In this lesson, Vladimir Gorbach breaks down his approach to developing fast scales. When practicing scales, Gorbach aims to maintain control of the fingers at all times and therefore begins his study at an initially slow tempo.
After walking through a brief warm up exercise and discussing rest and free stroke differences, Gorbach guides you step-by-step through the different levels of speeding up your scales. Play along and see what BPM you can reach with one, two, three, and four notes per beat. To end, Gorbach recommends practicing scales every two days, so be sure to return to this lesson and continue your development!
