Any fellow band geeks on here? :P I need some advice.

After marching season, every year each band student earns their chair by playing their twelve major scales. I really want to be 1, 2, or 3rd chair this year. But I have a problem.. I don't know my scales! Every time I tried to sit down and practice them I get bored. I need an effective way to learn them. What has worked for you? Thanks!

I guess a lot of it depends on what instrument you play... Trumpet was my first instrument and every time I pick it up my warm up is my scales. I start from my lowest scale (G) and go as high as I can. This helps me with the fingerings. But the fingerings alone just don't do enough... so I would suggest just memorizing the key signatures for each scale and imagining it on paper in your head... if that helps (e.g. D major scale would be C and F sharp). A lot of it comes with practice, but no matter how boring/hard the scales may be, just think about the prize and don't give up!

God Bless :)
