Recitals help your child fight stage fright, conquer fears, and gain self-confidence. The standing ovation and a round of applause that children receive introduces a sense of achievement in them.
Count the number of times you told yourself ‘never to do that again’, and found yourself doing exactly the same only a short while later? We all falter, fall short, and habitually repeat the same mistakes. As costly as this habit can get, we can consider these mistakes as the first step to the learning process.
From messing up the rhythm to missing the proper tempo, perfecting music requires persistence, diligence and an iron-will to improve. Whether it was wunderkind Mozart or incomparable Beethoven, music is an art developed over continual practice and patience for overcoming mistakes.
Initially, most children thoroughly appreciate their vocal and instrument training. However, as the training advances, tricky beats get tougher to perfect, and vocals strain their vocal cords. But children need to be taught that every incorrect rhythm, inaccurate pitch and wrong note is their first step towards improvement.
Remember, there aren’t any wrong notes or vocals, it is merely misplaced fingering on the piano or excessive strain on your vocal cords. Practice, practice and practice until your mistakes turn into your masterpieces.
Here at The Young Musician Music Institute, we make sure that every child gets an opportunity to showcase his talents and refine his skills. Our trained professionals guide our students on accepting their mistakes and navigate their way in transforming them into absolute masterpieces.
If your musical missteps frustrate you, read on to find out the top four ways of overcoming your frustration and mastering what challenges you.
Acknowledge the Challenge
First things first, the learning process requires you to identify, acknowledge and accept the mistakes. However, overcoming mistakes and turning them into your milestone warrant you to leave your comfort zone and take on the challenges head-on.
The ideal way to tackle the musical challenges is by dealing with them strategically. Help music aspirants identify the pieces they are confident with and pinpoint the parts that break their confidence. Once students have identified these particulars, tackle each challenge one at a time with increased focus and attention.
At Young Musician Music Institute, our music lessons entail thorough practice and keen attention from the instructors. Our trained professional music teachers help students in finding their strengths and identifying their weakness.
We believe that with comprehensive practice and careful guidance, every music aspirant can perfect their instruments and fine-tune their vocals.
You Can Do it
An iron-will, a fierce passion & an unshakable belief are the three essentials that you need to pave your way in the music industry.
When we make mistakes, it is natural to feel guilt, resentment and disbelief. However, a few words of motivation and a pat on the shoulder can make you go a long way.
When students do not perform up to the par, it is vital that instructors encourage them and guide them to perform better next time. Children are emotionally vulnerable, and any negative criticism may result in extinguishing their passion for music. Therefore, it is essential that instructors deliver their correction constructively and always appreciate their students’ efforts.
Other than words of encouragement, their progress can keep them motivated to improve every day. Students can make a list of their weak-points and tick them off upon rectifying them. Also, students can record them playing instruments or singing, and observe the progress they have made.
Always Give Your Best
Always give your best; it may sound like a demanding task and a daunting challenge. But with consistent practise coupled with inexhaustible motivation, it is easily achievable.
Where students need the determination to perform better, instructors need persistence in helping every student progress. It is crucial that students are motivated and focus only on their practice during their training sessions.
Often, the quality of practice is compromised while the number of practising hours keeps growing. In such cases, students are more likely to exhaust themselves and feel discouraged upon observing little to no progress.
For turning mistakes into masterpieces, students and instructors need to strive steadily towards improvement.
Keep Striving and Improving
When it comes to learning music, passion and perseverance are necessitated. Students need to decide whether they have the drive and the required perseverance to continue practising music or not.
Students who strive and persevere shall gain a new skill & develop confidence in overcoming their challenges. It is a student’s belief and an instructor’s motivation that successfully turns an aspirant into a maestro.
The Young Musician Music institute offer a platform that brings talented and young musicians together and assists them in building fundamental life concepts to achieve continued success.
