Everyone thinks they don’t do enough.
But maybe you actually do more then you need…
How much Flamenco Practice is Enough.
I always feel I don’t do enough practice.
I get so caught up in getting to the end result that I forget how far I’ve come.
Most people I know feel the same. So if we all worry about practice how much do you really need?
I mean some guys were doing 6 extra hours on top of school time, wow!!
Let’s Ask Some Experts
Danny often said that we practice too much (when I was at Cristina Heeren.)
“You shouldn’t need more than 2 hours a day.”
Any more then this we could run the risk of hurting ourselves.
Tamara confessed that she doesn’t practice at all, having got to a level where she improvises everything.
She thinks if you are taking regular classes everyday than 1-2 hours extra is more than enough.
Paco de Lucia once said
“I don’t practice… I just play.”
The trouble is that there is so much to learn.
And when the learning curve is really steep you feel like you can’t practice enough.
I think around 2 hours every day dedicated to practice is a good bet.
Anything extra is a bonus and you won’t feel guilty.
Do you have some tips for practice?
Is 2 hours really enough for you?
