Staccato scales?
on: August 10, 2005, 02:59:39 AM
Can someone please explain to me the purpose of practicing scales staccato? My guess is that it allows the fingers to work with the whole hand. Or is it simply just to improve staccato playing?

When you play staccato, it's easier to tell when the notes are toghether.

Other than that and to improve staccato playing, i'm not sure.
