YOU ASK – MR BOKI MILOŠEVIĆ ANSWERS / No. 5
– Maestro Boki, please, tell the visitors of this clarinet site how do you practice folk music?
Boki Milošević answers:
– Folk music should above all be much loved, listened and learned. A person should devote himself to it and put his whole being into it. Folk music, like any music, requires to be practiced studiously.
A round dance or any folk dance, which means a virtuous piece, cannot just be played straightaway. It must be practiced in the same way as we practice etudes, sonatas and pieces.
- It is first played slightly, then you gradually increase the tempo until you reach the desired one. (Look: Practicing With Metronome)
- After that, the character is pushed into the composition. Without stylistic approach it has no value.
Boki is ready and glad to answer to any question!
Best regards to all!
