This is a different kind of post. Usually I am writing to provide answers, but today I am writing to ask a question.
Over my years of teaching many people have come to me with some problem related to the music.
They would say things like:
* I can’t hear the beat
* It just sounds like a bunch of instruments making sound
* I can’t feel the music
* I get lost in the melody
* I can’t find the rhythm… etc
These are all very different problems, with a neurological base, there are people who can’t hear the rhythm, or the tone or the melody. There also people who can cognitively “get” the music but they can’t emotionally relate to it and vice versa.
The simplistic advice: “Give yourself time. Listen to a lot of music and have in mind that everyone hears music differently” Just doesn’t work.
So basically I want to find out what can possibly work… And this is where you come in.
If you have/ had trouble with the music could you possibly share your story in details..?
What is it you are having trouble with, what makes it worse and what makes it better?
Was it only Tango or have you had trouble in other dances/ activities?
Anything that you really can’t make sense of, an example of that would be, Che Guevara could not really tell a mambo from tango but yet he played the guitar..how..?
And anything else you find relevant.
Looking forward to hearing your story!
Thank you in advance for sharing,
P.S: If you don’t want to share publicly, you can send me a personal message or an email at email@example.com
