The technical exercises are important in piano studying, because it strengthens the fingers, gives the fingers flexibility, and adds to your knowledge of the piano. The scales, etc... can be used as a warm-up routine. Studying the basics will help you understand the theory of the piano, and will aid you in mastering the circle of keys.

Of course, the scales are used as a bridge to the new melody in fugues for example, or just as the main. The arpeggios are important to ornament the melody; often used in church organ, as a decorative way of phrasing. The baroque period is remarkable in virtuosism terms, it's the principal characteristic, as like as complex harmony and melodies, with a great contrapuntistic coordination.

In the music world a minute scale is used for practicing scales. It is the performing a musical scale, the notes up and down in an octave, in under a minute.

It all depends on your grading system. But for fourth grade I would assume you would need to know at least C and G. All the other scales, I'm not sure. Some may be required to play arpeggios as well.

find songs out of your range and keep practicing and you will be able to reach them.however, do not strain your voice. work at it slowly. also, keep practicing the scales.

You learn stuff like different types of notes and rests, key signatures up to seven sharps or flats, inversions, atonality, enharmonic scales, composing, transposing, accidentals, Italian words, french words, German words, ties, slurs, brackets, chords, augmented chords and intervals, diminished chords and intervals, double sharps, double flats, accents, simple and compound time signatures, treble clef, bass clef, tenor clef, alto clef, drum kit clef, staccatos, tenutos, triplets, acciaccaturas, appoggiaturas, diminuendos, accelerandos, rallentandos, crescendos, dynamics, tempo, timbre, glissandos, grace notes, perfect cadences, imperfect cadences, interrupted cadences, plagal cadences, intervals, trills, pizzicato, argo, mutes, tremolos, fermatas, marcatos, staccatissimos, upbows, downbows, natural sharps, quarter sharps, quarter flats, natural flats, three quarter sharps, three quarter flats, repeats, codas, ritardandos, turns, melody, harmony, ground basses, ossias, divisions, upbeats, rhythm, texture, structure, major scales, harmonic minor sacles, melodic minor scales, natural minor scales, octatonic scales, pentonic scales, prime rows, retrogrades, retrograde inversions, modulations, syncopation, root positions, triads, consonance, dissonance, monophony, polyphony, heterophony, homophony, monody and much more. You'll need to be more specific next time.

If you're asking how many scales there are, there's many. I'm doing this in my head really, but as far as I know, there's 15 major scales; up to 7 sharps, 7 flats, then C with none. Then there's 3 types of minor scales for each key, so that's another 45. So 60 major and minor i guess, and that's not even counting the different octave ranges. There's also chromatic scales, pentascales, arpeggios. The list goes on.

Well you obviously will need to practice to get better. What I would do is spend a couple minutes practicing scales and then practice singing karaoke using Youtube...

One can sing better by sitting up straight and allowing their diaphragm to expand. Another thing that helps is by practicing scales with an instrument such as the piano.

SCALES: Major: G, Bb, E, Db Harmonic Minor: E, G, C#, Bb Melodic Minor: E, G, C#, Bb ARPEGGIOS: Major: G, Bb, E, Db Minor: E, G, C#, Bb DOMINANT SEVENTHS: G, Bb, E, D hope this helped :)

There are musical scales, there are graduation scales, there are weighing scales and there are reptilian scales.

Always warm up before you sing. Always. You will want to whoop and sigh, and speak like Julia Childs, to find your center of resonance. You'll be able to feel the buzz between your eyes when you find the right place. Then you'll know you have a safe sound to work with. Warm ups can be anything. It can be humming a tune, always softly at first, or practicing scales and arpeggios. If you haven't yet, find a vocal coach to work with you. That is the easiest way to get better in a vocally safe fashion.

Fins are used for direction. For example: A shark uses it's fins to descend, ascend, turn, and swim through the water. Scales are important because they act as an animals natural armor. For example: An alligator or crocodile use their scales to protect themselves from an animals hooves, teeth, or horns. -Haley Brown

yes they have scales most fish have scales.

Most fish have scales on their bodies. Some do not have scales. Eels and catfish do not have scales.

arpeggios are broken scales formulated in such a way that the player will learn the scales quickly and be able to learn songs quicker ----------------------------------------------------------- Eh... no. The above answer is pretty much wrong. An arpeggio is simply a series of notes from a chord that are played note-by-note, instead of being played all at once. ------------------------------------------------------------ Sorry, guy above me, but you are wrong in a way too. Arpeggios can also be every other note of a scale played. For example: Take the C Mixolydian 2 octave scale for example, play it, now play every other note of it. You have the C mixolydian 2 octave ARPEGGIO!!! Heres the C mixolydian 2 octave scale in tab: |---------------------------------------------------------| |-------------------------------------------10-11-13--| |Start--------------------------9-10-12---------------| |----------------7-8-10-12--------------------------| |-V------7-8-10----------------------------------------| |-8-10--------------------------------------------------| Heres the C mixolydian 2 octvar ARPEGGIO! |--------------------------------------| |---------------------------------11--| |Start------------------9--12-------| |--------------8--10---------------| |-V----7--10------------------------| |-8-----------------------------------|

No, it does not have scales.

Yes, lizards do have scales. All reptiles have scales.

Mamals dont have scales, repitiles have scales.

I had to use the other scales to measure the scales, but the scales on every scale were quite inaccurate.
