還不知道如何選擇一支適合自己的色士風簧片?趕快收藏起來去尋找能夠提升你演奏狀態與水平的利器!

                                                                                  最近有許多學生朋友都在諮詢色士風簧片的相關問題,有很多同學都對簧片十分好奇,這一支小小的蘆葦片是怎麼樣影響到我們色士風的演奏呢?它又有什麼不同的類別呢?如何選擇適合自己的簧片呢?我們又應該怎樣將簧片的作用發揮到最大化呢?     色士風簧片的工作原理:       在選擇適合自己的色士風簧片前我們需要了解它的工作原理,只有了解到它最本質的工作原理之後我們才能夠真正的了解到我們究竟適合哪一種簧片。首先我們要知道,色士風的簧片在一般情況下是由蘆葦為材料進行製作,當然這也是最傳統的簧片材料。             一隻好的色士風簧片能夠從根本上幫助到我們的演奏,色士風之所以能夠發出聲音,都是因為簧片的震動。大家也可以在現在進行嘗試:當我們將簧片從色士風吹嘴上取下來,您還能將色士風吹響嗎?答案肯定是不可以的。色士風的簧片就像是人的聲帶一樣,是通過簧片的震動產生聲波從而使樂器發出聲音,因此簧片的狀態對於色士風演奏者是十分重要的。                                                                                                     通常簧片的硬度指數能夠決定色士風的基本音色,它的硬度指數一般也會用數字來進行標記。色士風簧片上標注的數字越小,則代表簧片越薄,硬度越低,因此在演奏的時候所需要的力量越小也會比較容易發出聲音,因此這類簧片會適合初學者或者是氣息力量較弱的學生。但是,正是由於這類簧片所需要的氣息較少,這也就會導致音色變薄,所演奏出來的聲音會缺乏厚度與爆發力,在演奏高音的時候比較容易出現失誤。而色士風上面所標記的數字越大則代表簧片越厚,硬度也越高,因此這類簧片適合控制力較好且力量比較充足的同學來適應,那這類簧片的音色也會更厚更有力度一些。       如果您還是不知道如何選擇適合自己的簧片,您可以買幾片不同型號的簧片進行嘗試。如果您在進行嘗試後仍然無法決定哪種簧片更適合自己,那您需要考慮以下問題:哪隻簧片太薄根本無法使用?哪隻簧片太厚根本無法使用?哪隻簧片稍微厚了一點點,但是我基本可以控制它?如果出現了以上的問題,您可以直接不去考慮使用過薄或過厚的簧片。但是,當您找到一個稍微厚了一點點的型號,那您可以嘗試與這個簧片進行磨合,在磨合一段時間之後您會開始適應這種簧片的厚度。當然,如果您仍然感覺無法適應,您可以選擇適用簧片打磨器來對簧片進行修正。注意:塑膠材質的簧片是無法進行修正的。     色士風簧片的相關品牌:       市面上有許多色士風簧片的品牌,價格也是有很大的差異。價格高一些的色士風簧片品牌:vandoren,dadario,rico,legere等等,這些品牌的簧片質量相對來說會好一些,但是對於初學者或者非專業人士來說頻繁的更換使用可能是一種浪費,因為這些簧片的最大價值還沒發揮出來的時候這個簧片可能已經丟棄或是破損了。在這時候,大家就可以去選擇價格較低的簧片品牌進行使用:xinzhong,飛雁等等。           如何挑選色士風簧片:       我們平時購買的簧片材質一般來說都是蘆葦製成的,因為是天然材料製成的,因此每一隻簧片都會有它獨特的地方,世界上也不會有兩隻一模一樣的簧片。在挑選簧片時,我們要選擇打磨較為充分的簧片,這種打磨充分的簧片上的紋理一般來說會延續到簧片的最頂端。其次,我們在選擇簧片的時候要選擇那些稍微厚一點點的,因為簧片在吹過幾次後會變的薄一些,但是切忌選擇過厚的簧片。       色士風除了有經典的蘆葦材質簧片還有塑膠材質的簧片,這類簧片一般來說比蘆葦材質的更為耐用,但是並不代表這類簧片不用小心保存,因為它也是有使用壽命的。塑膠材質的簧片擁有更穩定的音色與使用體驗,但是塑膠材質簧片的音色卻不能夠取代傳統的蘆葦材質簧片。                                            有許多同學也會好奇,究竟色士風的簧片會區分成爵士流派與古典流派嗎?它們之間有差距嗎?其實,古典與爵士簧片之間還是有細微的差距的,但是它們之間的差距不大,因此許多演奏者也不會特地區分這兩類簧片。因為古典簧片的切割多為弧面,而爵士簧片切割的比較直,但是總體來說這兩個流派之間的音色差距主要還是依靠演奏者來控制,當然如果您對音樂的追求比較高那選擇購買爵士專用的簧片效果更佳。

Still don’t know how to choose your saxophone reed? Save this quickly to find a sharp weapon that can improve your performance state and level!

