Learning Music On A Deeper Level

The two most used words for any music teacher are "slow down". I've lost count on how many times I have used this phrase with my students in any given week.

Of course, it's only natural to want to play a new song up to speed, but learning songs at a slower tempo will allow you to make fewer mistakes - and making fewer mistakes means less frustration.

Muscle Memory

The more time you invest in any one song, especially at a slow, concentrated pace, the more developed your muscle memory will become for that song. 

If you've never heard of muscle memory, it's best defined as a muscle movement that has been performed so many times that it becomes second nature...you don't even have to think about it. It's like your hands and fingers are on auto-pilot.

Knowing The Music

  • By practicing new songs slowly in the beginning, you will notice more of what's going on in each specific song, and you will get more out of it.

It's like driving down a road with a beautiful ocean view at a hundred miles an hour. You're not going to get the same experience as someone who is taking a nice leisurely stroll down that same ocean view road.

By slowing down, you're going to hear seagulls in the distance and the roaring of the waves. You're going to smell the salt air and get a better sense of your surroundings...and you'll get more out of it.

  • By slowing down at the beginning of every new song, you will make less mistakes, develop your muscle memory to a greater degree and gain a deeper understanding of the music -- all of which will carry over to each new song you learn.
