Summer Scale Challenge


Backward Scale Practice Challenge:

  • Try practicing your scales by starting on the highest note of the scale first. Play down two octaves, then up two octaves.
  • Practice each one all slurred, all even eighth or sixteenth notes, depending on your level.
  • Use a metronome to help you build speed.
  • Try this with all twelve major scales.

Good luck! Let me know how you do!
