DEVELOPING MUSICAL SKILL

PRESENTED BY MICHAEL GRIFFIN

It’s a simple connection but a powerful one!

The internal drive required to pursue an activity relies heavily on the greatest of all motivators – making progress. For musical progress, nothing is as important as the quality and the quantity of practice time. Specialist in fostering intrinsic motivation environments and expert achievement, Michael Griffin, will equip students, adult learners, and parents with the methods and mindset required to maximise the prospect of learning music enjoyably and successfully.

This inspiring and interactive presentation will focus on:

  • Repetition (blocked, variable and spaced, brain myelination)

  • Chunking (the brain looks to recognise patterns, why theory matters, memory)

  • Slow practice (the brain’s learning preference)

  • The quantity of experts (Ericsson’s violinists)

  • And of course, the core importance of cultivating a growth mindset.
