I'm beginning to notice a pattern: whenever I've been forced to take a few days off practice, I seem to play better when I return to the instrument.
I'm wondering if there is a case for regular rest periods, as a constructive part of the practice routine?
I believe that many sports coaches recommend regular time off every few weeks, to allow the body to repair itself and the nervous system to absorb new motor skills.
Something that doesn't seem to have been discussed before. I'd appreciate advice!
