I'm wondering how you all organize your practice sessions? (because I wonder if what I do is efficient)
My daily 45-60 minutes session 5 to 6 days a week:
- about 10 minutes exercises (scales, arpeggios, breathing technique...)
- 10-15 minutes improving a piece I can already more or less play
- 20-30 minutes working on a new or rather new piece I'm learning
- 5-10 minutes playing 1 or 2 pieces I can play rather well to end the session on a positive note
On Sundays I play just for fun depending on my mood.
For your info, I started proper recorder lessons with a recorder teacher a few months ago - I never took proper lessons before, but with what I'd learned in music class at school and my grade 6 with distinction in music theory (from when I played the piano as a kid/teenager) my teacher put me in a group preparing grade 5 after checking my level on several pieces.
