吉他

 

Lorne MacDonald

 

Instruments: Acoustic Guitar, 古典吉他, Electric Guitar,

Education: York University

Style:古典, 爵士樂, 民謠樂, 摇滚樂, 流行樂

Language: English

 

Lorne began studying guitar when he was 12 years old and I have been teaching since 2015. When he was a kid my favorite thing to do was to go to my guitar lessons and in my free time, playing rock and pop music on electric guitar. As he became older, he developed a passion for classical guitar. He began to study privately with renowned guitar virtuoso, RCM faculty member and examiner James Brown. With James, he became classically trained through the RCM examination system as well as in performance and Jazz improve. He learned that achieving the best grade possible in an RCM exam requires a very refined technique, strong articulation, attention to detail and knowledge of the history behind each piece. It is not about the quantity of the pieces you can play but the quality of how you can play them.

Although Lorne really enjoy performing, his true passion is teaching. My first step when meeting a new student is to acknowledge what they like and dislike and any goals they may have. Always trying to keep things as intriguing as possible, introducing new things that will hopefully spark the students interest.

如何准备钢琴考级 【教师及家长必看】

考前准备

学生学习钢琴到一定程度时,家长及学生都希望得到专家的评定,也就是俗称的“考级”,这时候,凡是专业的钢琴教师都要提前半年至一年左右,开始让学生为考级做准备。
但要注意的是,这些准备时间并不是指这半年到一年的时间只弹考级曲目,而是要通过练习其它乐曲提高技术技能。
在此期间,钢琴教师要根据考级教程的要求,针对学生的训练目的及特点,合理安排考级曲目。单纯的练习考级曲目,还远远达不到培养学生综合素质的目的,为此,专业教师还应根据考生学习的需要,有针对性地给予学生不同的辅助教材进行练习。

 

制定学习计划

在备考过程中,老师要有计划、有步骤地安排考生的学习进度,如下:

1、首先不要忽略基础训练,老师要不断地强调基本功的重要性并随时检查(如音阶部分);

2、面对一首新作品,首先要培养学生的视奏能力,然后按照由慢到快的方式练习,并学会克服乐谱上的技术难点,并注意各种速度、力度标记;

3、学会如何分句,如何表达乐曲的不同情感、风格,如何完整地演奏整首乐曲,最后如何把所有的考级曲目连贯起来演奏。
当考级曲目练好后,老师和家长要多给考生一个当众演奏的机会。老师可以把要参加考级的学生集中在一起,轮流把考级曲目完整地演奏一遍,然后进行考评,指出学生在演奏过程中应当注意的问题(包括演奏心态、临场可能出现的错误、演奏时断了如何接下去、以及台风等问题),家长还可邀请一些亲朋好友到家聆听孩子的演奏,提高他们的表演欲望,增加信心,以便考级时能很好发挥自己的水平。
还有,切忌给考生造成过大的心理压力!

 

考级结束后要善于总结问题

考生离开考场见到家长后,无论考得好坏,都要给予鼓励!

考级结果出来后,家长要认真阅读考官的评语,特别是针对考生学习中存在的问题,要仔细思考,哪些问题是老师经常提起而考生没有改正的,哪些问题老师根本就没有提及。

如果获得“优秀”,要鼓励学生继续努力,不要骄傲;

如果获“通过”,则希望他们对自己有更高的要求,下次争取“优秀”;

如果是“勉强通过”,家长和老师就要认真研究评语,找出原因,督促并鼓励学生克服不足,继续努力;

对于获得“不通过”的学生,家长和老师千万不要责怪学生,从目前的情况来看,除了不认真学习的学生外,多数获“不通过”学生的问题都存在于家长和老师之中:如果不是教师不称职,就是家长盲目追求高级别!要知道学习音乐也是和学习任何一门课程一样,要符合循序渐进的规则,注重基本功的练习,不要盲目追求进度跳级考试。对于“不通过”的学生,还要区别对待:

1、不用功的,要从思想上认识学习钢琴对开发智力的好处,每天练琴要像做作业一样完成任务;

2、有的考生学习比较努力,但没有通过,这就需要家长认真思考寻找原因有针对性地因势利导了。
最后,希望每一位准备考级的家长真正从孩子存在的问题着手,不要盲目追求级别,并学会通过考级逐渐提高学生的音乐素养与技巧。
