Do I need to practice during the weekend?
Hmm...the eternal question!
I always thought weekends are to sleep in late, relax, play football, do nothing! Apparently not!
My violin lesson is on Monday so I have a problem! Last week my violin teacher asked me 'Max, did you practice during the weekend?' Nooooo...I answered. I was busy! On Saturday I played football with my friends, then in the afternoon went to a friend's birthday. On Sunday I got up late and then went with my parents to my aunt and uncle for lunch. That lasted forever!!!! So of course, I didn't have time to practice.
I am now learning an Oskar Rieding concerto. It's really cool, but I do have problems with the fast passages. Need to practice it slowly with the meteronome until I don't have it correct. Christmas concert is coming soon...so that means I need to practice every day, and that means EVERY DAY! Weekends too!
My violin teacher tells me 'Max, practice the difficult passages 10 minutes every day and in a week you will know it'.
With heavy heart I'll listen to my teacher. Will let you know if he is right!
Do you practice during the weekend?
