Dr. Wolff - Exercises for music majors

Entering college, music majors have a cumulative practice count of more than 10000 hours. But practice is not necessarily efficient - often, tightness of muscles and even pain are experienced due to repetitive practice patterns and long hours of playing.

In this course, each musician will establish his/her own warming- up routine, which can be done prior to practice in just 2 minutes. Thus, the body is fully prepared for practicing. The warm-up is suitable for the last minutes prior to entering the stage  - as a quasi "last-minute check list" for both brain and body.

In addition, the most effective learning and practicing strategies are introduced (which also can be used outside playing one's instrument!). Namely, chunking, pattern analysis, structuring phrases using meta-cognitive techniques and the structuring of practice sessions is brought to attention. For each instrument, the pertinent details of anatomy and physiology, the role of nutrition and sleep and the succession of activity and rest are discussed. A number of motor exercises are learned, which help to regenerate better after practice.

The combination of practicing strategies leads to a synthesis of artistic and physiologic aspects, so the most detailed and vivid representation of the piece played can be "saved" on the hard disc - our brain. Using all strategies together helps to avoid stage anxiety, feeling at ease while playing becomes a central aspect of practice and playing.
