A recorder is one of the most important wind instruments that every child should learn. It is one of the best qualities that can be bestowed on a kid. If you’ve learned how to play it when you’re a kid, never mind how long it’s been, you probably understand why we emphasize the importance of learning to play it at an early age. Being a cheap instrument, its importance is downplayed and seen as a cheap alternative to ‘real’ instruments, as some might say. This is possibly the reason why a recorder is usually taught in big groups, as in schools, and not enough attention is paid to the musicality of the lesson. Even if you’ve learned how to play the recorder more than 15 years ago, those skills are certainly useful when you learn the flute. Starting with how quickly you can pick up flute concepts, there’s no limit on how playing the recorder as a child can help you a few years later when you learn how to play flute. Having mastered the recorder earlier in life, learning to play the flute is all too easy. That is because the skill to play the recorder can be extended to the flute. Some of these concerns the control of breathing, which is very important when it comes to mastering the art of playing flutes. Just because you forget to read music doesn’t mean that this simple ability isn’t going to be activated by your brain when you start playing again. On some point in your subconscious, you can do some, if not all, of the following: • Control the breathing as needed when you play • Coordinate the movement of the finger, breathing and gestures of the tongue; • How to be creative and relate emotionally to whatever you’re performing. • How to decipher your music • Stay calm while performing, which is of crucial importance to performing good music. Training to play the recorder is not just useful to those who want to learn how to flaunt later in life. This also instills essential qualities that contribute to other aspects of life. For example, children are able to develop their motor skills and coordination skills. It also helps to develop cognitive skills. They are critical for good mental health. Communication abilities have also been acquired. Knowing how to learn how to play a recorder at an early age will help you, the question arises as to how best children can know how to play. The age of five is generally recommended. By that age, they will learn how to create simple sounds and how to combine those sounds to make their own tunes. You also hear how music can be made by covering the holes.
There are moments when the sun shines, the house is silent, the piano beckons, and music blasts like breathing out of your eyes. This article is not about times like that. This is about practicing through days when the diagnosis only got worse, when the divorce papers arrived, when a loved one slides further and further into a physical or mental illness. In other words, when life is falling apart, this is about practising the piano. It’s ironic that the times we most need the solace of music are often the times we find it the hardest to drag ourselves to the piano bench and play. The fight is not theoretical one. One pianist friend of mine is battling pancreatic cancer. Throughout my own life, when a close family member succumbs to many types of mental illness, the most severe of which is dementia, I watch helplessly. I know from experience that placing my hands on the keys is only the beginning of the battle; the bigger struggle is learning how to hang on to the lifeline of the notes in the middle of an emotional hurricane. Recognize that things have changed, and set new targets Big upheavals impacting life alter us. What may have seemed like a reasonable idea in the past might not be the best strategy when life is unpredictable. It’s time to ease up. If there is no energy to pursue some ambitious plans, put them on hold. Most of us don’t play our best when our attention and energy are drained. Relax. Let go. Instead of pushing towards a big goal, use practice time to nourish and sooth. Set a new objective-one that ‘s made with gentleness and flexibility. My friend who has cancer, for example, is hoping to play for a few tournaments this summer. Both situations are low-pressure. She performs a repertoire she loves and she knows very well. Goals give motivation straight away. They bring hope.Also if the intention is to play the piece for a friend, in what might seem like utter darkness, it is a glimmer of light. Play music that speaks to you now I just love to play tangos. I planned to record a fistful of these. And then one of my loved ones fell apart a few months ago. I soon learned that no matter how much I tried to discipline myself and stick with my beloved tangos, they didn’t speak to me any more. I play music now that pulls me out of the emotional storm and gently brings me back to myself. In this time, how do I know what parts are right for me? I walk away from the piano feeling rinsed with darkness and grounded in something bigger than myself when I’m done practising them (regardless of how badly the practice time went). Be Gentle Get enough sleep and get enough exercise. Eat healthy, nourishing foods. However slow down whenever possible. Appreciate every little bit of progress while at the piano. Screw up (on the piano or throughout life)? Forgive yourself, and move forward. Anger and anger (again, at the piano or in life) hit a boiling point? Remember that, and let go of it. Tragedy typically causes people to respond by choosing one of two things: anger or sympathy. It ‘s up to us to choose compassion-particularly during the periods when we feel least compassionate. It’s a profoundly personal journey to find a way through the impossible-one without a map or a guide. Some days are better than some other days. But time teaches me this: the piano makes all days infinitely richer-a “friend” who absorbs pain, chants with joy, and ultimately reconnects us with hope and with the center of our own.
The question is, are online music lessons right for you with a remote teacher or would the lessons be better in person? As with anything else, each method has both advantages and disadvantages. Some will relate to you and others do not, but before you know, it is best to spend some time investigating all the facts. While you can try to learn without a teacher by watching online videos, we will concentrate on the pros and cons of live music lessons with a teacher, taken either online or in-person, for the purposes of this article. Convenience One of the clearest reasons to take music lessons online is convenience. There is no flying involved, so there is no need to move your instrument from one place to another. That means your kid can get off the bus and take his music lesson right at home, without having to be available to drive him around. If you’re a busy mom to cart multiple kids around, this could be a real life-saver! You could also have more flexibility with the times lessons are available, as you’ll have more teachers to pick from. Choice of Teachers If you’ve been looking for a qualified teacher and can’t find one, then online music lessons might be your answer! Thanks to the internet, teachers all over the country can take lessons. This may be especially relevant if you live in a remote area where there are simply no trained teachers around. Online lessons with an experienced , professional instructor are much better than lessons provided by an inferior instructor in person. Always Play Your Own Instrument This can be a huge advantage if you are learning an instrument, like the piano, that is too big or too heavy to carry around. With online music lessons, you’ll always be able to play your own instrument, so if switching back and forth bother you, this is the perfect solution. This could also be called a con though. If you practice at home on an inferior instrument because that’s what you can afford, your teacher might have an instrument of much higher quality in his or her studio. Advanced students could really take advantage of the possibility to play a superior instrument. Recording Your Lessons for Future Reference Recording your on-line lessons for future reference is very easy.