                                                                                     Recently, many students are asking about the reed of saxophone and are very curious. How does this small reed affect our performance? What are its different categories? How to choose the right reed? How should we maximize the role of reed?     Working principle of saxophone reed:      We need to know its working principle before selecting the right kind of reed. Only after we know its essential working principle can we really know which kind of reed we are suitable for. First of all, we should know that the reed of saxophone is generally made of cane plant, which is also the most traditional reed material.            A good reed of saxophone can fundamentally help our performance. The reason why saxophone can make sound is the vibration of the reed. You can also try it now: when we take the reed off the mouth of saxophone, can you still blow it? The answer will be no. The reed of saxophone is like a human vocal cord. It generates sound waves through the vibration of the reed to make the instrument sound. Therefore, the state of the reed is very important for saxophone players.                                                                                            Generally, the hardness index of reed can determine the basic timbre of saxophone, which is usually marked with numbers. The smaller the number marked on the reed of saxophone, the thinner the reed and the lower the hardness. Therefore, the smaller the force required when playing, the easier it is to make sound. Therefore, this kind of reed will be suitable for beginners or students with weak breath strength. However, it is precisely because this kind of reed requires less breath, which will lead to the thinning of timbre, the lack of thickness and explosive force of the sound played, and it is easy to make mistakes when playing high notes. The larger the number marked on saxophone, the thicker the reed and the higher the hardness. Therefore, this kind of reed is suitable for students with good control and sufficient strength to adapt, and the tone of this kind of reed will also be thicker and stronger.      If you still don't know how to choose the appropriate reed, you can buy several different types of reed to try. If you still cannot decide which reed is more suitable for you after trying, you need to consider the following questions: Which reed is too thin to use at all? Which reed is too thick to use? Which reed is a little thicker, but I can basically control it? If the above problems occur, you can directly ignore the use of too thin or too thick reed. However, when you find a slightly thicker model, you can try to run in with this reed. After running in for a period of time, you will begin to adapt to the thickness of this reed. Of course, if you still feel unable to adapt, you can choose the appropriate reed grinder to correct the reed. Note: The plastic reed cannot be modified.     Relevant brands of saxophone reed:      There are many brands of saxophone reed on the market, and the price is also very different. The more expensive saxophone reed brands: vandoren, dadario, rico, legere, etc.The quality of these brands' reed is relatively better, but for beginners or non-professionals, frequent replacement and use may be a waste, because the reed may have been discarded or damaged before the maximum value of these reed has been played. At this time, you can choose the reed brand with lower price to use: xinzhong, etc.                How to select the reed:      The reeds we usually buy are generally made of reeds. Because they are made of natural materials, each reed will have its own unique features, and there will not be two identical reeds in the world. When selecting the reed, we should select the reed that has been fully polished. Generally, the texture on the fully polished reed will continue to the top of the reed. Secondly, we should choose the slightly thicker reed when selecting it, because the reed will become thinner after several blows, but we should not choose the thicker reed.                                              In addition to the classical cane planted reed, there also is plastic reed. Generally speaking, this kind of reed is more durable than cane plant reed, but it does not mean that this kind of reed should not be stored carefully, because it also has a service life. The plastic reed has a more stable timbre and use experience, but the timbre of the plastic reed cannot replace the traditional cane plant reed.      Many students will also wonder whether the reed of saxophone can be divided into jazz genre and classical genre? Is there a gap between them? In fact, there is still a slight gap between classical and jazz reeds, but the gap between them is not large, so many performers will not distinguish between these two types of reeds. Because the cutting of classical reed is mostly curved, while the cutting of jazz reed is relatively straight, but in general, the timbre gap between the two genres is mainly controlled by the performer. Of course, if you have a high pursuit of music, it is better to buy jazz reed.

Saxophone | The Jazz Time of Saxophone? Let's have a jazz tour together!

       In the last blog, Six Months Rebellion Music has introduced the classical and jazz genres of saxophone to you. Have you known anything about these two genres? Have you chosen your favorite genre? If you are passionate about the jazz style, you must read this blog carefully today! Are you ready to enter the jazz time of saxophone? Let's dive into the jazz world and experience the charm of jazz style!     Jazz:      Jazz originated in the United States from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, and was born in the port city of New Orleans in the south of the United States. Its musical characteristics can be traced back to blues and ragtime. It can also be said that jazz is a "hybrid product" of the combination of white culture and African culture. The difference between jazz and other music types is that it is entirely based on improvisation and has the characteristics of swing. At the same time, this kind of music can reflect the strength and feelings of the early African-American people, and we can reflect the most original American style from jazz music.   You can click the video below to feel the style of jazz music:   The Very Best of JAZZ – Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Norah John, Diana Krall, Ella Fitzgerald     Jazz saxophone style:      In the early jazz bands, clarinet and other instruments were generally used, and no one had ever used the chromatic wind to play jazz, because the chromatic wind was an instrument that was used to be placed in the military band when it was invented. However, when the performer Sidney Bechet used this instrument to play jazz, more people also saw the charm of jazz style. It is precisely because of its metallic timbre and changeable music style that saxophone has attracted more and more attention from the jazz music industry. Although saxophone was not born for jazz at the beginning of its invention, its timbre was originally very close to human voice, so the timbre of saxophone is very similar to human singing or narration, which is also very consistent with the improvisation style of jazz and can play the most unique musical charm of saxophone. The jazz industry also agrees that saxophone has promoted the development of jazz to a certain extent.        In modern jazz music industry, jazz style has become the main melody instrument in the band, and many people in the jazz industry believe that jazz and jazz style have become an inseparable combination.      You can click the video below to enjoy the music charm of jazz style: Careless Whisper – Vintage 1930's Jazz Wham! Cover feat. Robyn Adele Anderson & Dave Koz      In the present age, saxophone has become the mainstream instrument in jazz. Even though saxophone is a relatively young instrument, it still makes people immersed in the charm of saxophone. Even the students who study the classical style of jazz will try to play jazz and experience the different charm of jazz in their daily music learning. If you want to experience the different charm of music and feel the difference in the performance style of jazz, you can try the metal saxophone mouthpiece. Because in our daily study, we usually use bakelite style mouthpiece, but if you want to quickly experience the changes in your performance and timbre, you can use metal style mouthpiece to quickly experience. This kind of metal mouthpiece has a brighter, clearer, more transparent and stronger metal feeling. Even if you haven't mastered saxophone now, you can immediately experience the change of music style and timbre after changing this mouthpiece.     saxophone jazz masters and music:      Since the development of jazz, there have been many famous jazz musicians. Today, Six Months Rebellion Music will introduce several jazz jazz musicians of different periods/times and their representative works, hoping to bring more music information and learning goals to you who like jazz!   Famous jazz jazz player:   Parker Charlie                                  John Coltrane                                                            Dave Koz                                  Benny Golson                                                      Eric Marienthal                                                            Wonderful jazz music:   The Complete “Birth of Bebop” The Charlie Parker Story ,Vo1.1  Charlie Parker &Stars of Modern Jazz at Carnegie Hall Jazz at Massey Hall You are too beautiful My one and only one In a sentimental mood Dedicated to you I’ll be there I believe The shadow of your smile Together again Autumn leaves I didn’t know what time it was Moonlight in Vermont Minor vamp Here in my heart Turn out the light Beautiful liar Get there Imagine that

色士風|色士風的爵士時代?大家一起來一趟爵士之旅吧!

