Methods of Perfecting/Practicing a Piece

Hi Roland! Thanks so much for doing this. I know you've probably been given tremendous amounts of praise, but we all mean it. Your works are both inspiring and energizing to listen to and play. :D

I was just wondering, what are your own methods of perfecting or practicing pieces? How do you truly perfect them to an incredibly high performance standard?

Thanks so much!
Ben

Hi Ben,

Tanks a lot for your kind note, I do appreciate.

Thanks so much for doing this. I know you've probably been given tremendous amounts of praise, but we all mean it. Your works are both inspiring and energizing to listen to and play. :D

Merci.

Should I forget the decades I dedicated to guitar studying and tell you how I'd try to perfect these pieces today only ? :wink:
Ok let's try then to "forget" my many years as a student and let me tell you that, when polishing a piece (old or recent, by another composer or one of my stuffs) I definitely transform myself in a kind of ultra-demanding tough & mean guy-animal with elephant ears. And this very monster would be crazily meticulous as well.
So, more seriously (what I previously mentioned is 100% true though, in spite of the funny image) I strongly recommand you to focus like you never did on the piece you're working on, on every tiny "so called" details met all through the score, to play on an a terrifically well tuned guitar, to reach what you're really aiming to (tone, dynamics, perfection in tempo - didn't say speed ! -, fluidity, clearness, clarity, roundness, "sqeeklyness", emocional and so many additional stuffs the body of this message won't let me the opportunity nor the room to write down till the end :wink: .

Your question's tricky my friend. I never saw you and you want me to tell you, right away, how to perfect a piece "to an incredibly high performance standard".
Sometimes I wish I were a wizz, really. But I'm unfortunately not.
Nevertheless I did my very best by answering to you the way I did today, November 24th, 2010 :wink:


Be well and happy in your music.


Friendly.


Roland Dyens


Thanks so much!
Ben
