Expert musicians possess more than high levels of technical proficiency. Young music students on the path to expertise must develop skills in chunking, motor programming and monitoring of musical patterns while, concurrently, using performance of music to create a high quality musical mental map. Through lecture and performance demonstration, the session will examine strategies for teaching your students to convert a series of â€œtonesâ€ into meaningful mental representations accessible for sight-reading, music memorization and as a foundation for expressive interpretation.
