IMPROVE YOUR BASS PLAYING WITH A GOOD DAILY SCHEDULE BY ANDREA FASCETTI

HI MY BASS FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES!

HOPE THAT EVERYTHING’S COOL FOR YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR POSITIVE RESPONSE ABOUT THE EAR TRAINING EXERCISES. THE LAST LESSON WAS THE LAST WORK CONCERNING THIS ARGUMENT. PLEASE INSERT THIS STUFF INTO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE, AND I’M SURE YOU’LL BE HAPPY WITH YOUR MUSIC.

TODAY, I’M GOING TO TALK A NEW ARGUMENT, THAT IS PRIMARY FOR MUSIC STUDYING: THE DAILY SCHEDULE!

THIS IS THE FIRST PROBLEM I FOUND WITH MY STUDENTS (THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO GIFTED BASSIST ALESSIO PANGALLO FOR  SUGGESTING THIS SUBJECT!) EVERY STUDENT I MEET TELLS ME THE SAME OLD STORY, I HAVE NO TIME TO PRACTICE—I’M TOO BUSY—ETC, ETC.

I KNOW THAT PRACTICING IS REALLY HARD. I THINK THAT MANY OF US PREFER TO DO ANYTHING INSTEAD OF PRACTICING EXERCISES. IT’S NORMAL. I BELIEVE THAT IT’S IN HUMAN NATURE. BUT I’M AN OPTIMIST!  USING A GOOD DAILY SCHEDULE CAN CHANGE THIS DIRECTION!

HERE’S MY SUGGESTION: TRY TO PRACTICE 10 MINUTES, THEN STOP FOR 2 MINUTES, THEN PRACTICE 10 MORE MINUTES—THEN STOP 2 MINUTES.

DURING THE BREAKS, RELAX YOURSELF OR TAKE A LITTLE WALK AND DON’T THINK TOO MUCH ABOUT THE MUSIC! THIS ROUTINE HELPS YOU TO FIGHT BOREDOM. I FOUND THIS TO BE A VERY GOOD APPROACH.

ANOTHER TRICK IS WRITING ON A PAPER ALL TOPICS YOU WANT TO PRACTICE (SO YOU’RE SURE TO DO EVERYTHING) AND MARK WITH A PENCIL EVERYTHING YOU DO. DO THIS AT LEAST 20 DAYS AND YOUR MIND WILL BECOME CONFIDENT WITH THIS NEW APPROACH.

HERE’S A LAST TRICK, AND IT MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NO TIME TO PRACTICE. WHEN YOU’RE UP IN THE MORNING, STUDY AT LEAST 30 MINUTES. THEN IF YOU HAVE A BREAK AFTER OR BEFORE LUNCH, TRY TO PRACTICE ANOTHER 20 – 30 MINUTES. THEN IN THE EVENING, YOU CAN STUDY ANOTHER HALF AN HOUR. IF YOU NOTICE YOU’RE PRACTICING AN HOUR AND A HALF—THAT’S GREAT. AND YOU THOUGHT YOU’DE HAVE NO TIME TO PRACTICE!

AS USUAL, I KNOW IT’S REALLY HARD TO DO, BUT IF YOU TRY YOU’LL DISCOVER THE POWER OF THIS DAILY SCHEDULE. OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN FIT THIS METHOD TO YOURSELF, SO YOU CAN PRACTICE 10 MINUTES A DAY OR 12 HOURS A DAYJ OR DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE.

I THINK THAT YOU’LL HAVE MORE FUN WITH BASS IF YOU TRY TO GIVE IT SOME WELL PLANNED MINUTES OF YOUR DAY.

SEE YOU

CIAO
