Learning music means learning to play songs or pieces – right? Actually, if you approach music that way you’re drastically limiting your musical potential. http://www.musicalityunleashed.com
Yet songs *can* hold the key to the most enjoyable and effective kind of music learning there is… How can that be?
Music education normally focuses purely on learning to reproduce songs on your instrument.
That can be satisfying at first but it quickly makes you start feeling like a robot rather than a real musician – painstakingly learning new pieces note-by-note and always worried about playing a wrong note.
At the other end of the spectrum you could focus purely on your “inner musician”, training your ears and brain to understand music on a deep level.
That’s really valuable and often it’s really helpful to rebalance things by including more of that kind of work in your music learning.
The problem is that kind of music theory and ear training is often taught with dry, abstract studies and exercises. You develop the understanding but it’s completely separate to the songs you’ve been learning to play and the real music you’re passionate about.
It can feel like you’re bending over backwards to connect the two worlds: of understanding musical concepts intellectually, and playing “real music”.
So how can you have the best of both worlds?