      在上一期的blog當中Six Months Rebellion Music已經為大家介紹過色士風的古典流派與爵士流派,大家有沒有對這兩個流派有所了解呢?您是否已經選擇好自己喜歡的流派了呢?如果您對爵士色士風流派充滿熱情,那您今天一定要仔細閱讀這篇blog!準備好進入色士風的爵士時代了嗎?大家一起進入爵士世界體會爵士色士風流派的魅力吧!     爵士音樂:     爵士樂起源於19世紀末至20世紀初期的美國,並誕生於美國南部的港口城市新奧爾良,並且它的音樂特點可以追溯到布魯斯音樂與拉格泰姆,也可以說爵士樂是白人文化與非洲文化相結合的“混血產物”。爵士樂與其它音樂類型的不同之處是完全以即興演奏技巧為主且具有搖擺的特點。同時,這種音樂能夠體現出早期非洲裔美洲人的力量與感情,大家能夠從爵士音樂當中體現出最原汁原味的美洲風情。     您可以點擊下方的視頻來感受爵士音樂的風采:   The Very Best of JAZZ – Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Norah John, Diana Krall, Ella Fitzgerald   爵士色士風流派:       在早期的爵士樂隊當中一般會使用單簧管等樂器,並沒有人使用使用過色士風來演奏爵士樂,因為色士風這種樂器在發明之出是一種被用來放置在軍樂隊裡的樂器。但是,當演奏家西德尼·貝切特使用這用這種樂器來演奏爵士樂之後,也使更多的人看到了色士風的魅力。正是由於色士風具有金屬風格的音色與多變的音樂風格,色士風越來越受到了爵士音樂界的高度關注。雖然色士風在發明之初並不是為了爵士樂而誕生的,但色士風的音色本來就很接近人的聲音,因此色士風的音色就很像是人在唱歌或敘事,這也與爵士樂的即興演奏風格非常契合且能夠發揮色士風最獨特的音樂魅力,爵士樂界也一致認為色士風在一定得程度上推動了爵士樂的發展。          在現代的爵士樂當中,色士風已經成為了樂隊當中的主要旋律樂器,並且有很多爵士樂界的人士認為爵士與色士風已經成為了不可分割的組合。       您可以點擊下方的視頻來感受爵士色士風流派的音樂魅力:   Careless Whisper – Vintage 1930's Jazz Wham! Cover feat. Robyn Adele Anderson & Dave Koz           在當代,色士風在爵士樂當中已經成為了主流樂器,即使色士風是一件比較年輕的樂器,卻依然讓大家沈浸在色士風的魅力當中無法自拔。即使是學習古典色士風流派的學生,在學習音樂的日常中也會嘗試去演奏爵士樂體驗色士風不同的魅力,如果您也想體會不同的音樂魅力感受色士風演奏風格的差異,可以嘗試一下金屬色士風吹嘴。因為我們在日常學習當中一般來說都會使用膠木色士風吹嘴,但是如果您想快速體會自己演奏的變化與音色的變化,那您就可以使用金屬色士風吹嘴來進行快速體驗。這類金屬吹嘴擁有更明亮、清脆、通透且具有強力的金屬感,即便您現在對色士風的掌握度不是很高,但是在更換過這個吹嘴之後您可以馬上體會到音樂風格與音色的改變。     色士風爵士名家與樂曲:  爵士樂自發展以來出現過很多色士風演奏名家,今天Six Months Rebellion  Music將會為大家介紹幾個不同時期/時代的爵士色士風演奏家以及他們的代表作,希望能夠給喜歡爵士樂的您帶來更多的音樂資訊與學習的目標!      著名爵士色士風演奏家:   Parker Charlie                                    John Coltrane                                                 Dave Koz                                 Benny Golson                                                  Eric Marienthal                                                        精彩爵士色士風樂曲:     The Complete “Birth of Bebop” The Charlie Parker Story ,Vo1.1  Charlie Parker &Stars of Modern Jazz at Carnegie Hall Jazz at Massey Hall You are too beautiful My one and only one In a sentimental mood Dedicated to you I’ll be there I believe The shadow of your smile Together again Autumn leaves I didn’t know what time it was Moonlight in Vermont Minor vamp Here in my heart Turn out the light Beautiful liar Get there Imagine that

Saxophone|Classic saxophone genre? Jazz genre? How should we choose the playing direction of saxophone?

