SUPER SLOW™ VIDEOS 


This category features an extremely effective type of tutorial, developed and trademarked by Cory in 2014 -- BachScholar's  Super Slow™ Videos. BachScholar's Super Slow™ Videos have become some of Cory's most popular tutorials on YouTube and serious students of piano come back to them time again for inspiration and guidance. If it is true that "a picture is worth a thousand words" then "BachScholar's Super Slow™ Videos are worth ten thousand words." In Super Slow™ Videos, Cory plays piano works at half speed with an overhead camera view, which conveys to the student ALL the nuances of a full-speed performance, which includes notes, rhythms, dynamics, accents and articulation, pedaling, correct hand positions and finger placement, good fingerings, and all other details that contribute to a polished performance. Unfortunately, virtually all other slow-tempo tutorials on YouTube consist of "spoon feeding notes" in a mechanical and unmusical fashion void of any expression, dynamic nuances, or pedaling. Moreover, these "spoon feeding notes" types of tutorials so prevalent on YouTube are usually played at a snail's pace much slower than half speed and/or are highly digitized and robotic midi performances that lack any kind of human expression. BachScholar's Super Slow™ Videos are totally different than and vastly superior to these typical slow-speed tutorials, in that Cory plays them fast enough to convey musical coherence and phrasing yet slow enough to allow pianists to fully digest all the nuances of a full-speed performance (such as the aspects listed above). This optimal speed is "half speed" or 50%, which Cory has down to a science!
