WHAT DOES MUSIC GIVE TO YOU?

Choosing the subject and how learning is always a subject of much debate in each family. Many programs for children and sports activities such as football, volleyball, swimming .. all aim to develop children. But we forget about what makes a child's soul, that is music. You have difficulty in how your child can grow healthy, active, have reason and deep thinking as scientists around the world. How to write meaningful words when children do not know how to hold the pen. That's why experts encourage parents let to listening to music while the babe in the womb. Finger power and ingenuity are the first steps for a child to access the music by touching, hearing, making children think logically, knowingly organizing the music, making music a child. Romantic, meticulous but still very strong in everything. Parents' time is not enough to be able to do the same things with their children, music is the most effective medicine so that babies can be easily absorbed and socialized. .

EXAM DATE 2020

Practice done before the examination is important. The pointers below, curated by one of our examinees who has been through all ABRSM exams, give you and your child legitimate advice to work with. 1. As mentioned above, the 3 piano pieces form more than 60% of the grading. It is thus advisable for your child to select the ones that they feel the most comfortable practising with. 2. Make practising a routine - Clock in 30 minutes every day and set 15 minutes for each component, alternating between components: for example, piano pieces and scales, or piano pieces and sight-reading. 3. Have your child train with a metronome to maintain their tempo consistency through their pieces, scales & arpeggios, and sight-reading. 4. For sight reading, your child should take a quick glance at the piece first. Note the tempo for the said piece and make a mental mark on the various musical instructions littered throughout – forte, slur, crescendo, diminuendo, etc. Following that, play through the whole section without stopping. This will train them to complete the piece regardless of the mistakes made while playing - stopping is a markdown if it happens during the actual examination. 5. For the aural exam, the questions will be set according to the grade of the exam. Read theory books and see what each grade caters to and what range of things your child can expect to be tested on. 6. If possible, head together with your child to the test centre a few weeks prior to the exam and do a test-run with the designated piano. Let their fingers get used to the keyboard that they will be playing. Each piano is crafted differently, hence it is best to head for a test-run

Piano Music for Studying, Concentrating

This is the ultimate study music playlist for concentrating, focusing, and thinking. This is a collection of almost all the piano music for studying to help concentration and focus I have written so far. The playlist include study music that I have composed since 2010-2014. This is 4 years in the making. As many of you know, I have also been in medical school for the last 4 years as well. Thus, as I listen to this playlist, I see my experiences, studies, cramming time, tests and exam anxieties, all-nighters, etc. all flash before my eyes. For those of you who have been following me through this journey and have kept up with this channel, I would love to hear stories of what these pieces trigger in your memories.
