We send a child to a music school: what you need to know?

In the life of any parents, there comes a period when representatives of the younger generation of the family need to be identified in the world of various hobbies – dancing, sports, music. How nice to see how your child zealously extracts melodic harmonies from the instrument. It seems to us that this world is open only to the talented and gifted. But ask the average student in a music school: “How does the world of music seem to him?” Children’s answers will amaze you. Some will say that the music is beautiful and amazing, others will answer: “The music is good, but I will not send my own children to a music school.” Many “woeful disciples” did not finish their studies, and left this wonderful world of harmonies with negative impressions.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW AND WHAT TO EXPECT? SPECIFICITY A music school is an educational institution whose task is not only to introduce children to the world of music, but also to educate a musician who, in the future, may choose music as his profession. If you, as a parent, hope that your talent will delight you and your guests at the festive feast with the reproduction of your beloved Murka, then here you are mistaken. The specificity of the music school is in the classical repertoire. Continue reading

Selection of music by ear: genius or skill? Thinking

It is no secret that many children study at a music school without associating their future profession with music. As they say, just for yourself, for the overall development. But here is the interesting thing. Communicating with graduates of music schools, one can often encounter a paradoxical phenomenon: children freely read sheet music, expressively play complex classical works, and at the same time are completely at a loss to pick up accompaniment even to Murka.

What is the matter? Really pick up music by ear is the destiny of the elite, but in order to entertain the company of friends with modern tunes played to order, you need to have brilliant musical abilities? Subtract and multiply, do not offend the little ones What children do not teach at the music school: to build quintsept chords from all levels in all tones, and to sing vocals in the choir, and to appreciate Italian opera, and to play arpeggios with black keys at such a speed that the look behind fingers do not have time.

The turning point in the student musician

Dear friend! More than once in your life there will come a moment when you want to drop everything and retreat. Once this happens and with the desire to continue playing music. What can be done in this situation?

WHY DOES THE INITIAL ENTUSISM DISAPPEAR? There was a time when you eagerly awaited the opportunity to pick up a tool and flew like wings on lessons, rejoicing at your successes. And suddenly something changed, something that was once so easy became a routine, and the need to allocate time for additional classes is an unpleasant duty that I want to get rid of. Remember that you are not alone in your feelings. Even great musicians passed through this. And most importantly, be honest with yourself. Answer for yourself: is there a problem in music? Or at the teacher? In the vast majority of cases this is not so. The fact is that you want to play more with friends and have fun, and do not want to work. And music lessons will significantly cut your free time. Continue reading
