Abstract:
Playing by ear, or picking by ear is a certain performing art’s activity based on a reproduction of a known music piece, without the written music (or not looking at a score). While playing by ear, different types of musician’s activity are synthesized, which make him/her more like a universal musician of past centuries who was a composer, a performer and an improviser in one person. Playing by ear allows a music teacher to greatly enrich the repertoire of music lessons, including in it the unpublished works. In Tatarstan, the skill of picking by ear is relevant, since the Tatar folk songs have a deep educational potential and a cultural value which promote students’ ethno-musical development. Despite the importance of the playing by ear in the music teacher’s activity, the problem of development of this skill remains relevant. In most cases, the students are not ready to pick by ear even an uncomplicated song. This is largely due to insufficient attention and underestimation to it. Playing by ear is viewed as “imperfect” in the aspect of composition and performance, as a secondary type of performing art compared with the interpretation of the concert repertoire which differs through the thoroughness of each element of musical text. Playing by ear is a complex skill requiring the development of musical ear, thinking and memory, as well the perfection in mastering of the piano, the knowledge of the principles of music structure and the formation of the musical “tapestry” (or fabric), the integration of music theory knowledge and the practical performance skills. The algorithmic training is advisable, which is based on auditory analysis of the structural and artistic characteristics of the song, defining the type of musical texture and a style of its variation; the performing of a song arrangement on the piano. Special attention is paid to genre, stylistic and textural characteristics of the Tatar folk songs.
