to practice seven days a week, with school, i think is really good. when
school is in session i find it hard to find time, i manage to get by with 3-4
days of practicing. to help out, i do other forms of putting
my music in my school folder and looking at it and sometimes mimic playing.
my friends know i'm a weird band geek so they're aren't to concerned when i
start moving my fingers around in the air. i think adam makes a good point is definately something to factor in when you consider
commitment level. do you practice or do you study for final exams which will
affect your grades and may ultimately affect whether you get into the college
you want?