     We can hear the music played by saxophone on many occasions in our daily life. For example, we can hear the sound of saxophone more frequently on special festivals such as New Year and Christmas. I believe that many students have also been interested in this instrument after listening to the timbre of saxophone, and even have the idea of learning to play it. However, both younger and adult students may encounter these problems when they choose to learn this instrument at the beginning: Do I want to learn the classic saxophone genre or the jazz saxophone genre? What is the difference between the classical and jazz genres? How can I choose?     The difference between the classical and jazz genres:      When we begin to learn saxophone, many teachers will let students begin to learn relevant basic skills. When students' ability is stable, we need to make a choice of music genre. However, there are still many students who do not understand the difference between the two genres.                                                                               The classical saxophone genrerequires us to perform according to the music score and express all the contents marked by the composer, so the classical saxophone genre performer is more like a transmitter to express the composer's thoughts and feelings. The Jazz genre needs the musicians to have good knowledge of music theory and the ability to improvise, because the musicians of the Jazz genre only get some chords on the music score, and there is no specific music score. Unlike classical musicians, jazz musicians need to compose specific music scores themselves, and even many jazz musicians will play different versions of the same music.     Now let's feel these two music genres first. You can also enjoy these two types of music to determine your preferences:   Classical genre: Bach: Harpsichord Concerto No.1 in D Minor BWV 1052 (Jean Rondeau)   Jazz genre: The Very Best of JAZZ – Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Norah John, Diana Krall, Ella Fitzgerald      You should feel the preciseness of the classical genre and the freedom of the jazz genre after enjoying these two genres of music. However, we still need to pay attention to some problems when choosing the performance genre. The jazz genre of both classical and jazz genres needs a good foundation, especially many students misunderstand the jazz genre: Jazz is so free, as long as you can play the instrument, then you can play it! Jazz genre will never need long practice like classical genre! Jazz music is more interesting than classical music!      For the saxophone performers of the classical music genre, if the score is difficult, they can only practice more, because the classical music genre requires the performer to present the composer's creation perfectly. For jazz performers, although there is no need to practice indiscriminately according to the music score, when the band plays a piece of music with a speed of 300 or even 400, it is impossible without certain basic skills. Of course, the above is only the difference in music style between the two genres. In fact, the two genres can also be reflected in the performance and timbre of musical instruments.        Of course, you can also see a lot of accessories for classical or jazz style on the market. Many players who want to try different music styles will think that changing different accessories can change their performance style. However, different styles and genres of music are often defined by the tone of the music. The timbre of the classical style of color is more concentrated, and the overall timbre is very round and textured. The music of the jazz genre is more relaxed, the timbre is more softand metallic, and the requirements of the jazz genre for the music theory knowledge, improvisation ability and skills such as glissando and altissimo are generally higher.   Please feel the style difference between classical genre and jazz genre again:     Classical genre: Claude Debussy – Rhapsodie, L 98 for alto saxophone and piano   Jazz genre: Motown Jazz Smooth Jazz Music & Jazz Instrumental Music for Relaxing and Study Soft Jazz   Young students:   For young students, who do not know learning direction or cannot make a choice, and at the same time, think that you should go to the saxophone ability level test with their parents, such as Abrsm, they should choose to learn from the classical saxophone music. Because so far, most of the tests of the ability level of saxophone are mainly based on classical music.   Adult students:   If you are an adult, or you do not need any requirement for the ability level test of saxophone, you can choose according to your preferences. However, if you choose to study jazz style, you must strengthen the study of music theory.

色士風|古典色士風流派?爵士色士風流派?究竟應該怎樣來選擇色士風的演奏方向?

                我們在日常的生活當中會在許多的場合當中聽到色士風所演奏的樂曲,例如:在新年、聖誕節等特定的節日時我們則可以更頻繁的聽到色士風的聲音。相信很多同學也是在聽過色士風的音色之後對這件樂器產生了極大的興趣,甚至產生了想要學習演奏這件樂器的念頭。但是,不論是年齡較小的學生還是成年學生在剛開始選擇學習這件樂器時可能都會遇到這些問題:我是要學習古典色士風流派還是選擇爵士色士風流派?老師說的古典色士風流派與爵士色士風流派究竟有什麼不同之處?我又該如何進行選擇呢?                                                                古典色士風流派與爵士色士風流派的區別:      當我們開始學習色士風的時候,有很多老師會先讓學生開始學習相關的基本功,當學生的能力較穩定的時候,我們則需要做出音樂流派的選擇。但是,仍舊有很多的同學不太了解這兩種流派之間的區別。      通俗來講,古典色士風流派需要我們按照樂譜的進行演奏並且將作曲家所標註的所有內容都表達出來,因此古典流派的色士風演奏者更像是一個傳遞者來表達作曲家的思想與情感。而爵士樂派則需要樂手有著良好的樂理知識與即興演奏的能力,因為爵士樂派的演奏者所拿到的樂譜上面只是一些和弦而已,沒有具體的樂譜。與古典樂派的樂手不同的是,爵士樂派的演奏者則需要自己將具體的樂譜譜寫出來,甚至很多爵士樂手演奏同一首音樂時都會演奏出不同的版本。     下面就請大家先來感受一下這兩種音樂風格,大家也可以多多欣賞這兩種類型的音樂來確定自己的喜好哦:   古典流派: Bach: Harpsichord Concerto No.1 in D Minor BWV 1052 (Jean Rondeau)   爵士流派: The Very Best of JAZZ – Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Norah John, Diana Krall, Ella Fitzgerald       大家在通過這兩種風格的色士風樂曲後應該可以感受到古典流派的嚴謹,爵士風格的自由了吧。但是,我們在選擇演奏風格的時候仍然要注意一些問題。不論是古典樂派還是爵士樂派的色士風都需要良好的基礎,尤其是很多同學都對爵士樂派有所誤解:爵士樂那麼自由,只要能吹響樂器就能夠演奏吧!爵士樂派絕對不會像古典樂派那樣需要長時間進行練習!爵士樂派的樂曲比古典樂派更有趣!       對於古典樂派的色士風演奏者來說,如果樂譜難度較大也只能加倍練習,因為古典樂派就是需要演奏者能夠完美的呈現作曲家的創作。而對於爵士樂派的演奏者來說,雖然不用根據樂譜進行毫無差別的練習,但是當樂隊合奏一首速度為300甚至是400的樂曲時,如果沒有一定的基本功也是不可以的。當然,以上只是這兩個樂派之間的音樂風格差異,其實這兩種樂派也能夠體現在樂器的演奏與音色等方面。       當然,您也可以在市面上看到很多古典色士風或爵士色士風專用的配件,有很多想嘗試不同音樂風格的演奏者會認為改變不同的配件就能改變自己的演奏風格。但是,不同風格流派的音樂往往是通過樂曲的音色所界定的。古典色士風流派的音色較為集中,總體的音色都是很圓潤並且有質感的。而演奏爵士流派的音樂時較為放鬆,音色更柔和、綿軟並具有金屬感,並且爵士流派對於色士風演奏者的樂理知識、即興演奏能力與滑音、超高音等技巧的要求普遍要更高一些。   請大家再次感受古典色士風樂派與爵士色士風樂派的風格差異:     古典色士風樂派: Claude Debussy – Rhapsodie, L 98 for alto saxophone and piano   爵士色士風樂派: Motown Jazz Smooth Jazz Music & Jazz Instrumental Music for Relaxing and Study Soft Jazz     青少年學生:      如果您還是一名年齡較小的學生,並且您現在還不知道自己的學習方向或者無法進行選擇。同時,您與您的父母認為您應該去進行色士風能力等級測試,例如:Abrsm,那您應該選擇從古典色士風樂派開始學習。因為目前為止,大部分的色士風能力等級測試都是以古典樂派的音樂為主進行學習與測試。   成人學生:      如果您已經成年,或者學習色士風本身就是因為自身的喜好而對於色士風能力等級測試沒有要求,那您可以根據自己的喜好進行選擇。但是,如果您選擇學習爵士色士風樂派那就一定要加強音樂樂理知識的學習哦。

