Memorization Techniques

When first learning a new piece, it is essential to accurately read the notes, rhythm and develop a general feel for the overall concept of the piece. Student should form correct first impressions, because mistakes learned early are difficult to eradicate, and may cause problems in a performance.

Here is the correct memorization procedures :
1) Slow and careful practice
2) Attention to tempo, phrasing, dynamics, pedal, fingering
3) Learning the form of the piece
4) Developing the correct kinesthetic (muscular) relax necessary for a secure performance
5) Understanding the harmonic structure of the piece
6) Mental practice
7) Playing one hand and miming the other

演奏級

最近多了學生和家長問我演奏級的問題,我在此與大家解釋及分享。
學生考畢八級,便可按程度預備演奏級的曲目,所謂演奏級,其實也有幾個級別 :
英國皇家音樂學院 : ARSM–>DipABRSM–>LRSM–>FRSM
倫敦聖三一音樂學院 : Advanced Certificate–>ATCL–>LTCL–>FTCL

英國皇家音樂學院的文憑試(ARSM除外)包括Performance, Quick study, Programme notes和Viva Voce(口試 : 問有關作曲家、樂曲、歷史等問題),考試必須全科及格,否則該部份要重考。

倫敦聖三一音樂學院的文憑試只包括Performance和programme notes。

大部份老師及學生都會考倫敦聖三一音樂學院的演奏文憑,及格率比英國皇家音樂學院的較高。雖然及格率較高,但始終都是一張文憑,並不是想象中的容易,一定要努力、集中和堅持。
