When I’m learning a new piece of music…

from scratch, I know there is a lot that needs to get done….

Like…a lot!

Especially when it’s a piece that is really challenging me and pushing my limits.

What if the tempo is too fast? What if I can’t hit the high Z?! How can I lip trill like that?

If any of these challenges sound familiar, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Tackling a new piece of music is really tricky and there are a lot of moving parts. That’s why in todays episode of The Practice Room we take a look at how I go about learning new music.

 

This is something I made up for myself while I was studying at the Liège Conservatory. I needed some type of structure while I was learning so many new pieces and challenging my musicianship to such an extreme level.

So I made this chart that has two sections…

The fist section is mostly research based. Terms, composer background, and history are all crucial elements when it comes to making great interpretive decisions.

The second section goes over my four steps to learn and mastering a new piece and how you can track your progress with a system.
