Building Your Repertoire theRightWay! Well it’s April here at PSoM! Students are diligently putting the final touches on their pieces forUpcoming Recital on May 31. With all of this hard work going on, let's pretend for a moment that the recitals are all over. Your performance went exceptionally well... Now what happens to your music? You say, “I’m ready for something new and exciting of course!” Well sure you are, and so are your teachers , but what will happen to the old material you just finished? As you are continuing your studies at the school you’ll continue to learn a variety of pieces. Once you have mastered a piece or a routine, it’s easy to write it off and never want to play or sing it again because you put in so much time and energy that you’re sick of it altogether! This is completely natural and understandable, but as musicians, you are continually building your repertoire! Repertoire is made up of new and old pieces. As you continue learning, you will eventually have a plethora of material at your fingertips (and voice) when it comes time to perform for yourself or the general public. So, here are “A few Ways to Keep Your Old Pieces and Routines Sharp without Hating Them!”
1.) Take a break! Take a rest from the old songs and routines until the thought of performing them again doesn’t make you want to set the concert stage on fire. Seriously, you do need a break for a while.
2.) Schedule private performances at home!My kids love playing recital at home and going up several times and playing something different each time. By doing this, they are reviewing their old and new pieces in a fun and productive way.
3.) Avoid “switch tasking” when reviewing old material. Once you have taken the required break and are working on new material, avoid randomly inserting sections of the old material just for mental relief from your new song. This is called “switch tasking” sometimes falsely referred to as “multi-tasking”. Multi-tasking is a myth. We can really only focus our attention to one thing at a time; constantly switching back and forth between different tasks (whether music, or work) is an extremely inefficient use of your time and energy.- Jeff Davis Director at Plymouth School of Music
