Reply To: Scale motivation
I always encourage learning scales as recipe ingredients to repertoire. Since your class is ‘AWESOME in every respect’ – introduce your scales slightly differently. I enjoy having a series of scales, arpeggios, thirds, and a special sequence with corresponding rhythms (from the music). They can help finding sequences/areas where the scales are actually utilized in the music. You are so proud of your orchestra. See if they can enjoy making you proud by learning the scales!
Best of everything!
