Remember the strong and complex tasks that we outlined above, which will help you make the most of your music.
1. Decide which music you like
Naturally, we want to play music that we already love to listen to. As adults, we probably have a clear musical preference. Some types of music are more emotional than other types of music. Little children do not usually do this because their musical preferences are still being formed.
Learning the music that we like gives us the motivation to continue to practice. Browse your music library and determine the type of music that you like. Perhaps it will be useful for you to start with a certain artist, composer or genre. Then find out what you need to play in this style. A good way to find the cover of a song on Youtube. Sometimes you can even find a link to the score in the video description.
You also need to determine your exact preferences for music. If you like Guns and Roses, do you like Axl Rose ringtones? Or do you like solos on Slash? Maybe you like the rhythm provided by drums and bass?
2. Select the tool carefully
Adults prefer to study music
If you have a particular preference for a certain type of music, you must choose the right instrument for this type of music. Some tools are more suitable for certain styles than others. If you are a fan of rock and metal, you may prefer to study an electric guitar or drum. If you like classical music, piano or violin can be more interesting. While you can play the cover of classical music on an electric guitar and play metal headdresses on the piano, you will find it more attractive to learn the type of music that suits your favorite type of music.
You must choose the tool that fits your lifestyle. Do you have a room to play the piano at home? If you are moving, it is better to choose a portable instrument, such as a clarinet. If you have thin-walled and loosened neighbors, perhaps the most suitable digital piano with adjustable volume.
3. Open approach
Although you have a preferred musical style, it is important to be open to new music. For example, even if you are interested in popular pianos, learning and listening to baroque music will not hurt. You can get new ideas and even enjoy it. You will be surprised to find that you can enjoy metal covers with popular jazz and Bach music. In addition, mastering Baroque styles can improve your skills. For example, the practice of the trilogy Bach Sinfonias can train your ears to recognize the melody lines and increase the flexibility of the finger when you simultaneously play with several melodies.
4. Clear distraction
The time of practice should be sacred. During practice there should be no distractions. You do not have to cook soup, discuss projects on Facebook Messenger, or help your child do homework during class. When you are engaged in music, you should completely concentrate on honing your musical talents.
This requires a degree of self-discipline. When you practice, think about putting a timer in front of you. Make sure that you continue to practice until the necessary time passes. Another thing you can do is create a supportive exercise environment. The house has a musical corner or room, nothing can distract you. In your sacred place there should not be a computer, a mobile phone or a crying child to study music.
The good news is that you must be able to take proactive measures to minimize interference. When you want to learn music, you are determined to make the most of the practice class. Children need more supervision.
5. Set the schedule, but be flexible and at the same time
If you plan to "practice at a convenient time," you may find yourself in very small practice. You must develop a practice plan that will help you keep up with your progress. Practical exercises should be regular and regular in order to minimize distractions. Getting help from your partner or spouse can minimize you, especially when it comes to children. Practice does not take too much time. It's enough 30 minutes each time. If even 30 minutes is too long, you can find several free time slots during the day, and you can practice for 10-12 minutes, which is comparable to our average adult attention. You can also schedule several "music breaks" per day for unpacking before preparing for the next task.
Although you must plan regular exercises, you must also be flexible. Sometimes you may have Bole
