Problems getting started: I’m totally green

I’ve tried my new theremini on three separate occasions. Regarding set up, I don’t know which scale to choose. I don’t know which high note and low note to choose, and which root to choose. So far I haven’t gotten the volume to get louder and softer—it’s closer to simply on-off. The first time I set up, I could “find” the notes in the c-major scale, for example, but the next two occasions I couldn’t even get that far. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, though I’m sure it’s a long list. I play a little piano, and I can read music. But I really don’t understand enough about all the settings to know which combination of choices makes sense for a beginner. Does anyone have any suggestions for me, whether what choices to try or what resources to check? Thanks for any input!
