跟拍子機練琴的好與壞

有好多家長問, 學習樂器是否需要用到拍子機

通常三至六歲的小朋友, 未能適應外來的聲音, 會受到拍子機影響, 彈不到歌曲, 我並不建議使用。
但如果這段期間, 要考琴試 / 比賽 的話, 嘗試學習跟拍子機亦何, 但跟不上也不用擔心, 下次再考試的時候會慢慢習慣。最好在這段期間學習開口數拍子, 將來, 對小朋友的節奏感亦比較好。

如正在讀小學 或 8 歲開始學琴的學生, 可以選擇用一些基本練習 – 即係「開手指」的課本作為練習跟拍子機, 如: Beyer / Czerny, 因為這些拍子比較穩定, 對學習聽拍子機比較有幫助。 6 more words

Time Out

 I hosted the Jam Zone for the Humboldt Folklife Society on Saturday.  It was a long day for the kid, as we had no tent and were tucked away from most of the festival around the corner and behind a building.   596 more words

app alert: tunable

Student cellists/musicians: this app tunable is brilliant! Here’s why:

  1. It shows you CLEARLY in pink or green if you are in tune or not, can play/hold a pitch for you to match, and shows you the consistency of your bowing (and sound output.) This is a big eye opener for beginning cellist!

Music Recording

I drew this after a (frustrating) day spent recording audio by myself. Oh, well – at least I got a cartoon out of it.
