This works for me. I break up the song into bars, then the bars into measures or phrases. Usually I start from the last measure/phrase, playing it 50-100 times (depending the degree of difficulty) in one sitting. During the first 10-20 repeats I look at the sheet, after this I don't have to. Somehow the notes begin to stick and become stickier after each repetition. At a certain point I can visualize how they look on paper, hear how they sound together, and my fingers remember how they're played in sequence. (Usually takes about an hour)Agent27 said:I suppose you could apply to music if you broke down the music into individual phrases, motives, or ideas.
