How to keep musicians in a rock band?

Many leaders of rock groups cannot understand why the musicians in their collective are delayed for long. It would seem that this is the person with whom you will work all your life. But time passes, and your guitarist or vocalist leaves the group. Someone explains their departure as a lack of time or children. And someone doesn’t explain anything at all and just stops attending rehearsals. If this happens for the first time, then you can just find a replacement for the musician and not think about anything. But if such withdrawals are repeated, then it is worth thinking about the reasons.

From personal experience I can say that they can be both in the leader of the group, and in the musicians themselves. Here are a few options that I have come across repeatedly. Not a leader It happens that a musician who has gathered a group is a talented composer and poet. He has a lot of material and there is always something to work on. But by nature he is not a leader. Therefore, they generally do not perceive him as the leader of the group, argue with him and prevent him from moving forward. Very often such people are used to achieve their goals. For example, a bass player is required in a group, but you just can’t find it. Continue reading

Tchaikovsky’s works for children

Petya, Petya, how could you! Exchange jurisprudence for a pipe! – the angry uncle of a negligent nephew, who quit the service of a titular adviser in the Ministry of Justice for the sake of serving Eutherpe, the patroness of music, was chastising with such words. And the name of his nephew was Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. And today, when the music of Pyotr Ilyich is known to the whole world, when international competitions are held to them. Tchaikovsky, in which academic musicians from all countries take part, it can be argued that it was not in vain that Petya abandoned jurisprudence. In the work of Pyotr Ilyich there are many serious works that won him worldwide fame, but he also wrote music that was understandable and accessible to children. Tchaikovsky’s works for children are familiar to many from early childhood. Who has not heard the song “The grass is green”? – She was hummed and hummed by many, often without suspecting that the music belongs to Tchaikovsky. Continue reading

YOUNG MOZART AND MUSIC SCHOOL PUPILS: FRIENDSHIP THROUGH THE AGE

Wolfgang Mozart gave us not only his great music, but also opened for us (as Columbus opened the way to America) the path to the heights of musical excellence from unusually early childhood. The world does not yet know another such luminous music, who showed his talent at such an early age. Triumphal Prodigy. The phenomenon of bright children’s talent. Young Wolfgang sends us a signal from his 18th century: “Do not be afraid, my young friends, go ahead. Young years are not a barrier … I know that for sure. We young are capable of many things that adults don’t even know about. ” Mozart openly shares the secret of his phenomenal success: he found three golden keys that could open the way to the temple of Music. These keys are (1) heroic perseverance in achieving the goal, (2) skill and (3) the presence of a good pilot nearby, which will help to enter the world of music. Mozart had such a pilot as his father *, an excellent musician and gifted teacher. About him, the boy respectfully said: “After God, only dad.” Wolfgang was an obedient son. The music teacher and your parents will show you the path to success. Follow their instructions and, perhaps, you will be able to overcome gravity … Young Mozart could not even imagine that after 250 years we, modern boys and girls, will enjoy the wonderful world of animation, explode our imagination in 7D cinemas, immerse ourselves in the world of computer games … Continue reading
