How to Learn - An outstanding presentation
« on: January 12, 2020, 11:01:11 AM »
For those you with kids in middle/school or going to college, there is an outstanding presentation by a fellow board member (boilermaker75). The best 20 minutes you can spend on improving study skills.

Thanks for a nice reinforcement of a skill I've been working on recently.

I've found that memory can be superficial or it can be deep.

I can usually memorize a musical piece fairly quickly but have found that when I play it in a performance environment,
recital or jury, there are issues with recall.

I've been focusing on learning things quickly instead of learning them deeply. Fortunately, I've been able to develop
enough composure to play through mistakes while maintaining tempo.

Over the semester break, I read a book called the Musicians Way & the author spent time discussing
the subject of superficial vs deep learning.

It's just as your video outlines.

---

Goal - Play a piece from memory under stressful conditions.

Focus - Learn a phrase at a time. For difficult passages, concentrate on a single measure at a time within the piece.

Feedback - Get instructor guidance on articulation & making improvements in dynamics & expression.

Comfort zone - gradually increase the tempo & try to read while playing instead of just playing from memory.

---

I highly recommend music, and specifically performance, to anyone interested in improving memory skills.
Performance can be simply playing for / with family & friends & it adds stress which tests your memory.

Reminds me of NBA players and shooting the ball. In practice some of these guys put away shots with 95+% accuracy, in game conditions this drops significantly. Occurs even for un-defended shots such as free throws.

They are constantly devising methods to better transfer practice knowledge to game time situations, i.e. 'meaningful practice'.

Exactly.

It's largely because we're worried about making a mistake & disappointing an audience.

When a player focuses instead on the enjoyment of the game, their performance will flow & they'll easily adapt when mistakes are made.

Few people in the audience will even notice small errors.

edit: do it for your own enjoyment & anyone watching will come along for the ride.

I'm going to watch this video again this afternoon.

For those of you with kids, the most important thing you can do is instill a growth mindset, which I discuss in part 5.

Here's Drew Brees doing that on national TV when he tells his kids "You can accomplish anything in life if
you are willing to work for it."
