Thomas Viloteau teaches you how to play Lagrima by Francisco Tárrega in 7 days!

In this extended lesson, Viloteau demonstrates his process for learning a new piece of music and breaks his approach up into seven distinct days of practice, by the end of which you will be able to play Lagrima from memory. The primary steps include 1) analyzing the score, 2) choosing fingerings, 3) practicing trouble spots, 4) playing sections perfectly, and 5) playing the entire piece perfectly. This procedure emphasizes Viloteau’s belief in efficiency when it comes to practicing because as he so eloquently puts it, “Life’s too short!”
