Speaking of which, I was sorting my library and came across this tome. If you really want to learn scales and become a truly artistic and phenomenal player, pick up a copy of Alberto Jonas's 288 page book on scales. Dover has recently republished this century old book.

Just so you know, it contains etudes especially written for it by composer/pianists including: Ferruccio Busoni, Alfred Cortot, Ernst von Dohnanyi, Ossip Garilowitsch, Leopold Godowsky, Josef Lhevinne, Moriz Rosenthal, emil von Sauer, just to name a few.

I remember exploring the re-published collection several months back and remember these two links being of nice value [on the topic]:



For those unfamiliar with her, Sara Davis Buechner is a concert pianist and pedagogue with quite a resume.

Well, yes, but in some ways this scale discussion has been in more depth than most, and probably was more valuable.

Previous scale discussions tended to contain too much repetition of "scales are good, do them" with too little reflection on why, and none on how. This one had more thoughtful responses, at least until near the end.
