Weights and Measures: Scale Melodies for Recorder (and other instruments)

Twenty-four one-page scale studies in all of the major and minor keys, in versions for soprano recorder (c fingerings) and alto recorder (f fingerings). They can also be played on just about any melody instrument.

I also made transcriptions of the recorder version for viola and for bass clef instruments of every stripe (the lowest pitch is F).

You can listen to performances of some of these here.

The music for this set of scale pieces is available on this page of the IMSLP.

May 2021 UPDATE: I have set these pieces as duets (recorder and violin)! You can find them through the IMSLP link, or through this post.


Any and all of the versions work perfectly well on the viola d'amore!
