MUSIC GROUP – NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR MUSICIAN
Of course, the exchange of ideas, experience and communication with like-minded people in joint music-making is already a very significant advantage of playing in a musical group, which to this extent are not always available to solo artists who are constantly working on personal projects. However, there are several other advantages:
Ease of speaking to the public
Of course, you can speak to anyone who wants to speak and does not hesitate to do so. But psychologically, even the most unperturbed person, when speaking from the stage, is easier with allies behind him. What can we say about creative people striving for self-expression?
But in addition to removing psychological discomfort, being part of a musical group makes it possible to perform at various festivals and club venues, where a certain performance format is important.
Continuous self-education and creative growth
When they talk about an athlete, they must remember his coach. Music is, of course, not a sport, but an art, but here, too, without constant work on yourself anywhere. Personal motivation is always decisive, but having a group of like-minded people nearby, driven by one idea, the need for additional inspiration is not so strong. Therefore, playing in a musical group, it is easier to force yourself to cultivate and grow.
WHAT REQUIREMENTS ARE SUBMITTED TO THE EXECUTOR?
Knowledge of the seven notes of the octave is clearly not enough to perform together with a musical group. An important condition for the team to play, and its creative development will continue, is the musician’s compliance with certain requirements:
A desire to work
The desire to play, create something new, look for your sound or perform on stage in front of course, not a sport – something from this list must be important for the musician who came to the band. But the most important thing here was and remains the desire to work, learning the necessary games for days and practicing their skills to perfection.
The ability to create psychological comfort for yourself and other people
Musicians who have been playing together for a long time and who say that they are well-coordinated play spend a lot of time at joint rehearsals. Of course, communication and the creation of new musical masterpieces is impossible without conflict situations. Therefore, the ability to become the easiest person possible and create comfort not only for oneself, but also for another, is an extremely important skill.
Develop your musical personality
It is always worth remembering that all musicians are living people. So, they have their own manners and features of the game, their musical touches and such habits as speeding up and slowing down, increasing the strength of sound, and much more. In a collective game, all these nuances can both spoil the entire work and lead to disharmony, and make its sound better and more original. The middle ground, as always, is on the border of a refined game and the maintenance of its own musical personality. A musician who is fluent in this knowledge can really be considered a true professional.
Of course, that independent rehearsals do not exclude the game in a team, and collective creativity is not a guarantee of the success of a musician. However, musical groups were and remain interesting not only to the performers themselves, but also to music lovers.
