This exercise on scale destinations is a step towards precision and control. It is expected that your basic hand positions are secure at this point so now you’re aiming more quality placement with more relaxation and economy of motion. Treating each note in the scale as a final destination will help develop even, strong sounding, and confident scales. Working with destination points is similar to working on phrasing or difficult passages in your pieces. The goal is to reach each destination with a high quality and confidence.
