The aim of this exercise on scale destinations is accuracy, precision, and control over every single note in the scale. It is expected that your basic hand positions are secure at this point so now you’re aiming for more quality placement with more relaxation and economy of motion. Treating each note in the scale as a final destination will help you develop even, strong sounding, and confident scales. The goal is to reach each destination with a super high quality and confidence to spare. Make sure you really keep the quality of every note as high as possible.
