Are you practicing a piece that you won't talk to your teacher about? Something you wouldn't mention to your colleagues or friends?
When I was 14 my teacher said to get the vivaldi A minor. While we were at the music store (otto Stein in Phoenix Arizona) I convinced my mother to buy the music the Bruch G minor concerto.
It was a huge disparity and I didn't have a lick of a chance of playing it (the Vivaldi was hard enough). I never told any teacher about it.
Do you have a secret piece that is really too hard but you're trying it anyway?