Saxophone|Analyze the difficulties of the key tracks of Abrsm Saxophone Level 5, and hurry to collect them for advanced practice!

                                 In the level 5 test of Saxophone Abrsm, there is a song with high "appearing rate": Tango till you drop. In Abrsm, many examinees will choose this music to play. Six Months Rebellion Music will put the link to this music below, andyou can search this music to listen to it. After listening to it, you will understand why everyone chooses this music to play.   Tango till You Drop! by Richard Kershaw (ABRSM Grade 5 Saxophone)      This piece of music has a strong style of tango. It is a very meaningful and interesting piece of music for both practice and appreciation. Secondly, the mode of this piece of music is relatively simple. It is easy for many young examinees to master, and the playing time of this piece of music is short, so it will be very friendly to some young girls. So, are you ready to learn this music?   Tango Style:                                                      This piece of music was composed by the composer Richard Kershaw and was selected from the Latin Night. If we want to play this piece of music well, we must first understand tango and Latin style. Generally speaking, tango refers to tango dance, which is a kind of duet dance originated in the Midwest of America and belongs to Latin dance at the earliest stage. This is also the reason why this music was selected from Latin Night. But different from the passionate Latin dance, people's facial expressions are more serious when they perform tango, and their dancing posture is very vigorous, which requires strong eye and body contact between male and female dancers. Therefore, we must pay attention to the sense of strength and rhythm in the performance of the music, and show the passion and boldness of tango dance with the style of saxophone.     Music difficulties:   1. Rhythm type of tango style        Because this piece of music has a strong tango style, there will inevitably be many rhythm types with strong characteristics in the music: syncopated notes, the pattern starts with an eighth note then comes two sixteenth notes, etc. We need to pay attention to playing these rhythm types, we must play more prominently and enhance contrast, only in this way can the style of music be more prominent.      Many students will play syncopated notes very evenly when learning them. However, the syncopated notes in this piece of music should play the first and third notes of the syncopated notes shorter. When playing the second note, they need to play the notes more heavily and longer to highlight the characteristics of the syncopated notes. When playing the pattern starts with an eighth note then comes two sixteenth notes, we need to play the 16 minute notes more flexibly, just like a tango dancer jumping.     2. Triplet      Many students are nervous when they play the triplet, because they are very afraid of playing it like a punctuation note. In this piece of music, when we play the trilogy, it is like a dancer walking and sliding. We need to play the trilogy with a sense of movement and tension. Therefore, when we play the trilogy of this piece of music, we can appropriately increase the playing strength, so that our trilogy has a more boldness, in order to imitate the dance steps and spirit of tango dancers.     3. Tonguing        It is not difficult to find that tonguing appears from time to time in this piece of music. Seeing this, students will think that the teachers will ask you to perform your voice cleanly, quickly and forcefully. Of course, a good tonguing requires the above characteristics. If we carefully observe, we will find that the utterance here is like imitating the dancer's fixed position, and the dancers usually pause at this time. Therefore, when we play the tonguing in this piece of music, we need to play more cleanly, forcefully and elastically. It is forbidden to perform the vocalization rigidly, and it should reflect the beauty of strength and posture of dancers.     4. Accent   Tango dance has a strong style and characteristics, usually this style will also be shown in the music beat and accent. Generally speaking, tango is 2/4 beats or 4/4 beats. But no matter what time the music is, the accent of tango music is on the first and third beats, which is also the unique characteristic beat of tango. If you feel that you have difficulty in mastering the tango style, you might as well try to change the accent in your music, and your music will certainly change a lot.      The following is the tango dance music recommended by Six Months Rebellion Music. You can enhance your understanding of this dance music before playing tango style music, so that you will feel more comfortable playing music of related styles.   A. Piazzolla. Libertango

色士風|Abrsm色士風5級重點曲目難點解析,趕快收藏起來進行精準練習吧!

