well, every composition is by definition a piece. Using the term piece is quite correct, much more than calling everything "song". So you got that right.

Did Bach create this? The piece yes, the title, no. The original title is in italian I believe, but it is not important. They are better well known in today's music world as "cello suites".

Would people understand what you mean? We, classical listeners, yes. Others, I doubt.

If you want the basics I recommend these 2 free courses

Wanted to learn about classical music so I started this on Coursera at a [5]. It is in equal parts hilarious, cringey, sweet-sounding, and educational!

I'm no expert at this, but I would say if you really wanted to study music thoroughly you should pursue a major in music. For a more casual study, I'm sure there are classical music appreciation courses and channels online and on Youtube. For example, this one looks promising (https://www.coursera.org/learn/introclassicalmusic). I also like to listen to podcasts like Sticky Notes and That Classical Podcast. You should also look at r/classicalmusic. Hope that helps!

Why do some conductors totter their body or grimace?

From this satiric Youtube video, I focus on pianists who aren't beating any rhythm.

>https://www.coursera.org/learn/introclassicalmusic/lecture/Ab36b/14-1-piano-concerto-in-d-minor

>During Beethoven's Piano Concerto ("PC") #5 op. 73:

>Friedrich Gulda no more than whirls his right arm while standing. He then stands and jabs and jives at 2 min 6 s.

>András Schiff flutters his left arm, without beating the rhythm.

>In Mozart's PC #21, K. 595, Chad Heltzel twirls both his arms.

>In Rachamninoff's PC #3, Op. 30, Mvt. 1, Andrei Gavrilov flails his wrists above his head. Again at 1 min 12 s, 2 m 1 s, 2 m 24 s.

Prof. Craig Wright at 9 min 54 s of Video 14.1 states of Mitsuko Uchida (also in the video overhead):

>She's not so much beating a beat pattern, but simply emoting [the transcript mistakes this as 'moding'] the music to the orchestra.

But why such overwrought, wacky, facial and body bustle? The orchestral musicians don't need them. Don't they look too overblown and unclear to signify anything to laypeople?

I think the best way to listen to classical music, and by the way that's a really gargantuan task, is to start learning it - it is honestly like a language.

I would imagine the best way to get start writing about getting involved in your local scene, is to start being part of the local scene. I applaud people like yourself who have this desire to be part of the local scene, because I think it makes jumpstarting a music career so much easier. With that said, I have some suggestions that hopefully will help.

First, I think you're starting great by documenting your journey to create your first album.

Since you want your next blog post to be a guide on how to get involved in your local scene, if you don't have that experience yet, create a pre-cursor article talking about how you don't know how to do that yet, but as an artist you're figuring it out.

Talk about the things you plan to do to become part of the local scene, why you've started to get back into it, etc. This can be a series, like part 1, part 2, etc.

Maybe, it'll be in part 2 where you start talking about the first thing you've done to be get involved in the local scene, how long it took, etc. Bring people along for the experience.

I think there's stuff you can do with social media to have people join in on the experience and build your fanbase, but it might be better sticking with the website to start. It's up to you really with how far you plan to take things.

I saw on your music bucket list, doing an open mic night is listed #5.

Now, I don't know NYC or the NY area at all, but I asked my world traveled friend Google, and it listed a bunch of places you might want to contact or look into so you can cross that off your list, and start building your fanbase for your album.

Even if you just do covers and not originals, it'll help. Here's the link I found https://www.nyc.com/best-of-new-york/best_open_mic_nights_in_new_york.2159/42/

I don't know your genre or style of music you plan to do, but I did see you write more about hip-hop and R&B music. If you plan to do the same or similar style, it looks like the Nuyorican Poets Cafe is one of the places to be to get involved with. Here's the link to them I found: https://www.nuyorican.org/hip-hop/

If you're finding it tough to get into the local scene yourself, or you're just not feeling ready, try reaching out to the producers, managers, artists, etc. via social media or email.

Tell them you're a new artist in the industry blogging your journey and you'd like to ask them ONE question about the music industry that would help aspiring artists and feature the interview on your site. Don't tell them the question until they reply back to you. Instead, tell them if they're interested in taking the time to answer the one question, reply back and you'll send it to them.

Now, it doesn't have to be 1 question, but it's a little different and it won't take up too much of their time. It might also get their interest piqued to reply back by you not telling them the question up front. Of course, it could be 3 questions or 10, but I'd say the less the better, just to be respectful of their time and yours.

It's up to you if you want to say this next part or not, but you could also mention since you're just getting started, you currently have about 60 readers per month, but you're growing. You think with the advice they have to offer, could really help upcoming artists.

Also, I don't know how accurate that number is regarding your site readership, because it was really hard to find some stats online in the normal places for your site, since you don't have a ton of visitors per month. So, the only place I could find numbers was https://mysitewealth.com/soundsdiscovered.com.html

That site says 2 unique per day, so I just multipled by 30 days.

Now, what's a good number of people to contact for this?

I'd say not to stop at 1 or 2, but 100 might be overwhelming. Just know you need to contact enough people to start getting traction. It should also be fun for you and it will check off some more boxes on your bucket list.

Another place to find venues to check out and artists to reach out to, try SonicBids: https://www.sonicbids.com/find-bands/?location_radius=1&location_geo=40.71427%2C-74.00597&location_str=New+York+City%2C+NY

You have to create a free account to their names and social media info.

If they're active on social and their following isn't so huge where they might actually reply back, hit them up. Heck, it might also be worth it for you to reach out to more well known artists you like, Gourdan Banks.

Typically, because most celebs and artists don't reply back, you can get your feet wet and get over any fears you might have about contacting people.

When you get responses replying back to you, ask them the question you want to ask and thank them.

