  • This time I prepared an etude to include into your practice routine. This also can be used as a warming-up exercise. Basically, what we are looking is to develop our tightness.


    What is "tightness"? Well, perfect playing is often referred to as "tightness". It doesn’t matter if you are playing 2 notes per second or 100 notes, the important thing is to play them perfectly.
    So, for me, to play perfect, is to play every note in its place.
    This exercise will help you to develop your skills going from quarter notes to sixteenth notes.

    I hope you like this lesson!
