Use the free version of Quicktime 7 to play the .mp3 files on your computer.

By using the A/V controls you can adjust the tempo without changing the pitch. Slow down the selection that you’re practicing.     Click here for a demo movie.

You can also play along using headphones half on. That is, one ear covered, and the other open to your instrument.

Practice for Accuracy at Slower Speeds

Research studies show that accuracy at a slower speed will lead to better technique at faster speeds with consistent and focused practice.

Please listen to the sound clips.
