Stana from Zurich asks Boki:

– Since I have been playing the clarinet for 3 years, I would like to know what is more advisable to begin learning music – a song or the national dance?
Rad

Boki Milošević answers:

– Dear Stano, we get to know and learn folk music from the very beginning. So, you should first learn folk song, its spirit, and only then move on to the dance because of its different ornaments.

Unfortunately, many young people do not do it that way. They immediately begin with the national dance, and never learn folk song and its spirit.

That’s why we have a situation that many great instrumentalists play the round dance perfectly, but they cannot compile the song. They think it’s just like that. No, it isn’t!

It is even more difficult to play a nice song than one round dance! The song must have its own character, its own atmosphere and mood. If the player does not present it, does not conjure it up – he has not done anything!

The songs, unlike the national dances, have a completely different treatment. You have to be familiar with the text and content, in order to be able to play adequately. The way of pronouncing the song is very important too.

The singer, when singing the word ” love “, cannot tell the syllable “lo”, take the air, and then say “ve”. You must also be familiar with accentuation. The melody often has to be changed so that the text can be spoken correctly.

NOTE:
