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.
Callum covers some of his super secret (okay maybe not really secret) tricks and techniques to sight reading music. He also discusses the whole tune learning process! A great class packed with great info.
In this class we take a look at what it takes to be a good composer. We first examine existing work and see what dynamics we can use to make a good tune. What chord structures can be used to invoke emotion in the listener? We also discuss two bar phrasing, high hand & low hand dominant phrasing, and idiom choice.
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!
