If you are signed up for Annual Membership then you get access to everything on the site, this includes the Scale Library. Alternately, you can just buy lifetime access to the Scale Library on it's own, click here.

>>> Log in to the site
>>> Click on "My Lessons" in the menu
>>> select the Scale Library tab
>>> Scroll down to the bottom section, called “Technical Tips”:
>>> Scroll down until you see “Get Better At Playing Over The Break”, then click on that title and you'll see this:
In the video I work through exactly how to get better at this area of difficulty. I demonstrate the method that I have used in my own practice for years; I also use this same method in my teaching practice regularly.
Working through this video is just one of many valuable learning aids in the Scale Library.
