ToneGym has introduced a new tool that helps musicians to better understand scales, their DNAs, and how they are built.

The diatonic-harmony-chords section in Music Scales Tool will help users to familiarize themselves with the sound of each scale and its diatonic harmonization, while the non-diatonic scales section will help them to explore less common scales.

The scale-finder section will enable users to find a musical scale by a given set of notes.

A music scale is a sequence of musical notes arranged according to a specific formula. This formula can begin on any of the 12 tones in the Western musical alphabet, to produce the scale that corresponds with that note.

Scales are the true building block of all melody and harmony. Learning scales is an invaluable tool in playing or writing music.

The Music Scales Tool will help you:

  • Get better at identifying scales by ear.
  • Quickly identify any scale by its notes.
  • Understand the relations between scales.
  • Learn the theory behind musical scales.
  • Understand the relations between scales.
  • Listen to each diatonic mode’s harmonization and chords.
  • Songwriting shortcuts.
  • Improve your musical vocabulary.

The Music Scales Tool is free, and available online at the ToneGym website.
