For instrumentalists PRACTISING and READING MUSIC is a two pronged activity.
1) To read the music notation.
2) to control the piece of wood, metal and/ or strings to make the sounds that correspond with what you need to read.
 
To improve both need repetition.
Oh! but its SO difficult sometimes to motivate yourself or, as a teacher, your pupils to do the necessary repetitions of sections that are found difficult. Repetitive practice will make the above mentioned activities into reflex actions; eventually developing the control allows musical interpretation. There is no substitution.
 
WebPractice:
  • Makes practice enjoyable with the option of accompaniments 24/ 7 therefore it’s likely that more practice will take place
  • More practice leads to more control over your instrument; repeat any bar or section at a variety of tempi
  • More control allows for more musical playing.
  • More musical success makes you feel good so you’ll want to do even more practice.
SIGHT READING
The secret of sight reading is knowing exactly where you are in the bar. That means counting. I suggest that the better you are the MORE you count NOT the less you count. With practice you can develop this awareness.
 
There should always be the awareness of the count in the back of your mind. That’s way a conductor move his baton in a particular way.(or should !)
To this end WebPractice has a real time beat counter which reminds you exactly where you are in the bar.
In my experience this beat counter together with the facility of repeating any bar or section at a variety of tempi is what makes WebPractising so effective.
