(back) Subject: Good advise Ron, here's more From: "Wayne Grauel" <wayne@eminent-usa.com> Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2002 11:08:37 -0500   Good Points Ron.   I was taught by my professor to take the parts and change the meter in practice. Practice in dotted rhythms and then invert the process...   Dotted 1/4 - 1/8 then 1/8 - dotted 1/4 for example. same fingering each time...   This forces the brain to think and internalize the music.   When a wrong note is hit, stop.... go back and program in the right one in our huge computers we have for brains...   Also start at the back of the piece and work forward... this way you are not struggling to learn a new part as you go, you reinforce what was previously learned.   Taking a piece that was learned and bringing it back years later with this method works wonders... Identify all of those parts that are a "bear".... work those first and the rest falls under finger without wasting a lot of effort (and time).   What you mentioned works very well for music of a "like style".   I once subbed at a church. A young 8 year old girl was going to play a Vivaldi Violin Concerto. Her dad was down working with her between services trying to struggle through this piece.... I said to myself... hummmmm   I asked if he wanted me to give it a shot... this kid was going to town on the concerto from memory and Dad was totally lost!   He was relieved that I asked. Fortunately, from playing the Walther and Vivaldi/Bach organ concertos, the style was so familiar and "predictable", I was able to virtually sight read the performance without practice.. and without stress!   What a gifted little girl that was.... and from a small farming community in rural Maryland too!   Wayne

Hand Pedal is a nightmare.   No doubt. What I wonder is whether it is a *helpful* nightmare (I = continue to think so, but others' mileage seems to vary.)   Practicing in rhythms and practicing on partly silent keyboards can also = be very off-putting experiences. No pain, no gain.   When I was in third grade, my piano method book had a little anecdote = about a basketball coach who attached an inner ring to the hoop, so that when = his team practiced, they needed to aim the ball even more accurately to sink = it than in real life. That must have been a nightmare, too, but it probably helped them.

(back) Subject: Re: Good advise Ron, here's more From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2002 11:59:01 EST   Hi Wayne:   I use the dotted eights in French period 17th-18th Centuries to approximate the practice of ineqalis hope I spelled that right. It adds a lot more snap to the music. Rondeau by Moret comes to mind. Here you dot the first 1/8 note and play the second one in the series as a 1/16th. This remains consistant throughout the series of 1/8th notes.   Ron

All passive, apparently, all going in, nothing coming = out, nothing sticking either. Even Elvis did better than that.   I dismissed rock music similarly once in a group discussion in which James Litton was present. I claimed that it is not participatory. He took great exception to that assumption. At rock concerts, the fans in the audience who know the songs sometimes sing along with great enthusiasm as a large crowd, not to mention other ways of showing their involvement. Most of = the time church musicians, he said, can only dream of eliciting such fervent participation.

They have a Moeller, some of = you won't like that, but it has a very good sound. They are reworking the organ, and I am not sure what stage they were in. The organist, Father Davidson is very congenial. I was there in August, and he said that part of the renovation included a state trumpet. We talked for about a half hour about the organ, even after he had already played 4 services.   It is well worth the visit. I attended the noon mass on Sunday and found = it to be very enjoyable.   I gues even us LCMS can get out of every now and then.   Jim H ----- Original Message ----- From: "George Greene" <ggreenjeans@yahoo.com> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Tuesday, March 12, 2002 11:21 AM Subject: New Orleans     > We will be in New Orleans on Sunday, March 17. > __________________________________________________ > Do You Yahoo!? > Try FREE Yahoo!

I've always used those organmaster things, but have recently found that a pair of Converse high tops do the trick as well. ++++++++++++++ "You are WRONG, you ol' brass-breasted fascist poop!" -- Bloom County
