Clusters (Practice Tip)
I've talked before about varying rhythms for rapid passagework ( https://www.youtube.com/shorts/U86hYXuEV7k ); this can help with reinforcing the strength and volume needed in each finger. However, if you're struggling to make a passage flow, it might be best to chunk or cluster notes together. This can be beneficial, because it helps you identify the rudimentary muscle memory of the passage; especially when you need to rotate over your thumb. Clusters can also be useful for scales and other scale-like passages.
