I hate this response. I usually say if they can’t play it slowly, they’re faking it when they play it fast. Fingers aren’t moving evenly, articulation often isn’t correct, and rhythms are approximated. Playing it slowly might be harder on occasion, but it will make playing “correct-er” in the long run, both on a particular phrase/song and in general.
