Memorizing a piece of a music is a pattern for strengthening the memory power. In this article, we check the process of memorizing a piece of music in NLP view. You can use this process in other ways so you can memorize everything easier.
Most people think that the process of memorizing a piece of music is an audible event. But after reading this article, you’ll understand that memorizing a piece of music is audible, visual, and sensory events. So follow Farshid Pakzat Research Group to the end of this article.
What is the pattern of memorizing a piece of music?
There was a research for discovering the pattern of memorizing a piece of music. In this research, a number of music students were asked to memorize a piece of a music. Then their brain and physical processes were carefully examined.
Observations showed that most of these students had a steady physical state while listening to music. It means that they keep a constant eye condition, a constant breathing pattern and the constant physical statue while listening to the music. For example, many of these students looked down when they were listening to music. They were bending his head to one side and also harmonizing his body with the rhythm of the song.
Further studies showed that most students visualize a graph when they listen to music. A graph which its vertical axis shows the pitch of the music and the horizontal axis shows the continuity of the pitch of the song over time. The longer the piece of the music was, the students remembered this mental picture more clearly.
Finally, it became clear that most of the students who participated in this study, while hearing and memorizing the song, have achieved an internal general feeling related to that music. Even some students visualized a piece of poetry while listening to music.
What happens to us when we want to memorize a music?
This test shows that auditory, visual and sensory channels are involved in memorizing a piece of music. This can be explained by the preferred channels topic in NLP.
As a brief explanation about the preferred channels, we should say that the people have achieved the understanding about the world through these three preferred channels. These preferred channels are visual, auditory, and touch (sensory) channels. The person’s ability in using these channels are different. Some people may have a better communication through seeing, and some people by hearing or touching.
A research on music students shows that they were listening to a piece of music (auditory preferred channel), coordinating their bodies with the musical rhythm (touch or sensory preferred channel), and connected the picture with what they were listening to. (Visual preferred channel).
How to use preferred channels for memorizing easier?
You can also use this method to memorize everything easier. Relate what you want to memorize with an image, a sound, a feeling or a body statue. So by involving all your preferred channels with the subject you want to memorize, you can remember that subject easier.
For example, many use this method for memorizing the multiplication table. It means that they read the multiplication table as a song (involving the auditory preferred channel), they remember a picture of what they say. Like this: 8 × ۸ × ۶۴ = (involving the visual preferred channel). Finally they coordinate their body rhythm with the multiplication table song when they are trying to memorize it.
We hope you achieve success by using NLP techniques.
