All-State Scales & Etudes
Have all scales and one of the two etudes performance ready for when we return.
Below, you will find scales and solo etudes (French for "studies") for you to work on while you are at home. This music is challenging and is meant to be challenging. The best way to tackle this music is one measure at a time and to break down each rhythm into its subdivisions. Once you have the rhythms, then go back and add the slurs, articulations, and dynamics. Remember, it is always best to practice slow and work your way fast! Take your time and do not rush through the problem-solving process. Please email me with any questions or if you would like to schedule a lesson over Zoom. I am available. Practice at least 20 minutes a day!
