Piano Technique: Picking up Arpeggio Speed with blocked and unblocked note groupings

I uploaded two videos today that focus on practicing strategies for playing brisk paced arpeggio (G Major). The first is an after hours tutorial that I recorded by FACETIME SCREEN RECORD. The screen, framed by Millennium technology art nouveau, features my Arius YDP 141 digital piano as its centerpiece.

The second video sample is a lesson-in-progress over SKYPE with the same advancing speed theme as the first.

Basic Spotlight:
ROLL in motion
Block tunnels through which thumb passes
Play note groupings in arpeggio segments
and Block notes in segments.
Make sure thumb advances quickly and smoothly through “tunnel” fingers.
Round out top of arpeggio (at the turnaround) with hand/finger rotation.
