You've probably heard of it again and again from piano teachers that practice makes perfect. The thing is, piano teachers nowadays do not teach HOW to practice. In my opinion the key to practicing is not to play the piece (piano solo) over and over again because there is actually more to practicing than repetition. The key to practicing is to focus on mistakes one makes during the practice, and spending even a practice session of 2 minutes fixing those mistakes and perfecting the piece not to mention giving the piece a life of its own by maintaining a wide variety of dynamic alterations. Practicing blindfolded helps Smile take advice from Obi Wan in star wars....put on a helmet...you don't need to see anything....FEEL THE FORCE!
Those that can train themselves to feel the force will eventually become master of their instrument.

I try to close my eyes sometimes and visualise the piano, and the hit notes and Im doing that pretty good, but at a slow speed atm. I hardly never practice like this Sad So, how often and for how long do you practice without watching the piano?? Did you start that early? Smile
