The best age and conditions for learning to play violin
Like a child's early intellectual development, like academic work that can develop into a professional violinist, it must begin early. Better sooner than later. But there are still different opinions about when is best time to start. Some foreign educators claim that sooner better, and put forward saying of "zero parenting" and "prenatal parenting", that is, when child is just born at zero age, or even when mother is pregnant, start listening to music, and then start listening music when child is two or three years old. He started playing violin when he was little. The edifying environment makes children learn music as easily as they learn language of their native city. Subconscious cultivation is said to be basis for development. It makes sense.
I have this experience in practice: listening to beautiful music for pregnant mothers and babies is good for their mood and physical development, as well as for awakening children's interest and acceptance of music. It should be noted that you should not listen to exciting music for them, not to mention using a high volume. Be sure to choose soft, sweet, quiet and cheerful pieces, and volume should be lower.
The age at which piano lessons begin can vary from person to person. Generally speaking, at age of two or three years, ability of self-control is still weak, it is difficult to concentrate, hands are tender, it is possible to play a toy violin instead of formally learning to play violin. From point of view of intellectual development of children, first leap begins at age of four or five years, that is, transition from "involuntary attention" to "deliberate attention". can start.
When you start learning piano at this age, you don't have to progress quickly, but you have to learn it right way. I deeply understand in practice that a child is a sheet of blank paper that is easy to draw. latest and most beautiful photos. As long as we lovingly guide them to right path, they will follow it with a natural and intelligent feeling. For example, a relaxed bow, after they slowly find this feeling, becomes hard, like building up on body, and they do not know what tension is. Children at age of four or five do not progress as quickly as children at age of six or seven, but their foundation will be stronger. After six or seven years, a person's intellect is significantly developed. At this time, relatively quickly, you can start learning to play piano. If you work hard, it's not too late to learn how to play piano.
In terms of developing intellect and organizing students' study time, I think it's best to start learning piano one or two years before entering elementary school. Children who have learned to play piano will feel that their homework is very easy when they enter elementary school. they do not feel that there is a heavierloe burden.
What are best conditions for teaching children to play piano? As a goal of increasing cultural literacy of generation, it should be said that every child has conditions to learn to play piano, just like every child can learn language of his hometown.
As for whether it can be related to professional training and whether she can develop into a violinist, then she must be combined with excellent talent and good teaching.
Parents often ask, "Is my child a genius?" I think that quality and ability of children to learn to play piano depends on many factors. /p>
No talent, not accurate enough.
The hand is one of conditions. It is better to be slender, broad, supple and resilient, not too hard and not too soft, not sweaty hands, fingers relatively uniform in length, not too short and not bent to sides. However, there is no shortage of violinists with not very good hands.
Hearing is more important. Violin playing requires fine tuning and pitch discrimination. Good ears are indispensable. Hearing is very innate and at same time it can be trained. Some children have tonal deafness at beginning because they have listened to music and sung too little and have not fixed concept of intonation at all. After training, they can also master intonation well after enlightenment.
Rhythm is very important. Rhythm in music is like human bones; without rhythm and rhyme, music falls apart.
Memory is also important.
But among all conditions, most important are love of music, a good sense of music and a creative spirit. Since we are not artisans, playing violin is not a purely technical “work”, but an art, and sound it makes must have a driving force. Children with a musical sense will themselves strive for beautiful sound and breath of music, and they will sing with their hearts. Even a small melody can touch people's hearts. His fascination with music will also contribute to dissatisfaction with his own technologies, thus contributing to their improvement.
The musical flair is truly genius, but it's a "gold mine buried in rock" that teachers and parents have to dig up together. This is a laborious process, without digging treasures cannot be found. And how many times practice has taught me: after excavations, how many musical talents of students have surpassed my initial assessment! . Our teachers always consider it an important part of teaching to inspire and develop a sense of music in students.
The last point is diligence. A child with ambition, perseverance, willingness to use his brain and hard work can overcome all obstacles in front of him and create what he wants to do with his own hands. In addition to mind, a "non-intellectual" character is needed here. Hard work is one of them. Don't give up until you reach your goal. This is not a simple "knowledge", but a kind of expression of character. It seems invisible, no, but all achievements of all people in world areeat from him. You can create unimaginable brilliant achievements.
In terms of hobbies, there is no limit to age at which you can start learning to play violin, it can be sooner or later, no matter how old you are. Many adults learn to play piano and do well. Even elderly can learn to play violin, entertain themselves, move their hands and head, which is very helpful in preventing slow thinking and ensuring physical and mental health. Active exercise methods will have better results.
