Stress levels arise when we struggle to focus. When we struggle to focus we start feeling we will fail to complete the task. When we are afraid our thinking becomes less efficient. All this points towards failure.
We can struggle to focus due to a number of reasons, but one of the main ones is that we have to overcome the fear of leaving some other important activities behind or on stand-by. At this point, developing our skills depends on improving our decision-taking skills.
Playing piano relies mainly on learning how to manage several simultaneous streams of information. That’s why, as pianists, we just learn to deal with them from scratch.
The fabulous thing is that you actually learn to enjoy managing and “surfing” through all these different waves of information. Not in a painful way but enjoying the possibility of varying the subjects and knowing that everything is under control.
Any good musician learns how to make friends with the concept of “imminence”
When we play we can’t go back on our steps, we can’t review mistakes, we just need to organise our time so we deliver effectively in one go.
That’s why we learn how to study efficiently, how to optimize each and every second in order to guarantee the success of our performance.
Playing piano is a mixture of heavy planning and quality improvisation.
Have you ever been presented with a sudden problem that needs immediate solving? This happens constantly while you play, but adding to that is the fact that several other things are instantaneously affected by your very recent decision.
The nature of music pushes us to learn how to make understandably wise decisions under pressure. But, as it happens on a regular basis, we also develop the habit of solving problems on the go without stressing about it.
You learn to how select what to focus on wisely and to schedule other tasks so you can touch base and develop them simultaneously.
Playing the piano is one of the most special skills a person can learn. It is remarkable that, even compared to other musical instruments, piano is by far the most complex one to learn.
