The CLASP In Conversation With Stephanie Burns – Sunday 2nd May at 7pm (BST)

 

 

 

Two themes: Memorisation and Improvement

As musicians mature in their playing abilities and begin to perform, many will maintain a genuine desire to continuously improve their playing skills. But over time it seems their practice no longer leads to the changes they are striving for. Many players have simply never been taught to practice in a way that causes fundamental changes in the skills related to higher quality playing.

As an existing player, you will have nutted out a method for memorising music. For some, this skill seems easier than for others. Simply because some players have been taught, or stumbled upon, a more efficient strategy, even if they cannot articulate that strategy. In this presentation we’ll explore the strategies that most efficiently lead to memorising tunes. And, doing so in a way that is not only fast, but creates confidence, knowing you KNOW the tune.

Bio

Stephanie Burns, Ph.D.

Stef has devoted much of her career studying human behaviour with a keen focus on all things to do with improving how people learn. Her work is ground-breaking in how we think about what is possible, and students who have used her work have gone on to be much better at whatever they were trying to be better at.

She was asked to apply her understanding of learning effectiveness to help musicians, new and seasoned, to overcome hurdles in both practice and their performances. She is not new to the music or the music teacher scene, but she is relatively new to our pipe band world having done her first presentations for us in early 2014. Her presentations have been delivered numerous times to bands and summer schools in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the U.S. and Germany. She runs annual events for Piping Hot Summer Drummer in BC, Canada. She studies with Steven McWhirter.
