Sometimes it seems like I can play things fine in practice, but when I have to play for my teacher I make dumb mistakes. I actually (sometimes) do better in performances than I do when playing for my teacher. I think I should probably pay more attention to the little things I do in practice and that could improve my overall performance...

Obviously I love violin, but sometimes practice can be tedious and not something to look forward to. Lately (since I have been learning the Mozart A major) practice has been something I love. I have a hard time practicing anything else. Also I am not just playing through the piece, but I am working extensively with the practice suggestions. I went from practicing a measly 40 mins. to a good solid 1 hour 30 mins! This still isn't as much as I should be, but I'll work up to 2 then 3 hours. Any other suggestions on how to "buff up" your practicing?
