Hi, I’m Vi Wickam and this is you my Talent Forge Quick Tip of the Week!
This tip is all about what gets you into trouble and how to get out of it!
We all have those difficult passages in a song that we practice over and over and over again. But they still seem to be difficult.
You know, you get those difficult passages that continue to be a challenge.
Now this tip is – rather than working on the passage, or in addition to working on the passage itself, work INTO the passage.
So, take the measure before, or the 2 or 3 notes before the difficult part, and work your way into the difficult part, instead of working just the difficult part itself.
It will give you a connection.
It will also help you identify where the difficult part happens.
Maybe you’re creating tension before you get to the difficult part and it’s that anticipation. And it often is what’s causing the trouble.
So, rather than just working on the difficult part, take the measure, or the few notes before the difficult part- work your way into the difficult part.
You will find that there is more freedom!
And that is how you get yourself out of trouble!
And that is also your myTalentForge Quick Tip of the Week! See you next time!
