We all know that practicing passages can be challenging. In our second video (see above) of this series, Mimi explores rhythms and how they can help you master passages more easily. Mimi also discusses how you can use rhythms to your advantage for developing a more deliberate and even tempo.
The key takeaway is that rhythmic practice helps build your muscle memory and coordination. Practicing rhythms also makes you more aware of time signatures, which can help with memorizing challenging compositions.
