When you execute a
beat on a percussion instrument, the movement can be used to modify
the consciousness and the consciousness to modify the movement as
well. That is to say to obtain a clean and powerful sound you have
to pay attention to the arms, fingers and hands movements and where
the impulse to beat the instrument comes from. Thatís why the
teacher has to guide the pupil though the knowledge of his or her
own loco motional potential through instructions associated to
movements. Besides the teacher offers new alternatives to improve he
pupil ability. The suggestions that are registered by the brain are
used to modify not appropriate execution patterns acquired by the
pupil who saw other musician playing and wants to imitate them. This
leads to a defective technique. The experience acquired during the
different stages of learning are learnt by heart modifying habit and
creating new movement patterns. The benefits that you obtain through
an appropriate execution psychology are:
Avoiding the pain changing bad movement habits.
Eliminate the contraction and shortening of our muscles, offering
freedom to the movements.
Acquisition of a better knowledge of sensations starting from
muscles, skeleton, organs and biological functions.
Discovery of the application of gravity laws and the better use of
skeleton as a structure of movements
Learning to focalize the attention on how we do or make things and
not only on the achievement of our aims but in the present
Discovery of the pleasure of movement taking consciousness of the
possibilities and abilities we donít usually use.
Improving of the posture, movement in a state of relaxation and
Acquisition of flexibility, coordination and efficiency on
Reduction of the physical, emotional and mental tension and
Increase of the neuromuscular performance
Development of the attention, sensibility and coordination.
Increase the body control by showing the possibilities of its
expression acting with mental flexibility, spontaneity, imagination
Communicate to their musicians through musical and body language,
using time and space tools and emotional and affective ones too.
Being able to perceive or receive external stimulus reacting and
responding with different personality aspects.
In conclusion this method wants to obtain an organized body to move
efficiently with little effort improving the conciousness of the
motional sensorial system instead of using the muscles power.
