The Science and Art of Practicing

After practicing hard on your guqin 古琴, if you have ever wondered:
  • Why is it better to practice every day for an hour, instead of seven hours on one day of the week?
  • Why didn’t it help much to play that hard passage 20 times in a row?
  • Does mental practicing actually work?
  • I practice so hard, why does my playing sound mechanical?
The article, The Science and Art of Practicing: with Molly Gebrian and Shelly Tramposh, written by Laurie Niles just might shed some light on the subject. Enjoy.

Please post your comments and share your thoughts. Thanks! *smile*
