Audition

 

 

每一年面試前都會有學生和家長希望和我聊聊面試時候怎么樣做,或者說她們更想知道面試官到底想看到怎樣的自己?

 

恩,這個問題聽起來很具體了,可是回答起來確實不大好那么具體的回答。A說面試官喜歡看到一個充分理解音樂并且和他們演奏風格方式相同的表演者;B又說他們喜歡個性又有自己理解的獨奏者;C又說全身投入激情澎湃,不用管別的;D又說他們喜歡你眼神的交會,音樂來溝通,還喜歡善于溝通的高EQ的申請者。好吧,如果現在只剩下一個月你也只有一雙眼睛一雙手一個普通強度的身體和普通EQ的腦瓜,那么我們怎么做,先做什么?

 

首先,熟練背誦譜子(我指的是非常細致的背誦)并做到穩定的演奏。你要為你的面試做好125%的準備,因為面試時候大部分人會損失掉自己25%的真實水平。

 

第二,節奏和音準一致和穩定節奏和音準是音樂的最基礎,沒有了節奏,再花俏的技巧也只能是無源之木無本之水,千萬不要為了表現自己的個性而失去節奏和音準。要研究總譜,注意每一個節拍,符值,連線。要知道古典音樂演奏的方向的教授們一定不希望你是一個自由發揮的演奏家。

越到最后越是要做到慢練 說起來很容易可是當你形成習慣每次急匆匆的彈完你發現你根本不會慢下來了,這時候如果你已經體會到自己這個部分問題了可以適當使用節拍器來糾正自己的舊的壞習慣。

 

 

 

第三,音樂風格,這一點我要強調三遍。比如你再演奏莫扎特的曲目時候一定不能表演的太過高昂和激蕩,因為莫扎特的風格以細膩、輕盈、含蓄華貴,同時又有強烈的古典色彩而著稱。如果你把莫扎特的曲子彈得不知道是誰,那你就該那天打道回府了。

 

第四,強弱的對比,這句話怎么把它再分解呢:簡單來說就是把該強的強該弱的弱;意思就是強弱度要合適;這一點很多學琴多年的人很有體會,這一點對一個專業選手是很重要的水平衡量,因為這一點最是能代表一個選手對于作品的理解。如果你總是習慣性把本來的強弱度再強一些,那么當一個曲子演奏強度很強,你是打算刺穿所有面試官的耳膜嗎?反過來某個PART部分強度很弱,你需要弓著身子氣若游絲表達嗎?

強弱的對比一定是基于你對曲子的理解,這一點我認為比目光交流和微笑還要重要和致命,尤其是對于沒有太多舞臺經驗的學生,上臺后耳朵聽不見自己的琴聲,從而在強弱上失控!

 

 

第五,提前預演,可以在好朋友或者熟悉的師長面前做幾次演戲,緩解緊張。

 

第六,穿著得體,舉止得當。小鮮花小鮮肉不能穿戴花枝招展,奇裝異服,過多裝飾,這些我就不再多說了,都get到了吧!

 

第七,準備好向校方提問的有意義的問題,盡可能多做功課多了解對方院校,教授,專業名額,各種項目等。

 

第八,提前候場,微笑立場,對所有評委表示誠摯感謝(注意目光要到每一個人身上)。
