Don’t practice until you get it right,
practice until you can’t get it wrong.

Are Melodics lessons starting to get challenging?
Good news – this is where the magic happens.

Rodi – Director of Education at Melodics – takes you through practice mode.

Getting to your learning edge.

You probably breezed through some of the early lessons. It was fun - and then suddenly, it got really hard. With any new skill you’re learning, you’ll hit a point where you have to really work to progress.

The good news is that this is what you’re looking for - that zone where you’re operating at the edge of your abilities.

This is your “learning edge”. It’s the zone between too easy and too hard. That’s where most of your learning happens. It’s important to spend enough time at this learning edge, because this is where you make the most progress.

Find & fix your mistakes.

Find & fix your mistakes.

Melodics uses methods based on decades of solid research - a systematic approach that helps you find your mistakes, and fix them before they become ingrained.

The colour-coded visual feedback in Melodics identifies your weak spots, and tells you where you need to focus your attention. The Melodics AutoBPM feature helps you find the perfect tempo for your practice.

Find & fix your mistakes.

Review & repeat.

The scoring in Melodics can be pretty harsh, but wait until you meet your toughest critic – yourself.

Active listening is a superpower for musicians. Review your Melodics performances – is there anything you notice yourself as a listener that you may have missed while playing? Identify what you need to work on and quickly loop it up to get in those reps.

Repetition is key.

Repetition is key.

Melodics lessons are already broken down into steps, but you can take control of lessons by breaking them down even further. By looping the lesson into smaller chunks, you can work on parts you’re having problems with, and get those reps in until you can’t get it wrong.

Start slow, and build up to full speed. Slowing down your playing helps you focus, figure out where the mistakes are happening, and crack tricky problems.

Melodics gives you two great ways to slow down:

Reduce the tempo.

Find the speed that works for you, and once you’re comfortable, use AutoBPM to gradually build up speed. AutoBPM will help you find the optimal tempo for your practice.

Use the “Wait” option.

Take your time and really concentrate on the physical movements. Melodics will wait for you to hit each drum or play each note.

These methods will help you to overcome even the hardest of challenges.

Take your time, put in the reps, and muscle memory will start to take over. Get in your 5 minutes of practice every day, and you’ll be amazed by what you can achieve. Regular practice pays off quickly - what seemed impossible on your first attempt will become second nature.

What hardware will you be using to play Melodics?

Melodics works best with hardware.

You can play it with your computer keyboard, but it is a much better experience with access to a MIDI keyboard, pad controller, or MIDI drum kit.
