Instrumental performance is exceptionally complex. Each instrument has its own characteristics and these, to some extent, define how a piece will be played. For example, a fanfare will generally be led by horns and will make use of the incredible power and loud dynamics of these instruments. A lute piece, on the other hand, will generally be soft and intimate and will take advantage of the subtleties of the instrument in performance.

When you’re learning to perform on an instrument, you’ll have to accommodate the phrasing of the piece with your playing style. You would not, for example, want to take a deep breath in the middle of a long an intricate passage and, thereby, break up the feel of the passage entirely. Conversely, you wouldn’t want to rush through a phrase that’s intended as the defining characteristic of a piece.

The leitmotif, which is sometimes called the hook in modern parlance, is the part of a piece of music that people usually remember. Because it is such a good example, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony is a good piece to listen to. The distinctive opening phrase is developed throughout the piece, but it is phrased in a way that always makes it coherent. Phrasing will be a huge part of your success as an instrumental performer.

Starting out, try to play musical pieces as faithfully as possible to the sheet music. If you’re a pianist or a guitarist, you have the advantage of not being expected to read off of sheet music during performance. This allows you to internalize the music and to interpret it from the inside out, rather than having reading the sheet music itself take up any of your energy. Try to memorize any piece of music you learn, even if you’ll have the sheet music in front of you during performance.
