    slow and precise until it's automatic, then increase speed.
    add a variety of articulations.
    wise fingering patterns.
    all keys/ranges.

    Here is what I do. Slow and precise, make sure my hand is always in the right position, make sure I'm using my arm, make sure my hands are relaxed, make sure I'm not lifting my fingers to high. That is what my scales and arpeggio practice is like. Sooner or later, I'll be able to go so fast, it'll be a blur. Hey, I can do the key of c pretty fast...
