Last year I arranged some scale exercises from Feuillard's Daily Exercises for my students. Some of the exercises are not as hard as they look, and with a little adaptation, they don't look nearly as daunting.
Some of my favorite exercises are numbers 10-13. Here is what those pages look like in Feuillard's book:
Even the C major exercises look fairly intimidating, but the idea behind the exercises are great. Here is what I arranged for my students:
My adaptation follows the same idea, but I removed the minor scales and all but the major arpeggio. Some other differences:
- I used larger font.
- Note names are in the note heads and the fingerings are above all notes for just the first scale. Students can use it as a reference for the rest of the exercises.
- I simplified the rhythm and removed the slurs.
I only wrote these out for C, D, F, and G major, and they went well last school year. I plan on arranging a few more – there is no need to do all keys. Here are links to the pdfs if you want to use them:
