A few years ago I noticed I was doing something odd. When I was too slow to turn a page, I simply made up my own music until I was able to turn the page. I did know what the music sounded like on the next page but what I played was an improvisation that worked OK, not the printed music.
No big deal or harm done. Then, I would just started to improvise for no reason and I had no idea what such music looked like on paper.
I guess that is sort of a learning curve but I am in awe of the mental role that takes place. Four years ago I would swear that could never happen.
As a generalization I think the violin may require the greatest mental demands.
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
Hey Oliver...that is very cool. All these things mentioned here, well I may not be able to try them yet..(ha ha.including turning a page..ha ha)... but that is a cool idea...a little improv practice between pages.
I have had a piece that I work on often...and a few times I did something wrong and I was able to not stop and get all flustered, I was able to just kind of make a "note, sound " and keep going. As I was doing it, I thought.. "a non player may never have caught that."
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
