Top-Octave Sequence

Top-Octave Sequence

The top octave of 3-octave scales is more difficult than the lower two octaves, therefore extra practice here is recommended.

Practise the top octaves of consecutive scales, shifting up by a half-step (semitone) each time. Use vibrato at the modulation to help emphasise the new key and encourage release in the hand.
