37/month on December 31, 2014.  


The subscription plan works in this way:  

1. You get admitted to all my courses on site and any new courses that are launched.

2.  You pay a regular subscription of  $29/month and can stop when you have finished all the courses.

3.  When you stop subscribing, you will have no access to my piano online courses anymore.


If you plan to join the subscription plan, you do not need to buy the courses when they launch.  This is different from buying each course and enrolling into them. When you buy each course, you get life-time access!  With the subscription plan, you get access into the courses on monthly basis.




We look forward to a FUN year ahead of us with more piano learning, more beautiful piano playing into Christmas,
