I went through Phase 3 of C Major Scales. It is tedious, time-consuming and totally not fun. Completion requires playing four octaves with both hands, ascending and descending at a 90 bpm. The fingering is different in the middle octaves, adding to the difficulty.
Can I accomplish this? Yes, eventually. It will take longer than a week though, and I wonder if doing scales across four octaves is the skill to have right now when there's so much else to learn.
I've decided to tweak Phase 3. Instead of four octaves, I only need to ace two. Then I move on the the next scale.
There's something else I should mention but too tired to remember.
