As part of its training plan for 2021, Ideias do Levante – Cultural Association of Lagoa (Algarve), in partnership with the Municipality of Lagoa, will organize, on April 18, 2021, from 15:00-17:00, a workshop entitled “Age at learning a musical instrument: Experiences, evolution, performance and opportunities”, guided by Adriana Estrela, aimed at musicians, students, teachers, parents and all those interested in the theme.
It is intended to open a space for reflection on the following topics:
– What are the differences, advantages and disadvantages, challenges, for those who start learning a musical instrument, for example, at the age of four and those who start at a more advanced age?
– The moment and the way in which a musical instrument appears in our life, the decision, the choice, influences and results;
– The influence and role of teachers in the students’ journey when learning a musical instrument at different stages of life.
In the trainer’s own experience, as a cellist and also a cello teacher, of having started to learn a musical instrument when she was 16, she aims to share not only her own experience and research in different areas and stages but also to get to know other experiences and opinions.
Students who start learning at an advanced age face very different challenges than students who start at 4 or 5 years of age. In this workshop Adriana Estrela identifies these differences, as well as the means to overcome them.
The trainer will address how these students can face the challenges and determine the steps necessary to deal with a specific repertoire.
Registration and participation in this workshop is free of charge.
