Can you practice too much?
Violinists work hard. Practicing 5 hours a day is not noteworthy. However, one of the most influential teachers, Carl Flesch, would “spy” on his students to make sure they didn’t practice too much!
Flesch understood musicians needed to take extended breaks, recharge, and return to the music with a fresh perspective.
Similarly, in a world where work is a phone tap away, how might we make sure we bring our best selves to tackle sticky problems?
Thanks for caring!