                                     在色士風Abrsm的5級測試當中,有一首“出鏡率”超高的樂曲:Tango till you drop。在Abrsm的測試當中,很多考生都會選擇這首樂曲進行演奏,Six Months Rebellion Music會把這首樂曲的鏈接放在下方,或者您也可以搜索一下這首樂曲來聽聽看,聽過之後您就會明白為什麼大家都選擇這首樂曲進行演奏了。 Tango till You Drop! by Richard Kershaw (ABRSM Grade 5 Saxophone)       這首樂曲具有強烈的探戈風采,不論是用來練習還是欣賞都是一首很有意義與趣味的樂曲。其次,這首樂曲的調式較為簡單,對於很多較為年幼的考生來說是一首比較容易掌握的樂曲,並且樂曲的演奏時長較短這樣就會對一些年齡較小或者力氣較小的女孩子非常友好。那麼,您準備好一起來學習這首樂曲了嗎?     探戈風格:                                                              這首樂曲是由作曲家Richard Kershaw所創作,選自拉丁之夜。如果想要將這首樂曲演奏好,我們首先就要對探戈與拉丁風格有所了解。探戈一般來說都是指探戈舞,這是一種雙人舞蹈起源於美洲的中西部,最早期也屬於拉丁舞的項目,這也是這首樂曲選自拉丁之夜的原因。但是與熱情奔放的拉丁舞不同的是,人們在表演探戈時的面部表情較為嚴肅,並且舞姿十分的剛勁挺拔,需要男女舞者之間有著強烈的目光與身體接觸。因此,我們在用色士風表現探戈風格時,一定要注意要將樂曲演奏的具有力量感與節奏感,用色士風表現出探戈舞的激情與奔放。     樂曲難點: 1、 探戈風格的節奏類型             因為這首樂曲具有濃烈的探戈風格,因此在樂曲當中不免會出現很多具有強烈特色的節奏型:切分音符,前8後16節奏等等。我們需要注意在演奏這些節奏類型的時候,一定要將節奏演奏的更為突出並增強對比性,只有這樣才能夠使樂曲的風格更為突出。      有很多的同學在學習切分音符時會將其演奏的十分均勻且平均,但是這首樂曲當中的切分音符則要將切分音符的第一個音與第三個音演奏的更短一些,在演奏第二個音符的時候則需要將音符演奏的更重更長一點,突出切分音符的特色。在演奏前8後16節奏型時,我們需要將16分音符演奏的更具有彈性,就好似探戈舞者在跳躍一樣。     2、 三連音        很多同學每當演奏三連音的時候都會緊張,因為十分害怕自己將三連音演奏的像附點音符一樣。在這首樂曲當中,我們在演奏三連音時就好似舞蹈演員正在行進滑步一樣,我們需要將三連音演奏的更具有一種行進感與緊張感。因此,我們在演奏這首樂曲的三連音時可以適當的增加演奏力度,使我們的三連音更具有一種氣魄,以此來模仿探戈舞者的舞步與精神。     3、 吐音          我們不難發現,在這首樂曲當中會時不時出現“吐音”的身影。看到這裡同學們就會想到老師們會要求大家將吐音演奏的乾淨、快速有力量。當然,一個好的吐音是需要具備以上特點的。如果我們善於觀察,我們會發現這裡的吐音都好似在模仿舞者的定點pose一樣,舞者們在這時通常都會做出停頓。因此,我們在演奏這首樂曲內的吐音時,我們需要將吐音演奏的更乾淨、力量且具有彈性。切忌將吐音演奏的硬邦邦,要體現出舞者的力量美、體態美。     4、 重音      探戈舞本來就具有強烈的風格與特色,通常這種風格也會表現在音樂的拍子與重音上。通常來說,探戈為2/4拍或4/4拍。但是不論樂曲為哪個拍號,探戈音樂的重音都在第一與第三拍上,這也是探戈所獨有的特色節拍。如果您感覺自己對探戈風格的掌握有困難,那您不妨嘗試去改變自己音樂當中的重音,那您的音樂一定會發生很大的改變。      以下為Six Months Rebellion Music為大家推薦的探戈舞曲,大家在演奏探戈風格的樂曲前可以先增強對這種舞曲音樂的了解,這樣您在演奏相關風格的樂曲時一定會感到更為得心應手。   A.

「小提琴」練琴到底練多久,聽聽世界著名大師怎麼說「violin」How long does it take to practice "violin"? Listen to what world-renowned masters say

