In this class we look at a the hornpipe The Insurrection. This challenging tune is a composition by Andrew Douglas and a great exercise in playing to the foot. Carl also touches a bit on the Dojo Memory Challenge Method.
Bruce shares some great advice on getting your head and hands around new music. In this class, you'll run through some of Bruce's proven methods for learning new tunes and getting them memorized. Bruce shares some best practices and how to adapt them to suit your own style of learning.
Vin walks through some fundamentals and small "drills" to identify the weaker areas of your own sight reading skills, then goes into detail about strategies and tricks that will beef up those areas and "level-up" your sight reading skills.
In this class Carl brings together tune building and memorization together in a way never seen before (maybe). You are actually way better at memorization then you ever knew and you can memorize tune faster then ever before with this simple technique. Warning, watching this class may result in others believing you have superhuman memory powers!
In this session, Bruce takes us through his approach to learning new tunes. From memorization tips to using musical ideas into phrases to the mental side of learning new things - everything you need to improve your repertoire.
In this session we take a look at how we learn and it's relation to what will motivate us as we tackle the bagpipe. We go through the three ways in which we learn and how to make associations between the audial and visual worlds. We also examine "muscle memory" and how that relates to the education process. A must for all teachers and students alike!
In this class, we take a few questions from the students. How does one memorize better? What are the fundamentals behind good memorization? Then, we discuss great players, and why their fingers look "the way they do" when they play. A good class!
