 Scales: recommended speed
Author: Fishamble

Is there an accepted or recommended speed that one should be able to play scales to be equipped for most playing situations, say at an amateur level?

I can play scales comfortably up to 120 bpm. I tried a piece marked adagio (I took this to be 70 bpm), but got stung with a run of demi-semi-quavers. I'd have to practice at 140 to facilitate these in my basic technique, which made me wonder. I can tackle 140 bpm scales, but should I stop there; or where should I be aiming?