“練琴”是每位琴童和琴童家長們都逃避不掉的話題,相信也有很多家庭都經歷過“不練琴母慈子孝,一練琴雞飛狗跳”的名場面。也會有很多琴童不理解為什麼一定要堅持練琴。今天我們給大家總結了極為世界著名的音樂家每天的練琴時長,想必在看過他們的練琴時間以後,大家就會明白練琴的重要性了。   妮寇拉·本內德蒂: 每天3-7小時 世界著名小提琴家,16歲獲得2004年BBC年度青年音樂家獎,如今一直活躍在國際舞台。 妮寇拉·本內德蒂(NicolaBenedetti)曾經分享過她的學琴經歷,她小時候經常因為練琴而錯過與朋友之間的聚會,但是她並不因此而遺憾。   她補充說,在暑假期間,“我們會在假期的早上練習兩到三個小時,並做一些基礎練習和樂理的練習。”   伊扎克·帕爾曼: 每天3小時 世界著名小提琴家,被稱為20世紀後期最出色的小提琴家之一,4歲時因患小兒麻痺症成為終身殘疾。但他自幼表現出對於音樂的喜愛,因此並未放棄對於音樂的學習,經常與世界著名樂團與音樂家合作,同時還會演奏電影配樂,他演奏的由約翰·威廉姆斯創作的電影辛德勒的名單的配樂,榮獲奧斯卡最佳電影音樂獎。 伊扎克 · 帕爾曼(Itzhak Perlman)在接受采訪時表示,在保證自己的身體狀況的情況下,每天三個小時對他來說“個人而言還不錯”。   馬友友: 一天3-6小時   著名華裔大提琴演奏家,多次獲得格萊美獎。 經常活躍在各個舞台上的馬友友,練琴更是每天必做的事情。馬友友堅信馬爾科姆·格拉德威爾的“一萬小時定律”: 要想成為任何事情的專家,你需要投入10000個小時的練習。   郎朗: 每天2-8小時 郎朗每天的練琴時間,每天至少兩個小時起步,無論多忙,他都會抽出兩個小時來練琴。長則七八個小時不等。 他說,“只要時間不太長,練習起來是很有啟發性的。八個小時可能並不能激勵人心。當然,我小時候就是這麼做的。現在我真的很享受這兩個小時。打開我的心,打開我的激情。也讓我平靜下來。有時候,你真的需要清醒一下頭腦,才能演奏慢節奏的樂曲,並保持安靜。”   莎拉.張:每天8小時 ​韓裔著名小提琴家,世界公認的音樂神童,世界多個著名音樂廳都有過她的演出足跡。而對於這個練習時間,莎拉·張(Sarah Chang)她也有自己的規劃。這八個小時並不是一下子就練下來的。 “如果我有很多曲目要學,我每天練習最多八個小時,”她說。 “但我從來不一次練習超過一個小時,我會先練習一個小時,然後吃點東西,再練習一個小時,看看電視,再練習一個小時,等等。”   葉甫格尼·基辛: 每天4小時 俄羅斯著名鋼琴家,被譽為“20世紀後半葉最驚人的鋼琴天才。 現在是音樂會鋼琴家的葉甫格尼·基辛(Evgeny Igorevich Kissin)六歲時,每天練琴不超過20分鐘。但是隨著他學琴的時間變長,學習的難度增大,他的練琴時間也不斷變長,現在的他,每天的練琴時間是4個小時。     不知道大家有沒有遇到過這種情況:一首曲子學會了以後,過了幾天沒有練習,就算是知道樂譜上面的每一個音是什麼,但是自己的手可能就跟不上了。這是為什麼呢?學琴的孩子們一定聽過這句話:“一天不練自己知道,兩天不練老師知道,三天不練觀眾知道。 ”這是因為,記住樂譜的是你的大腦記憶,而記住指法等技巧的,是肌肉記憶。 我國著名小提琴家呂思清就曾經說過:“練琴是需要保持一定頻率的,這樣才能夠保證手指的靈活度還有演奏狀態。 ” 同時,音樂學習是無止境的,小的時候學的可能更多的是技巧,慢慢地就要去學習表演狀態和去理解樂曲感情了。 練琴跟其他的考試不一樣,臨時抱佛腳是無法達到效果的,而是需要長時間的日積月累。就像是今天為大家介紹的幾位藝術家一樣,如果沒有長時間堅持不懈的練習,他們也不可能取得如今的成就。 或許也會有人說,成為音樂家並不是自己的夢想,但是從決定學琴的那一刻開始,練琴已經成為了生活當中必不可少的事情。小的時候,或許覺得練琴是一件很苦的事情,但是就像是郎朗說的那樣,長大以後,或許曾經的“苦差事”對你來說,就變成了一種享受。 長大後的你,一定會感謝當初努力練琴的自己。 ************************************************************************************** English Version   "Practicing the piano" is a topic that every qin boy and parents of the qin boy can't escape. I believe that there are many families who have experienced the famous scene of "the mother who does not practice the piano is kind and filial, and the chickens fly like dogs when they practice the piano". There will also be many piano boys who don't understand why they must persist in practicing piano. Today we have summarized for you the daily piano practice hours of extremely world-renowned musicians. Presumably, after seeing their piano practice time, everyone will understand the importance of piano practice. Nicola Benedetti: 3-7 hours a day A world-renowned violinist, he won the 2004 BBC Young Musician of the Year Award at the age of 16 and has been active on the international stage. Nicola Benedetti (Nicola Benedetti) once shared her experience of learning the piano. When she was a child, she often missed gatherings with friends because of piano practice, but she did not regret it. the During the summer, she added, "we'd practice for two to three hours in the morning of the holidays, and do some basic exercises and music theory."   Yitzhak Perlman: 3 hours a day The world-renowned violinist, known as one of the best violinists in the late 20th century, suffered from polio and became permanently disabled at the age of 4. But he showed his love for music since he was a child, so he never gave up his study of music. He often cooperates with world-renowned orchestras and musicians, and also plays film soundtracks. He played the movie Sim composed by John Williams. The score for Dele's List, which won the Academy Award for Best Score for a Film. Itzhak Perlman said in an interview that three hours a day is "not bad personally" for him while keeping his fitness in check.   ​ Yo-Yo Ma: 3-6 hours a day   Famous Chinese cellist, has won many Grammy Awards. Yo-Yo Ma, who is often active on various stages, practice piano is a must-do every day. Yo-Yo Ma is a firm believer in Malcolm Gladwell's "10,000-hour rule": To become an expert at anything, you need to put in 10,000 hours of practice.   Lang Lang: 2-8 hours a day Lang Lang's daily piano practice time starts at least two hours a day. No matter how busy he is, he will spare two hours to practice piano. The length varies from seven to eight hours. He said, "As long as it's not too long, it's very motivating to practice. Eight hours probably isn't motivating. Of course, that's what I did when I was a kid. Now I'm really enjoying those two hours. Open me up." Heart, open my passion. Also calms me down. Sometimes you really need to clear your head to play a slow piece and be quiet.” A famous Korean violinist, a world-recognized music prodigy, has performed in many famous concert halls around the world. And for this practice time, Sarah Chang also has her own plan. These eight hours are not practiced all at once. "If I have a lot of pieces to learn, I practice up to eight hours a day," she said. "But I never practice for more than an hour at a time, I'll practice for an hour, then eat something, practice for another hour, watch TV, practice for another hour, etc."     Evgeny Kissin: 4 hours a day Famous Russian pianist, known as "the most amazing piano genius in the second half of the 20th century. Now concert pianist Evgeny Igorevich Kissin" When he was six years old, he practiced the piano for no more than 20 minutes a day. However, as the time for him to learn the piano became longer and the learning became more difficult, his time for practicing the piano continued to increase. Now he practiced the piano for 4 hours a day. I don’t know if you have ever encountered such a situation: After learning a piece of music, after a few days without practice, even if you know what each note on the score is, your hands may not be able to keep up Why? Children who learn piano must have heard this sentence: "If you don't practice for one day, you will know it. If you don't practice for two days, the teacher will know it. If you don't practice for three days, the audience will know it. "This is because it is your brain memory that memorizes music scores, and muscle memory that memorizes fingering and other skills. Lu Siqing, a famous violinist in my country, once said: "Practicing needs to maintain a certain frequency, so that you can Ensure the dexterity of the fingers and the playing state. "   At the same time, music learning is endless. When I was young, I may learn more about skills, and slowly I have to learn the state of performance and understand the emotion of music. Practicing the piano is different from other exams. You can't achieve the effect by cramping your feet temporarily, but it takes a long time to accumulate. Just like the several artists introduced to you today, without long-term and persistent practice, they would not be able to achieve what they are today. Some people may also say that becoming a musician is not their dream, but from the moment they decide to learn piano, practicing piano has become an indispensable thing in life. When you were young, you might feel that practicing the piano is a very hard thing, but as Lang Lang said, when you grow up, maybe the "drudgery" you used to be becomes a kind of enjoyment for you. When you grow up, you will definitely thank yourself for practicing piano hard.

