WUaS Idea- and Academic ResourcesEdit

IdeasEdit

This page is for sharing ideas about playing / practicing, particularly for making practicing fun or enjoyable, and even flourishing. Explore enjoying the sounds of the music your instrument generates.


Here are some developing, online, Music Playing Spaces, that are free and open: http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2012/06/music-playing-spaces-on-wednesdays-and.html.


Try to play / practice at least 20 minutes a day, per instrument, or sing, - with enjoyment, and socially some of the time. Explore in your playing communicative music-making, e.g. a grandmother plays 'Pop goes the weasel' on her violin and her 5 year granddaughter plays the 'pop' sound on her own little violin, plucking a string, and 'hears this,' makes music with her grandmother, and loves it; extend this.


Marsalis, Wynton and Yo-Yo Ma. 2010. Guidelines for practicing a musical instrument. scottmacleod.com/GuidelinesPracticingMusicalInstrument.htm.


"Recording became a habit and I have pretty much kept the recorder running for over 30 years." (PM Jack Lee - http://www.leeandsonsbagpipes.com/bagpipe-music-library/ - who has won every major prize in solo and pipeband bagpiping) ... seems like a good practice when learning and practicing the bagpipe, or practice chanter (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Bagpipe_Tutorials), and or instrument (see the Music School at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Music_School). I'm going to begin this practice - just got a new hard drive with more disk space :)


Use the word 'playing,' vis-a-vis playfulness, to transform the negative connotations of the word practicing, linguistically. Similarly transform discipline into 'focus,' and play. Playing / Making music, a lot and enjoyably, is the key thing.

Sociocultural context ... if people are making music all around, with a lot of good models, and people to play with, the learning of technique, which can take hours, can be part of a conversation. Also, create an immersive milieu, by playing yourselves, where there's so much music around to 'converse' with, so that your children pick up music freely, and learn by playing with. The internet can generate these possibilities in new; see how you can engage them.

I think playing / practicing a musical instrument is more fun socially than independently, and facilitating open and free 'Music Playing Spaces' in a Google + Hangout in group video chat online, can makes this possible in new ways. If you'd like to try this, email worlduniversityandschool@gmail.com or simply join one when it's happening on the worlduniversityandschool@gmail.com G+ page. See, too ... http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2012/06/music-playing-spaces-on-wednesdays-and.html and http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2012/12/black-buck-free-musical-education-at.html ... where everyone plays their own instrument, muting ourselves ... (any e.g. bagpipe, voice, guitar ... play the instrument with which you want to develop 'flow' experiences with :). Let me know if you're interested ... This will help further the World University Music School - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Music_School. (S.M.)


How to make regular playing / practices, in a rock band, a pipe band, an a capella, singing group or a chamber music group, really fun, getting to 'space,' or 'transcendance,' or fugue-informed freedom for example, like the Grateful Dead did, for example? What's the 'structure' of regular, most-fun music-playing together (in the beginning of music-making, and for experienced musicians)?

ideas: ... listen, relax, let musicians choose their own music, keep the group small, regularly make time to explore improvisation, with a musician facilitating this with the other musicians, begin with the blues. Choose, for example, J.S. Bach or similarly moving, and accessible, music, and listen to good, related CDs, mp3s, in Music-playing Spaces in a Google + Group Video chat hangout ...

Explore jamming at http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Musical_Jamming :)


I've found there to be little frustrations when learning a musical instrument, and that returning to the relaxation response, or the neurophysiology (release) of soaking in the Harbin Hot Springs' warm water pool at about body temperature, and / or a regular meditation practice, to be helpful, as a kind of bodymind basis to return home to, and from which even to play.


Find a way to get paid money for playing/practicing. For example, if you join a police bagpipe band, as well as the police, in Scotland, you may get paid for bagpiping, and possibly for as much as 2 hours per day (in addition to the other aspects of this job).


Translate the 'discipline' word, which has negative connotations (for me) into the word 'focus' and find the joy of focusing daily. (S.M.)


'Shepherding' vis-a-vis practicing, in many forms, has a lot of merit, especially in terms of sociality and focus.


Structure and vary your practice for your own instrument:

For example, with bagpiping you might play, beginning with 10 minutes, and building up to 1-5 hours per day in your year 7 +:

Piobaireachd on Mondays and Thursdays

March, Strathspeys and Reels on Tuesday and Fridays and

Hornpipes, Jigs, Slow Airs, etc., on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Then adapt such a schedule / structure for your own instrument.


Play, play, play every day into the bodymind electric :)


How to bring together playing / practicing a Musical Instrument with 'Eliciting Loving Bliss Neurophysiology' in flourishing ways?

http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Loving_Bliss_(eliciting_this_neurophysiology)


Guidelines Practicing Loving Bliss vis-a-vis Musical Instrument ...

http://scottmacleod.com/GuidelinesPracticingLovingBlissvavMusicalInstrument.htm


Would it be possible to create a practicing / playing application that parallels these principles in DragonBox Algebra:

"The key principles used in designing DragonBox are: Students learn more when they are engaged. The most important factor to learning is feedback. Feedback should be immediate to be effective. To feel mastery is key to staying motivated. Students should be presented with challenges that match their level of mastery. Students should be assessed in a formative, non-intrusive way. A safe environment is the key to learning. Peer learning is very effective. Discovery or experiential learning is much more effective than instructional-based teaching. Students learn differently and at different paces. The language we use to teach mathematics is a barrier to understanding." (http://dragonboxapp.com/story.html)

"Great show ! I remember Jerry saying in an interview about this time in his playing he was practicing up to 8 hours a day with a minimum of 2 to 3 hours a day.He said if he did not play every day , after 3 days he would completely lose his edge,miss notes, not play sharp and have to practice back into it.We miss you Jerry !" (A comment from this Dead show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ldse7hpLphY)

"In terms of thinking through practicing further (still not yet for flourishing :), - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Practicing_-_Playing_a_Musical_Instrument - I'll think I'll start to add some more specific goals (per Marsalis and Ma), instead of just repeating and thereby furthering fluidity and bodymind memory."
