Getting tired of hearing a song you are practicing

Post by kentaku_sama on Sat Jun 05, 2010 10:57 pm

One thing I can't stand is when I'm practicing through a piece of music i composed or arranged and before I half-way perfect it I get so annoyed with hearing each time I practice it that I just lose enthusiasm. Is there any way to not get bored with a song I'm practicing before I perfect it or what? Any ideas?

Make a pause, listen to different music. Play another piece, your old repertoire, whatever! Or sight read something different.

Then take a good breath, and get back to it Wink

I know that sometimes pieces become horrible just because you practice them all the time! That's why pauses are important: never practice more than 30 min without taking a little break (max. 5 min) Smile

Yeah, when I was practicing some pieces, I got really bored of them. Just try to play something else, or don't practice that much every day.

One trick is to only practice parts of it.. Not really hearing the piece at any time. I know Zimmerman does this, he also practice parts and don't even play it once before his recital or concert. This is not to be suggested though, unless you have his skills Smile

Also don't practice with emotion when you are working on the technique. The you will get drained faster as well!

If your using a keyboard or a digital piano try using other voices or do adjustment to the voice like adding echo or so so you don't get bored when practicing the same thing

Or do some changes to why you practice , like add different arpeggios or try new things in it
