Effective practice techniques for all serious musicians!
Please note: this is not a studio quality recording. It was taped as an informal lecture and so the quality reflects that. We feel the information it covers is worthy of being released on DVD!
The goal of practicing, no matter the activity, is to transform behavior from the realm of mechanics and technique to learned instinct, employing little if any conscious thought. This means the mind is free to dwell on matters of content, aesthetics and expression. Specifically, practicing an art for demands rigor and creativity acting in tandem. In the final result, an artist's work reflects the depth of their practicing process.
In this informal classroom lecture, David Liebman covers the following topics:
• Where and when to practice
• Value of maintaining a practice diary
• Use of books
• Instrumental technique first
• Length of practice period
• Highlighting weaknesses
