Practising with YouTube

When using a YouTube video as a practice resource it is useful to know how to adjust the speed of the video. You might want to start slower and and then increase the speed as you become more familiar with the notes and the words.

Here is a short tutorial that may come in handy if you don't yet know how to adjust the speed.

1. Start the YouTube video and pause it (you can change the speed while it plays but to begin with you might want to pause it first).

2. Click on Settings, that is the wee cog in the right-hand bottom corner of the video player. If you hover over the cog you'll see the word "Settings" appear.

3. Once you have clicked on Settings, select Playback speed

4. From the speed options choose the speed you would like to try. Three-quarter speed = 0.75x the normal speed. If you go too low the sound gets distorted. Play around with the options until you find what works for you.

 5. If you don't like any of those options, click the Custom link and use the slider to select your optimal practice speed.
