A method for listening
A method for listening that I've been giving my music tech. students.
- Find a good listening space
- Listen without distractions
- Listen to the entire piece, without stopping
- Take notes, but only after listening through the piece. Don't get distracted by taking notes while listening.
- Make a repertoire of pieces that you know well.
And here is some of the music I've been forcing them to listen to: http://open.spotify.com/user/olanormal/playlist/4blqHX4Qvo16m38EmmL5Se
