Scales on the Piano!


Recommended Posts

I think scales are important for several reasons both from a practical and theoretical point of view. However I believe even more in the idea of isolating difficult sections of the music and making technical exercises out of them. The fact that such sections were once difficult and have now been made easy would suggest that my technique has advanced each time I have conquered a difficult section.

I said scales were important. I also believe in the practice of difficult sections. BTW who said scales alone improved dexterity? I think intelligent practice will cover all facets of technique and not just dexterity. To put it another way, practice of difficult sections helps greatly by bringing several areas of technique into play at the same time.

When practising difficult sections the bridging bars before and after the difficult section must also be included for a smooth transition.
