首先，一個人必須正確地演奏一些東西，在你用正確的位置、正確的手指、正確的弓法演奏一些東西之前，可能需要多次嘗試。許多學生認為，一旦他們經歷了正確學習某件事的艱鉅過程，他們就完成了任務。但這實際上只是開始——然後你必須正確地重複它，至少 10 次。然後你明天必須重複同樣的事情，至少 10 次。 Suzuki 說 10,000 次是重複某件事的正確次數，與他一起工作的學生和老師證明他的意思是字面意思。我的一位老師說過一句話：“完美，加 100！”對於常規練習來說，一百次重複可能是一個更現實的目標；每天 10 次，持續 10 天。或者，只需每天兩次演奏您的作品，持續 50 天。更好的是，一年內每天都演奏一些你知道的東西；那几年後聽起來會很不錯！
小提琴譜（暮光之城主題曲）《a thousand year》
Music is the sound of thinking.
What is it like to learn the violin, viola, or cello as an adult? Adult violin learning, to a certain extent, is a cross between ''learning a new language'' and ''learning body coordination. If you can understand and accept these two conditions, then you can go a long way! But that means you have to resist the embarrassment of actually starting from the beginning, and you need to be prepared to do more repetitive work than you expect.
''Music is language''
When you learn a foreign language, you start with alphabets, numbers, and very simple words and phrases like "hello". When you learn to play an instrument, you start with simple tunes and exercises, and you may not jump right into the more complex tunes that inspire you to play. Of course, you should still listen to that piece and make it your goal, but learn basic fluency first.
In your class, don't be embarrassed because you're not good at playing. I've noticed a phenomenon with adult beginners: sometimes they use the speaking style in lessons to avoid actually playing! They don't really know what they're doing, but they just feel more comfortable because they know how to talk, but they don't know how to play yet. Be aware that you may feel weird about doing something you're not good at, especially in front of others.
Accept the fact that you will make mistakes, play poorly, creak, misunderstand instructions, make mistakes, etc. It's all part of the learning process. You don't learn to walk after many falls. Falling – and getting back up – is part of keeping you balanced.
Also, don't be embarrassed to play "Twinkle Little Stars" or other seemingly simple and possibly childish tunes. Beginners start here for a reason; these tunes are at the heart of everything. (Have you ever heard what Mozart did with that simple piece?) Starting with the basic repertoire of a simple piece sets the stage for you to build more complex music. lay a solid foundation!
''Music is dance''
Playing the violin (or viola, cello, bass, guitar) is a physical activity. Like any physical activity, it involves strength, flexibility, and muscle memory. Just as a physical therapist will give patient-specific exercises to repeat when relearning to walk after a serious injury, a violin teacher will give students a variety of exercises and assignments to build technique. If you want to achieve physical fluency on the violin, then you will need to practice and repeat these different exercises every day.
First, one has to play something correctly, and it may take many tries before you can play something with the right position, with the right fingers, with the right bow. Many students believe that once they have gone through the arduous process of learning something correctly, they are done. But that's really just the beginning – then you have to repeat it correctly, at least 10 times. Then you have to repeat the same thing tomorrow, at least 10 times. Suzuki said 10,000 times was the right number of times to repeat something, and the students and teachers he worked with proved he meant it literally. One of my teachers once said, "Perfect, add 100!" A hundred repetitions might be a more realistic goal for regular practice; 10 per day for 10 days. Or, just play your composition twice a day for 50 days. Better yet, play something you know every day for a year; it will sound great in those years!
As mentioned above, repetition is absolutely essential to achieve fluency in the instrument.