色士風|如何提升學習色士風的積極性?你的孩子會主動進行課後練習嗎?—多角度分析孩子不肯積極練習的原因及相關解決方法(內附精彩的音樂推薦清單!)

                                            相信很多家長朋友讓您的孩子開始學習色士風的時候都是由於孩子喜歡這件樂器,對這件樂器感興趣,亦或者是家長本身對色士風這件樂器有著很多的喜愛,因此才選擇讓自己的孩子來學習這件樂器。但是隨著學習的深入,很多家長都會選擇讓孩子進行等級能力測試,例如:Abrsm。因此,孩子們也都會根據自己所選擇的教材進行大量的練習。      在這個過程當中您是否也曾經聽您的孩子說過:“我不想練習了!我感覺我討厭這個樂器!我不想再去上課了!”。很多家長在聽到孩子這樣講之後的第一反應就是:我的孩子又出現三分鐘熱度了,您下意識就會認為您的孩子是否不適合學習這件樂器?或者您的孩子在學習的過程當中遇到了什麼問題?孩子曾經的興趣去哪裡了?       當家長們碰到以上的問題,千萬不要著急為孩子選擇一個新的樂器來學習也不要急著責備孩子。因為這些問題即使是出名的鋼琴家也會出現:著名的鋼琴家郎朗在幼年時也有曾偷懶出去與小伙伴們玩耍。這是因為孩子的天性則是如此,他們天真、活潑且充滿想像力,因此他們對“重複性”的練習充滿抵觸心理也是很正常的。       甚至,有很多的小朋友認為學習色士風能夠將自己從繁重的課業壓力當中解救出來,能夠在音樂的海洋裡自由的呼吸。如果在這個時候,仍舊讓他們進行大量的練習或者難度較高的練習就會產生抵觸心理。因此,這就更需要家長們進行正確的引導並且幫助孩子重拾學習的樂趣。     1、因材施教      每一位家長都對自己小孩的性格特徵是非常了解的,有些小朋友比較開朗、活潑,有些小朋友則更文靜、敏銳。因此,各位家長需要針對自己孩子的性格作為切入點,仔細觀察。對於性格活潑的孩子,就讓他們在學習的時候活動起來,讓他們把練習當作是遊戲一樣。而對於比較敏感的孩子則需要家長更細心一些,引導孩子來表達自己,讓他們在音樂的海洋當中釋放自己。                                                                                                      2、 良好的氛圍      想要提高孩子的學習興趣,首先家長們也要嘗試去喜歡色士風這件樂器。當您也對這件樂器有所了解的時候,在您孩子練習的時候您與孩子之間自然會有共同話題進行討論。同時,您也可以讓您的孩子作您的“小老師”,讓孩子體會教授他人的成就感,還能讓孩子重溫學習內容。歷史上,很多的音樂家都是受到了家庭的熏陶與支持才走上音樂之路,例如莫札特、貝多芬、巴赫等作曲家都是來自音樂家庭,因此想要孩子對音樂充滿興趣,良好的學習氛圍是很重要的。    您還可以主動培養並提升孩子對於色士風的興趣,在孩子面前表達出對這件樂器音色以及外觀的讚賞,如果可以您還可以主動播放一些名曲來培養孩子的敏銳聽覺。     3、 自信心      在2020年的東京奧運會上,誕生了一位天才級滑雪新星:古愛凌。大家都知道她在滑雪場上有著不俗的表現,也知道她私底下還是一位學霸。在她的一次採訪當中,她曾提到過她的奶奶總是鼓勵她會對著她大喊:愛凌No.1!即使她在比賽中得不到第一名,她的奶奶也會使用別的方式來鼓勵她,這給予了她極大的自信心。她也曾表示不論是在滑雪還是在其它的方面,她奶奶的鼓勵式教育總會讓她感到有人在支持自己,那她放手去做就好。      因此,如果孩子在學習色士風的過程當中出現了疑惑與問題,我們要告訴孩子,他/她是完全有能力將這個問題解決掉。同時,家長們一定要給孩子們愛的鼓勵,不要讓孩子丟失掉學習色士風的自信心。                                                                               4、 學會欣賞      很多學生在學習色士風的過程當中,都會感覺某個曲子好難聽甚至會直接表達出對這個樂曲的厭惡。在這裡,我們可能會好奇:這首曲子真這麼難聽嗎?其實,很多作曲家在創作一些作品的時候除了讓音樂好聽,還會兼顧技巧的練習。尤其是正在準備考級的學生,一定會碰到一些為了兼顧技巧練習而準備的練習曲。同時,每個人對於音樂的喜愛程度也都是不同的,因此這些都是很正常的事。     如果孩子在學習的過程當中遇到了自己不喜歡的樂曲,我們可以先嘗試讓學生去聽,對孩子作一個脫敏訓練,培養學生對樂曲的興趣。同時,還可以讓老師進行樂曲拆解,讓孩子能夠理解學習目標。同時,我們在平時也可以讓孩子多接觸一些不同類型與風格的色士風樂曲,讓孩子學會欣賞樂曲學會去理解作曲家的創作意境。   Six Months Rebellion Music為大家推薦的悅耳音樂: Merry-Go-Round of Life [Saxophone Quartet] (Joe Hisaishi / Yuto Yamada)      除此之外之外仍有許多的色士風音樂作品正在等待各位的聆聽與欣賞,Six Months Rebellion Music為大家整理出來以下的歌單,敬請大家欣賞:   Pop music: 01. 500 Miles 02.
