That might not be a good idea. Music videos use lots of cuts but this does not mean that quick cuts are good for every situation or project. Instructional video would seem to be a genre where an editing style with slower cuts would be desirable. When I worked with Total Training on a training series they tended to prefer consistency and slow cuts to give the viewer a stable experience. I believe that the most important thing to keep in mind about creating an instructional video is that the presentation of the content was be concise, clear and easy to follow.
