For oboe/flute and no doubt other instruments some arpeggios are done as a 12th - sticking to C as the example that would be

C-E-G-C'-E'-G'-G'-E'-C'-G-E-C-C

You play the middle and end notes twice to make the rhythm work. smile.gif

 

Actually, although this may be the case with oboe, it isn't with flute. I have only ever played 12th scales without the repeated notes, and this is how they are written in the flute scales book.

I've always played them and taught them with the repeated notes on flute so that the rhythm matches the two octave examples, as flobiano says. :)

Ah - so I assume both ways are equally acceptable then. My flute teacher never demonstrated them with repeated notes, so I was happily ignorant! Thanks for putting me right.smile.png

I've just checked the online flute syllabus, and the version they give in there is the one with repeated notes, so that must be the official line. However, I have inherited pupils who have been taught the other way and not penalised for playing them like that in an exam (as far as I could tell).
