Tengo que reconocer que, a veces, escuchar música y sin nada que ver es bastante aburrido. En ese caso, no estaría mal tener algún videoclip o herramienta que nos mostrara imágenes relacionadas. Justo...
Anna-Maria Hefele, a musician based in Munich, has an unusual talent. She can sing two notes at once. In the music world, it's known as polyphonic overtone singing, and it's believed that the practice originated and still endures in Mongolia.
Two of the early products from the Steinberg team’s efforts to develop new music notation software have been the advent of an open standard for music fonts, called the Standard Music Font Layout, or SMuFL, and the creation of its first compatible...
“ A new study suggests that learning to play a musical instrument helps improve the brain's ability to process language. That means music lessons could give kids from low-income communities a big boost.”
In addition to my music therapy sessions I have the absolute privilege of teaching adapted piano and guitar lessons to children and teens with special needs and different learning styles. People often ask – what does “adapted” lessons mean? Great question. It means provide adaptations and alternate ways for our clients or students to learn an instrument. It takes CREATIVITY!
Here are some creative adaptations I use for my piano lessons with children who may have attention deficit issues or learning differences:
1) Provide extra practice material
I use the Bastien series to teach piano. However, I find that it moved too quickly for some students. So I supplement by adding my own additional; practice sheets. For example, if the lesson is teaching notes C-G in treble clef often times there might only be one or two pages to allow the student to practice that before moving on to the bass clef notes C-G. So I go on Finale and print out short melodies to practice treble clef notes C-G. This way the student will have more opportunities to practice those notes without playing the same two pages in the book over and over.
2) Cover distracting pictures
I find some children’s piano books to be very distracting and the pages to be very “busy.” If it is overstimulating for me, I can only imagine what it feels like to the student . Oftentimes the pictures will lead the student into a tangent about that picture and have proven to be very distracting. So I often over up these pictures to create a nice, clean white page. This way the student can focus solely on the notes on the page rather than the pictures on the page.
