1.. Does learning the piano depend on talent or hard work? We will talk about several factors of learning the piano in this blog.
2, 5 tips to thoroughly learn your professional lessons and multiply your learning efficiency.
The most important factor in learning to play the piano is the talent or the effort. This is the first time I've ever seen this blog.
I believe that many people, especially parents of piano children, have this question: Does learning a musical instrument depend on innate talent or on acquired effort? I have asked myself the same question over and over again on my way to learning, what is natural talent? If you are not as gifted as others, can't you learn? To address this question.
1.The starting point and the end point of learning the piano is love: effort or talent can take us to a certain level, but to make music a friend for life, the most important thing is love. Because of this passion
Because of love, we can always keep our initiative on the way of learning the piano. Because of love, we can resist difficulties and setbacks and continue to study and learn.
2.here are many kinds of talent: Every music lover has more or less the so-called talent, which in my opinion can be divided into three categories: the first category is sensitive to pitch, rhythm, timbre, etc., and can hear the subtle differences; the second category is the body coordination is particularly good; the third category is rich and delicate emotions and has the desire and ability to use music to express.
Therefore, natural talents are different in each person, we need to accept ourselves and discover our own characteristics.
3.Effort is not just practice: effort is not necessarily practicing 8 hours a day and taking a lunch break at the end of the year. Effort can also be reading a lot of books, studying videos of famous artists, looking for effective techniques and methods. It can also be doing analysis, understanding the harmonic requirements for musical timbre changes, studying the styles of different historical stages of music and finding one's own unique insights, and so on. The effort is to study music from as many angles as possible, to learn music, and to express music.
In summary, love, talent, and effort are all essential to learning the piano.
5 Tips to Thoroughly Understand Your Professional Lessons and Multiply Your Learning Efficiency
Have you ever wondered why, with the same frequency of lessons and the same teacher, some students progress so quickly while others remain at the same place for years? No, in most cases it's not that teachers are biased, it's that each student's approach to learning is different, resulting in wildly varying results. Today we'll share 5 great tips to help you get through a professional class.
① Self-checking before the lesson: Before the lesson, not only do you need to learn the repertoire, but it's also best to "self-check" it first, and the method I recommend is to pull through the entire repertoire for the lesson with the camera. Many problems will be exposed in this step, such as intonation problems, stability of the bowstring contact point, etc. This will significantly reduce the number of lessons. This way, you can drastically reduce your lesson time and leave it for the big problems that you really need the teacher's help to solve.
② Recording the lesson: Thanks to the ever-changing portable recording technology, we can easily record the professional lesson with our cell phones or iPads, without letting go of every tip and demonstration that the teacher has said and done.
③ Post-class notes: It's not enough to listen to the recording after class, because a professional class is at least an hour long, so if you just listen to it briefly, many details may be overlooked. My suggestion is to organize the key points of the class and write them down, make an outline, attach the teacher's demonstration method, you can use some electronic note taking software to divide them into categories, time will want to recall, a keyword can review the contents of the class at the time.
Sleep is important: We learn during the day, but the brain integrates and absorbs the knowledge learned during the day only when we sleep at night. Therefore, in order to improve your piano skills, not only do you need to work hard during the day, but you also need to get quality sleep at night. I personally go over the key points of the day's lessons half an hour before I go to bed, so that I can remember them clearly when I wake up the next day.
⑤ Attend concerts: It is recommended that you actively attend various student concerts in class and at school, and try to perform each piece you have learned, not only to give yourself the motivation to practice before the concert, but also to check again whether you have eaten all the difficult points under high pressure on stage. If you don't have enough concert opportunities, you can invite a few friends to perform with each other, and the frequency I recommend is at least 1-2 times a month. I hope you can learn as much as you can in your limited student career and lay a solid foundation for your future career.
