Strategies for Learning and Memorising New Tunes

The National Piping Centre Shop

Product Code: BK000083

This is second book in the series from Stephanie Burns Ph.D. It comes hot on the heels of the popular "Practice Strategies That Cause Musical Improvement".
Memorising is the fastest way to learn any new tune.
Playing in a pipe band or in solo competitions depends upon your ability to learn and memorise music.
For some this may mean learning and memorising many new tunes each year for band or solo performances.
Memorising your music is about engraving the score into your brain such that you can confidently perform it at the very time you need it, without fear or anxiety of forgetting.
There is no logic in separating the processes of learning a new tune and memorising it. Memorising and learning should rightly be integrated into one process. Separating these processes means at least twice the time invested and as you'll learn that, separation makes memorising the tune much more challenging.
Every worthwhile piece of music should be memorised right from the start.

In this book you will learn the strategies to synchronously learn and memorise new tunes.
