Scales Contest

May 13th, 2017 Saturday at 2:00pm

Ever wonder why musicians spend so much time practicing scales? If you hadn’t realized it, scales are the things from which most music is made. Practicing scales also helps develop proper technique, dexterity, timing, muscle memory and ear training. Prizes will be awarded to the top contestants who demonstrate the most proficiency at playing scales. So start warming up those fingers and practice your scales!
