The Point of Practicing

April 22, 2010

From David Finckel’s excellent series of short Cello Talk videos on Vimeo, I discovered this quote by Colin Carr regarding practice.

The point of practicing is not to do it until you get it right. It's to do it until it is never wrong.

The quote is mentioned in Cello Talk 79: Calgary Talk II: 4 Minute Demo.
