I'm sixteen, and am working on Mendelssohn and Bach Gminor Fugue. But this is all I am doing pretty much, because all my teacher has me do is repetoire, never scales or etudes. While this certainly makes it more pleasant to play I'm beginning to think that I am really missing out on an important part of the foundation building that would help me move along quicker. Are scales and etudes really all that important? And, do you have any reccomendations on how to work on this shortfall?
