Re: Has anyone used Sythesia to *memorize* pieces?

The greatest component of memory, for a musician, is listening. You must listen to a piece you want to memorise - many, many times in some cases. When you are playing a piece, do not simply play it without paying attention, but actively listen with great concentration to what you are playing. Thank...

Re: Has anyone used Sythesia to *memorize* pieces?

I need synthesia to start playing a music. Then I also try not look at the screen when I know the piece. I look away, look again to see if I am in coordination.This is how it works for me and it is going good.

Re: Has anyone used Sythesia to *memorize* pieces?

I also think relying on sheet music is damaging to your development. In my opinion, People go to school and then go to work. Why should they go to school first? Why were we all not given job placements at get adapted to work environments one time? In this light, is school damaging to our developmen...

Re: Has anyone used Sythesia to *memorize* pieces?

I think people will love it when someone is playing music, they can see the falling notes on a projector. I think it gives many people a different view of music. According to some theory, we have multiple intelligences, some argue 8 others 12. None master all of these at the same time just like that...

Re: Has anyone used Sythesia to *memorize* pieces?

Nops, I started by myself from the videos of synthesia on youtube. I couldn't read sheets, found them too hard, and nowadays, I slightly can understand. I did not set goals in learning sheets after I saw synthesia but now I am trying to.

Re: Has anyone used Sythesia to *memorize* pieces?

I am playing a short classic music and one month is nothing compared to the one year goal i have set in which i need to know at least 3.

To me, synthesia is fine, I am learning through it.

Re: Sheets -note names

Thanks, To begin with, I had to develop daily practice habit. When I started, I would play on Fridays for 2-3 hours and then Sat, Sun same or more. Then I started playing every 2 weeks, for 4-5 hours when I played. Now I play 15-20 minutes, everyday. Yesterday I did not ( But i listened to the piece...

Re: Has anyone used Sythesia to *memorize* pieces?

Hi, I have been concentrating on only one music for the past month. I try beat by own score and continue use the visual aid. Then I also try not look at the screen and focus on my finger movements and sometimes when I miss, I press the keys and listen to what I am looking for. I do remember one musi...

Re: Sheets -note names

I think since you learnt from a young age, you already have a lot more of instincts and natural skills than some others. My nephews and nieces sometimes come and try play synthesia (Speed 10%) and they like it. I do not think they will be able to look at sheet notes and make a mapping. In the long r...

Re: Sheets -note names

Ok, When I think of C, I know which finger and key map together. When I look at the sheet note, I need a C that appears in my mind so that the mapping is made to the finger. Without that mapping, the sheet note picture would have been prefered on the keyboard. The sheet notes are not the pictures, I...

Re: Sheets -note names

There are some teachers who speak for their own benefit. When I started using synthesia, I didn't know about fingering and wasn't much aware of the options. I wanted to play one song. I went on youtube to see how others do it. Then I met a music teacher and I told him how I am learning through a sof...

Sheets -note names

Hi, To begin with, I am very glad with Synthesia, One thing that immediately went through my mind is : When the sheet notes are shown, the note names could appear besides the note on the sheet. That would be very easy to learn the note names as they appear on the sheet. This is very similar to the o...