A little hack you might want to also throw in after you get their answer to your question and their feature goes live on your site, ask them if they have any friends they know who would like a feature on your site.

This could be a good way to spread your name as a musician and grow your blog if they send friends your way.

Lastly, and just for fun: #27 on your Music Bucket List regarding becoming more familiar with classical artists, you might want to check out this course https://www.coursera.org/learn/introclassicalmusic

TLDR - become part of the local scene by going to open mics, music events and get contact information from social media and places like SonicBids to connect with artists, producers, managers, etc.

Edit: formatting and spelling.

I don't have many books to recommend, but at the moment I'm reading Alex Ross' The Rest is Noise which covers 20th century music. I really like this style of text, it's informative without being too impersonal as it often is the case in textbooks. I don't read a lot of this kind of non-fiction so I sound a bit naiive saying that, haha.

For online sources, I looooooove going to different orchestra websites and downloading their program books for upcoming concerts. Some orchestras publish some really good info, because they commission wonderful researchers and writers. I also think the information on the Kennedy Center website is wonderful as well (there are pages dedicated to specific composers and pieces): http://www.kennedy-center.org/ - Search Education -> Artists, and you'll need to navigate through living artists/musicians and composers, and sorting them via alphabet will make it easier. Here is the page on J.S. Bach, as an example.

Maybe your college course has already covered this, but Yale also offers an Introduction to Classical Music course for free on Coursera: https://www.coursera.org/learn/introclassicalmusic

There are some impressive open string duets out there for beginners. One of the Irish fiddle books I use with one of my students has a one-finger jig. Someone who is just trying to keep you busy but not moving forward with you could make it work.

Another option is to study something else to keep you motivated and engaged during what would otherwise be your practice time. There are tons of free music appreciation courses online that don't get into theory or technique at all but would help you when you get into more advanced pieces down the road because you will have a better understanding of the history and culture behind what you are playing.

I'll live the dream: beginner going on a sabbatical for 1 year; tips?

Hi everyone.

I'm going on a sabbatical starting soon and would like to improve my piano practice. I'll take ~1 year off of worldly duties to do a lot of stuff, including the piano practice.

  • Current situation:

    A year ago I started my journey on the piano studying by myself (I know...). I usually practice 30-60 minutes per day, and by that I mean reading and playing Alfred's piano book 1. First I try to get the correct notes for the appropriate duration then improve the musicality as a whole (?)(I'm being very honest here :) ). I've almost finished now, and did not do so on purpose in order not to "rush through" the book.

    I can see now that this approach is barely scalable: it almost feels like every new music is a new enterprise.

  • New situation:

    1. Lots of free time. Will be able to put 4 hours per day, maybe more depending on the results (in theory; in practice I find piano playing both rewarding and energy draining; or maybe is just life itself that drains me before my piano sessions? :) ).

      This also means I'm willing to dedicate myself to "peripheral" activities such as classical music instruction, etc.

    2. Possibly will be able to hire a teacher. However I would like to focus on the scenario in which this may not happen.

  • Goals:

    1. Be able to play classical piano correctly (always strive for the best) and have fun at it. I am not and aim not to be a professional player.

    2. Improve sight reading so that it feels like it is scalable.

    3. Be able to play most of Henle's books (see below;). I don't know if that's too ambitious given the new scenario.

  • Written materials that I already have:

    1. Alfred's Basic Adult All-in-One Course, Book 1, 2 and 3.

      Finishing book 1. Books 2 and 3 are not started.

    2. Hanon -- The Virtuoso Pianist in 60 Exercises.

      Recently bought. Not started.

    3. 2 Henle books.

      i. Grieg: At The Piano - 15 Well-Known Original Pieces.

      i. Mozart: At The Piano - 15 Well-Known Original Pieces In Progressive Order Of Difficluty.

      Recently bought. Not started.

    4. Fundamentals of Piano Practice: Third Edition.

      Recently bought. Not started.

  • Input that I kindly ask you:

    1. First off all, can you help me set up a new practice routine? Any tips? (e.g.: split your training into 3 x "1 hour" sessions, etc).

    2. Given the time availability which courses/roadmap do you see fit for my situation? (e.g.: course recommendations, more formal training (?), etc).

      I'm thinking about taking this course: Introduction to Classical Music. What do you think of it?

    3. Is it possible to play those Henle books by the end of the year?


Thanks for all the help so far!

Have you considered learning to play an instrument? You can totally learn about music without doing that. There are all sorts of free music appreciation videos you can watch. But there are also a lot of really cool play-along books of popular music in which you have an accompaniment track, so it's like you are part of it. I'll use this as an example since violin is my primary instrument:

​

https://www.halleonard.com/search/search.action?seriesfeature=VLNPLA

​

Find yourself a teacher open to such things if you go that route. I teach violin, viola, cello, and piano online if any of those interest you. And for just learning about music without learning to play it, I recommend these:

honestly I do this because I like music a lot and I put more work into this than any of you probably have with anything other than what your parents force you to do. If you don't like it -- cool -- it's literally meant for a completely different audience than the people commenting here; it's trap music guys. if you don't even smoke then save us both the trouble and don't give it a try

I don't see why you guys are so quick to shit on someones hard work. it isn't my goal to 'make it', it's my goal to finish a project for my own reasons, they're personal. If no one in the world likes my music, than I'll still be happy because I set my mind to something and am proud with how it turned out.

also stop pretending you guys are intj's. Ni doms would love the messy flow style because there's always a puzzle to solve with my music. If you can't find them then idk, practice actually listening to music first. https://www.coursera.org/learn/introclassicalmusic this is a good link that got me started years back. When you learn how to actually enjoy listening to music you'll find yourself in a great place. music is one of the last frontiers in self expression in a world that runs from its own shadow because no one can handle paranoia this day in age
