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

Modern music trends

But this is bad luck: to write briefly, interestingly and readily about what is happening in modern music. Yes, so write so that the thinking reader makes something out for himself, while the other at least read to the end. Otherwise, what’s going on with music today? What? – asks another. Composers – compose, performers – play, listeners – listen, students – …, – and everything is fine! So there is a lot of it, music, so much that you won’t listen to it all. This is true: wherever you come, something climbs into your ears. Therefore, many are “discovered” and listen to what he personally needs.

COMBINATION OR DIVERSITY? And music has one feature: it is able to unite and make huge human masses experience the same and very strong emotions. And this applies both to songs, marches, dances, and to symphonies and operas, too. It’s just worth recalling the song “Victory Day” and “Leningrad Symphony” by Shostakovich and wondering: what kind of music today can unite and unite? The answer will probably be sad: the one under which you can stomp your feet, clap your hands, jump and have fun “until you drop.” Music of strong emotions and emotions today on the sidelines.

How to learn to sing if there is no hearing, or, What to do if “the bear has stepped on the ear”?

It happens that a person really wants to learn to sing, but people around him, often unaware, tell him that nothing will come of it, because he allegedly does not have hearing. Is this really so? How to learn to sing to a person who “has no musical ear”? In truth, the concept of “lack of hearing” (I mean, musical) is incorrect. Each person has an innate ability to distinguish pitch. Only in some it is well developed, in others it is not very developed. Some ethnic groups of the East are considered the most musical – sound pitch is an integral part of their speech. Therefore, they have no problems with musicality. The Russian language is not so rich in this regard, it is simply arranged differently. How to learn to sing to Russians? Read on! Another thing is important …

IF EVERYONE HAS HEARING, WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE SING? So, everyone has a musical ear. But besides this, there is such a thing as coordination between voice and hearing. If it is absent, then the person hears the notes and distinguishes their pitch, but cannot sing correctly, simply because he cannot imagine how to do it. However, this is not a sentence, you can learn to sing absolutely with any source data. The main thing is systematic and focused exercises. And these are not common words. This is really what you need – just work out, work on yourself, learn to sing like you once learned to walk, talk, hold a spoon, read or drive a car. Continue reading
