In this video I cover 11 science-based reasons we have trouble memorizing music in the practice room as well as strategies that we can use to improve our long-term memorization of music. These reasons include not listening enough, serial vs. additive and holistic practice, mnemonics, spaced practice, blocked vs. interleaved practice, variable practice, elaboration, reflection, calibration, generation, retrieval practice and too much stress.
Make sure to take a look at the description in the YouTube video for references and useful information. I also highly recommend buying and reading the book Make It Stick. It's awesome and I know it will help you a ton with your memorization.
