Scales And Arpeggios For Piano With Preparatory Exercises It has long been recognised that although practicing scales and arpeggios can be boring, it can also be helpful in becoming a good musican. Someone has even writen a song about it which I hope might encourage you !:

Scales and Arpeggios Song
(Lyrics transcribed from Disney's Aristocats Soundtrack)

Ev'ry truly cultured music student knows.
You must learn your scales and your arpeggios.
Bring the music, ringing from your chest and not your nose.
While you sing your scales and your arpeggios.

If you're faithful to your daily practicing.
You will find your progress is encouraging.
Do Mi Sol Mi, Do Mi Sol Mi, Fa La so it goes.
When you do your scales and your arpeggios.

Mi mi fa sol sol fa mi re do do re mi mi re re.
Mi mi fa sol sol fa mi re do do re mi re do do.

Though at first it seems as tho' it doen't show.
Like a tree ability will bloom and grow.
If you're smart, you'll learn by heart what ev'ry artist knows:
You must sing your scales and your arpeggios.

If you're smart, you'll learn by heart what ev'ry artist knows:
You must sing your scales and your arpeggios.
