How To Practice Super-Fast Scales

This is a tutorial created for one of my ArtistWorks students who requested special help to improve the speed of his scales in Mozart's Piano Sonata in C major, K. 545. We look at 3 types of super fast scales in this piece - straight up and down, up with a sudden shift in the middle, then a roller coaster ride going up, down, up, down.

The key thing is to remember 2 types of fingers: "anchors" and "turnarounds". With those 2 fingering types in place, you can then apply different rhythm exercises and use the metronome to gradually increase speed. Give this a try and have fun!
