Scales are important to master to make your etudes fluid and reliable. These three exercises will help polish your scales to wow the judges! 


 Each etude begins with a model performance and then delves into some key features and practice techniques. Remember to be patient and practice consistently. The Youtube player has a speed setting so you can playback the etude more slowly if needed.

Finally the Chromatic Scale is on almost every audition and etude in some form.... so be sure to master it!
