    Default To be a good musician learn to listen

    I often tell my students that one of the most important things they can do to become better musicians is to listen. Listen to all kinds of music, listen to different opinions about music, listen to what the artist is trying to say through his instrument and listen to what each instrument is doing in a song. instrument klingeltone

    Listening isnít just about enjoying the beat or the melody, but itís hearing the role of each instrument. Itís hearing that faint horn that resounds at the climax of the chorus, or that lead lick that is repeated throughout the whole song.

    At university there was a subject called Aural and General Musicianship. This basically taught us how to train our ears and how to listen to music, how to follow instrumentation, key changes, note intervals etc. Through this training I learned to appreciate all types of music. I learned that even a 3 chord song can have so much going on. Each instrument told a different part of the story of the song, that might seemed lost in the whole mix of instruments, but if it were not there something would be missing.

    Listening is such a key element in becoming a proficient musician, Whether you play the guitar, piano, drums, bass or even sing, training your ear to listen to all parts of the music is one of the mist important things you can do.

    So next time you are listening to a song, pay a little more attention and see if you can pick out what instruments are being played, the melody or tune of each instrument and how often they are played within a song. I promise you a whole new world of music will open up to you.

    To be a good musician the thing that you have to do is practice, only an adequate practice of your skills and talent would be able to take you to the position of the best musician.
    And develop your existing skill and talents you have to learn more and more and for that purpose, you have to listen to new pieces of music every day and then try to follow their traits and discover how this music would be made more prefect.
    Only practice like this would make you perfect. This all are generic my opinions but still, you think you would check out the views of the experts through this blog
