In general, I practice around five hours per day, combined with six hours/week of orchestra (and sometimes more hours for chamber music). It just so happens that my upcoming recitals and a very intsense opera rehearsal schedule/performance are almost at the same time. This means that for one week, if at current schedule, I'd probably have the violin in my hand for 8-9 hours, daily. Are there any long term bodily health issues to be concerned of? I take regular breaks when practicing on my own every 45 minutes. While I have done this before, I would like to know if it is healthy.
