Memorizing music is a topic I’ve always struggled with, both as a performer and as a teacher.
As a student through elementary school and high school, I was never pushed to memorize a piece linux betriebssystem deutsch kostenlos vollversion. I’m sure it happened at some point, but it was never a priority. I base this statement on the fact that if it were a priority, I would be much better at it now sd kartenleser windows 10 downloaden.
I am not a good memorizer. Even in college, it was never a priority, or a requirement for performance. Yes, some pieces I memorized, and played without music, but as Ruth once said, “Why wouldn’t you want every possible aid to help you play that piece correctly?” This might not be a word for word quote, but she had a point herunterladen.
If you’re performing something, and it’s a piece that jumps wildly all over the keyboard, or maybe has a few ridiculous page turns, yes, you probably have to memorize it herunterladen. But easier pieces? Why bother? Give yourself every last chance to get it correct.
The other reason why I tend to shy away from memorization, is because it just fosters incorrectness in students herunterladen. Either they memorize it incorrectly (and there is nothing worse than a memorized mistake – honestly, it is probably one of the most frustrating things to work through), or memorizing it leads to not actually reading the notes, which leads to forgetting note names and note vales outlook downloaden windows 10 gratis nederlands. Once it’s forgotten, when you try to read the music again, any music for that matter, the student is lost.
It almost breaks my heart to watch a student play something flawlessly without the music, only to completely crumble when the music gets put in front of them again herunterladen.
So why put students through that? Make them work harder, make them play it with the music every time, but in the long run, I think it’s worth it, and it makes your student a better musician ps3 games download usb.
Maybe that’s what Miss Carol was thinking when I never memorized a piece, all those years ago.
