Inkscape Extension: Musical Scales

Published › April 30, 2012 0 Comments


Extension for automatic generation schemes of musical scale and chords on piano.

This project aims to help in learning musical scales. The simplest way to learn anything is to practise regularly. So, if we want to learn basic theory of building chords and progression, we need to learn musical scales and intervals by practising with them regularly.

I decided to create help-sheets with tabled schemes. First of all I want to prepare sheets with natural scales (and understand the difference between natural scales and major/minor scales if there are any). After that it would be possible to understand how to build chords and progressions.

Inkscape is quite a nice tool to prepare such cards. Clear and self-evident way is to simply create a picture of a piano keyboard and place markers on proper keys. But it is very routine and boringly.

Much more convenient and simpler way would be creation the schemes automatically.
