FeaturedWhy everyone should learn music (part II)

As the player progresses the fun grows since it's possible to take numerous options. Furthermore, the organism gets better with the practice and the sensation of partial control arrives sooner or later. When others cook the result could be fantastic but here there's the possibility of tailoring specific tastes to create the most adequate mixture for personal preferences.

The digital world brings really easy applications to compose and make your own music. Even professional software normally follows standard procedures to sequence music and they aren't difficult. With a MIDI (standard for digital devices) keyboard and a sampler the user has access to hundreds of free libraries with crazy amounts of sounds. A MIDI keyboard is the only required inversion most of the time in general because the sequencer, samplers and other tools are free to download in Internet. The price varies but they aren't expensive for instance in comparison with the computer. Let's say less than a hundred for sure some of them. A sound card with low latency drivers is also essential to avoid the silence between the push in the keyboard and the sound. It could be bundled with the motherboard, or also purchased —a basic one— for an alike price.

Once you know a bit the language and have some practice, to play with others is another source of experiences and also could help to advance. The road is there for every adventure, so it's not the first that ends playing in front of massive crowds and creating big parties.

As we said yesterday, music constitutes a natural ability to everyone since it appears in the mind and it produces an effect, say then psychologically. If a person can think, can play music; it only requires to train the brain to substitute words for music and elaborate a logical dialogue although this is usually done by the brain automatically. The interesting part is that none creates the same one so there's time to discover your own.

The advice for newcomers has to be with practice, as it's the most important aspect because without it the results cannot come by themselves. First of all if the work is too intense, seen as an obligation and the person doesn't enjoy the journey there are chances to forget the activity forever as it happens numerous times. Some children see music as a complex duty, because it's each week with a schedule like the History Class and the exercises are difficult. It's true that the pressure can produce results but it's too risky in this area and it exerts an unwanted force. The key from our perspective is to search for fun like in a game, and it works because it's very similar from the beginning toward the experience. This should create the intention of playing instead of doing other activities, and the time flies daily.

Who plays music should also seek understanding to learn the structure of different styles and this has the name of musical theory. To know modes is fundamental, think in even the piano was created with modal music in mind. Seven white keys, seven modes.

Theory and practice and you will be playing and enjoying music in some time. Incredibly ahead of watching TV or doing other things that doesn't produce nothing!
