hmmm. I'm onto you! when you say you play at about LMus level, did you actually sit the exam to qualify for that statement, or are you just comparing yourself to what you guess LMus level is like? Because what you dont see is the endless scales and technical works and theory and stuff that is required on top of the pieces an LMus student can do.Phanatical said:Some of my colleagues practice up to six hours a day, and they're only progressingly slightly faster than those of us who practice 10 minutes a day. I now play at about LMus level, beyond that even - and I haven't done any more than 10 minutes practice a day since 1999. I practice a piece for 10 minutes a day for a few days, leave it and come back weeks later, and I can find the piece is much easier to play than it was before.
