Scales Continued

This addition to the site is as much for me as it is for anyone else who chances a glance at it.

I need to emphasize to all musicians the importance of scales.

Earlier this week I went to my 'mentor in music'. We worked on my solo ensemble piece. I was faltering in the piece mainly because I kept screwing up the key. He said I needed to work much harder on my scales if I wanted to get where I wanna be in music.

a CAN-DO attitude is important for advancing technique and know-how.

Remember that everyone has problems. But problems don't matter because you can do it. You just need to try.  You just need to believe.

Hey man what's the problem!
What's the scene!
Why are you so mean to me!
All the time! ALL OF THE TIME!--
