Practicing Slurs like a Boss!

When learning to have good sounding slurs, we are taught about the speed and distance requirements of our left hand fingers and which exercises to do. But there is more to it that can make slurs not only sound better, but also feel better by focusing on other approaches such as placement, tension and release, hand and arm angle, large movements versus small.. and more! Join your host Ashley Lucero as she takes you through both the common and uncommon ways to think about and practice your slurs.


PLEASE NOTE: this event is at a different time than our usual, please be sure to put it in the calendar to help you remember it is at 5pm PT!

    • Barney Hello Ashely thank you for a wonderful video about slurs. First I have a request for you can you share the sheet music of your slurs exercises and what books can I buy to practice slurs.
