I am an adult who picked up violin again after a 22 year break. It has been three years. I have made some significant gain. I joined a community orchestra and has been playing as assistant concert master. I found myself devoting a lot of time to orchestra music. Almost too much. Especially for this upcoming concert, the concert master, a senior in high school, only showed up 4 times in the past three months. I carried a lot of burden of the concert master. Trying even harder to get perfect with my part.
My question is what is a healthy time allotment for orchestra, eg. 50% of total practice time? Thanks!
