Therefore it is better given 15-20 minutes to ensure that a child with fun and efficient implementation of the occupation. Competition. You can try to interest the child, using a little competition, for example, who quickly learn a song, mother or son? And in the end to present the prizes, such as a chocolate medal. You can try using a different technique. Some of the parents sit down at the instrument and slowly begins to learn the product, constantly asking the child, as well as play this or that.

Many children it is important to show parents their skills so they can take the game and go to the tool. Freedom in creativity. If playing the piano is closed only on learning of and performance works on the program, the child begins to perceive the piano as a hostile object on which it is forced to play. Piano – is not child's toy, but you should try to position it so way that the child saw him as an object of the game. If a child comes to the piano not only when it is time to do, then it is very good.

For this example, you can take any story and try with your child to make a musical fairy tale – to interpret the text to sounds. Fairy tales children love. Accordingly, the objects with which turns a fairy tale, children also enjoy. The game always comes out as if in two temporal dimensions: the present and future. On the one hand, it provides a momentary personal pleasure is the satisfaction of actual needs. On the other hand, the game is directed to the future, since it either projected or simulated life situations, or fixed properties, qualities, skills, abilities, personality necessary for social, professional and creative functions. VL Sukhomlinskii wrote: " Let us examine carefully the place of the game of life … For a game – it is a most serious matter. The game opens, the children of the world, reveals the creative abilities of the individual. Without these, and can not be full mental development. The game – a huge bright window through which the spiritual world of the child joins the life-giving flow of ideas, concepts about the world. Game – it is a spark ignited spark curiosity curiosity. " VL Sukhomlinskii also noted that "… a full spiritual life of the child only when he lives in a world of games, stories, music, fantasy and creativity." Meanwhile, the game over the years is less significant role in life groups, dominated by school-age children. One of the reasons – lack of attention to the development of game theory students. The clearest example of a game introduces us to the position of teacher activity, AM Makarenko. He wrote: "One of the most important ways of parenting, I think the game. In the life of a group of children is a serious and responsible role play should occupy an important place. And you, teachers must be able to play. "

Blues-Rock

without comments

Often, the blues is perceived in music as a primitive form of jazz, a style that has developed almost in parallel. However, the concept of the blues has its roots in the late 19th century, and it is inseparably connected with Southern U.S. Negro culture. Pre-war acoustic blues was a part of black folklore, so the attitude of the white population was very bad. By the end of the forties of last century in the Blues finally settled electric guitar. It is hard to say what prompted many to switch from the usual blues acoustic guitar to electric, but the blues since greatly changed. Most often, the electric blues associate the names of Muddy Waters, BB King, T-Bon Walker and Albert Collins. Each of these musicians (and many more not mentioned) are the personification of his time.

His music career they did not currently amassing state – they just lived the blues. All these musicians have reached an unprecedented level of skill in the electric blues, and often their music is directly bordered by rock, so many rock musicians call their own inspiration. But Despite all this, the ratio of the blues from the majority of white Americans has changed for the better only in the sixties of last century, due mainly to the emergence of the blues-rock. History of the blues-rock takes began in the late fifties, and lasts to this day. The first to cross the blues with rock started, oddly enough, not the Americans and British.

On the eve of I had a dream that's funny color, which happens very rarely, maybe because I'm colorblind. Two Chinese, two in beautiful unshaven bright red satin robe with long sleeves down to the ground, as if my name for themselves. And the language that they speak not like Chinese, and they laugh once ingratiating unkind, I'm on the road behind them, the road ends and limited by water obstacle insurmountable … That's either here materialistom.Den first (April 21). Dear piano … and very good in terms of operation, its enchanting sound "Petrof", all kind tacitly asked 'Warum?' And there was the moment the answer to this "wet-issue" is not the tool, and some, if you like music and animated creatures. Scenes from the famous film "The Piano", is so full of human feelings, completely different – beautiful, sublime, scary, low-lying, banal, silly, strong, simple and intricate, flashed in my mind, a silent piano music, drowned, turned to me as the master (oops, even the most immodest seems rather no one artisan, learn a few simple and well-known methods) for setting up and repairing musical instruments. At that point, I just was not the right to refuse service to resuscitation tool, but clearly warned the owner that she was praying, because the operation's success depended not on how my professional skills, and the degree of damage resulting from the "water-soaking" part piano. It should be noted that previously I had not, in my practice to deal with this situation.
