At miAim, we are interested in disseminating the truth about the improvised line, scales, chord progressions,
The Cycle of Keys and The Cycle of Modes.
One method we do this is via our YouTube Channel. Beginning in March 2018, every Saturday we upload a new short, fun and informative video. In addition to talking about the days music topic, we use various charts with live piano/ organ demonstrations to clearly explain the information being explored.
Below are links to the actual charts we have used in our videos for your own reference while you practice and when you re-watch them on YouTube.
The chart titles closely match the video titles in which they are used for easy reference.
Yes! All these music charts are FREE!!!
You can download or print directly from your web browser NOW.
Just click the blue link to open each chart in a new PDF reader tab.

What we will do is give you the tools to create your own musical ideas
when improvising and composing.
