How do we learn ?
A quick look into how the mind copes with the new and strange..
It's said we learn at a faster rate as a child than at any other time in our lives.
I believe this is down to two main
A: We are open to new ideas with out fear doubt or
B: We make an awful
lot of mistakes and have to repeat
until we get it right.
When we learn a new skill the mind must make new connections.
Making these connections memory is not an instant
many reparatitions must be made to generate these memories.
The repartitions must be performed at
a speed that the mind
can comprehend and without stress or tension or the mind will
learn this as part of the pattern.
Points to note:We remember;
10% of what we read
20% of what we hear
30% of what
50% of what we hear and see
70% of what we say
90% of what we say and do
it's clear from this list that if we sound out the parts
we are trying to perform we will get there quicker.
finalise by combining our senses we can learn more efficiently.
So next time you see a drummer sniffing his snare
whilst playing a
new part you will know what he is doing............
Looking very stupid !!
