Putting it all together
You know about basics, intonation, sound production - here is how to use all this information to play beautiful music and realize your dreams!

Compare learning a piece with building a house:

After planning, you will need a long period where every technical detail is worked out securely.

Painting - and sound colors - come at the end!


Build your piece in stages to secure all of the right notes at the right time:

  • Memory
  • Intonation
  • Rhythm
  • Sound
Once all of these layers are in place, you can add the icing and put the cherry on top!


For detailed instructions, read:

Stanislawski: An Actor Prepares.


Research the history of the composer and of the piece you play.

Use the Internet and public or school Libraries for your research.

Enjoy your musical time travel!


Compare how different artists play the same phrase, then pick your own tempo!


Check as many details as you can think of within the connection between two notes.
