How to Play Faster

In the following clip, I demonstrate some simple tricks that you can incorporate into your practice if you are working on playing more quickly.

  1. Play in a long-short rhythm (dotted quarter note + eighth note)
  2. Play in a short-long rhythm (eighth note + dotted quarter note)
  3. Play in groups of 3 or 4 notes at a time

These tricks are effective because they allow you to divide the notes into quick notes and slow notes. You will gain practice playing notes quickly in a way that is less overwhelming than playing as written at a faster tempo.
