Repetition Is The Key To Learning Something Deeply

Repetition isrepparttar key to learning something deeply. It works most effectively when you are isolating a small amount of material, becauserepparttar 145019 object of your focus will be more specific.

When you haverepparttar 145020 correct chord movement for part of an exercise or tune under you hands, repeat it continuously until is flows. You should notice a gradual increase in your comfort level as you continue repetitions, eventually remove your eyes from bothrepparttar 145021 music andrepparttar 145022 keys, and keep repeating untilrepparttar 145023 movements seem easy. This activity is especially important for problem spots in harmonic exercise or tunes.

Try to have your hands in position, actually touchingrepparttar 145024 notes before you strike a chord. This will reinforce your "hand memory" ofrepparttar 145025 chord's shape. When you are ready to playrepparttar 145026 chord, lift your hands an inch or two and droprepparttar 145027 full weight of your hands onrepparttar 145028 keys, going torepparttar 145029 bottom ofrepparttar 145030 key bed.

At first, you probably will miss some notes, and that is OK; simply makerepparttar 145031 necessary corrections and continue with more repetitions, keeping that feeling of dropping. This will achieve a fuller sound, and your hands will learnrepparttar 145032 shape ofrepparttar 145033 chords much more quickly and securely.
