study music

Learning music five times faster is about learning how to learn and putting known methods into practice, pun intended.

An idea about taking a short break, clearing the mind, and refocusing your energy. It’s called a reboot.

How many times have you heard “I wish I’d never quit my (piano, guitar, trumpet, cello) lessons from folks that might have heard you play or hear someone else play? There are lots of reasons that many young students quit lessons, but one that Kenny Werner expounded on has me very intrigued this week.

Can education system be the problem with learning to play an instrument? The answer will only be given in what ever situation you are in now and what approach is taken with the study of music.

Kenny Werner Workshop and concert was a great opportunity to revisit the playing vs practicing concept and to reestablish a mindset of learning music. Every musician should pick up this book. Having sat in on the live workshop and program has given me new motivation and causing me to think about the study and art of music playing again.
