I heard an interesting piece of advice regarding learning pieces of music.

We all know about learning a piece in chunks one bar at a time, but I heard about learning it backwards, so you learn the last bar and then the 2nd to last and build the piece of music that way so your fingers already know what is coming next.

This is also used when learning a foreign language and learning the pronunciation of words where you start with the last sound and then the next until you have the whole word.

One thing I've found when learning from start to finish is that after working on a bar or two the last note seems very final as I've been practising it for some time that it's difficult to flow into the next note of the next bar.

Learning backwards should help with that as you will flow into a line that your fingers already know how to play.

If you don't like that and prefer going from start to finish you could always learn a bar or two BUT include the first note of the next chunk of music so your fingers can anticipate the next passage, this should also help avoid the problem with flowing.
