    OK – I’ve been practicing, and practicing AND practicing at least 3 and sometimes 4 hours a day.

    Hi Kay~

    I would *love* to practice 3 – 4 hours a day…but alas…..there are not enough hours in the day.

    When I do practice, I lose track of time. I can spend an hour on one Salzedo exercise without realizing that so much time has gone by. And I am very motivated to practice to the point where I can play ‘hands together’ on new pieces. THEN once the piece is coming along….I enjoy making the phrasing just right….and there goes another hour.

    Sometimes when I’m stuck in traffic on I-75, I’ll move my fingers along to the tune in my head. I wonder what the other drivers think!

    I wish I had taken harp lessons years ago instead of piano lessons. But then I though the harp was only for rich Gold Coast musicians. Live and learn.

    I hope that your harp continues to give you such joy. It sure enriches ones life!

    Hi Kay, that’s very normal because there is something that you want to achieve and that is to be the best in what you do. So keep it up and don’t worry about it too much!

    I admire your determination!

    That’s why I love being a harpist/school teacher. I couldn’t imagine having a job where I couldn’t get in massive amounts of practicing. I, too, get in these grooves where I just can’t get enough practicing! (Like right now with the Grossi and Boscha books from the other post.)
