Solving a musical difficulty/challenge
We all have experienced this. You have a piece of music, a study in front of you and there is a series of notes, phrase, passage that keeps tripping you up. How do you resolve this?
The basic answer is the same no matter what you are doing. You need to understand what is happening and break the process into simple component parts. You can then explore and resolve the difficulty.
Emmanuel Pahud talks about his process. Great advice.
No matter who you are, what instrument you play, whether you are a beginner or a professional, everyone at some point will face a musical challenge and how you approach that challenge will determine if you master it or it masters you.
