I want to break the typical learn violin in 10,000 hour mark by 5000 hours.
I want to do it within a year by practicing 16 hours a day, 7 days a week
(16hrs* 7 days * 4 weeks * 12 months = 5376 hours)
I want to record every minute of my practicing on video from greenhorn to hopeful virtuoso as a Susan Boyle of the violin publicity grab.
I'm doing it as an middle aged adult.
To summarize: I'm breaking all the rules, it cannot possibly be done, right?
The problem: Even if I did it somehow, people would say I faked it all...that I could play right well before I started and faked all the bad playing from the start.
I've read that Paganini was practicing for 12 hours a day...
So why not?
Your neck and back will definitelly need some help - so i'd recommend to make an appointment with massage therapist before You start this experiment or else there could be some consequences...
Any way that's a great idea and i'll definitelly will observe it with a hughe interest!
Just imagine, what all of us could do with an extra 8 hours a day, of which we spent sleeping...when I was younger, and am still young, I guess, I thought sleeping was a waste of time, in my college days, I'd spent the days studying, working, nights = partying and having fun. Now, I definitely need my 8 hours of sleep, but still, if you think about all those hours we spend sleeping, all the things we could get accomplished...if someone could just come up with some sort of "magic" juice to keeps us awake all 24 hours a day, wouldn't that be fantastic! LOL
"No one can do everything, but everyone can do something."
really, i think this is great. I work 12 hours a day and coach baseball and soccer. i am currently trying to o learn how to play the violin. i have taken the added challenge of building a fiddle. i will post that asap. i am so busy, i can't be troubled by capitilization. well, i hope you succeed. i would be interested in seeing the different learning techniques. if you go slow to learn the notes then speed up or if you just go for it.
best of luck. i look foreward to your posts.
and before your long practice don't forget to warm up a few minutes with this gadget
i am a high school soccer coach as well as a speed and agility trainer. yes rest is necessary for the muscles but it is different for your brain and ear. memorizing the neck doesn't necessarily take a lot of muscular exhaustion. learning the technique does. If you practice smart, you could do this. just dont think you can pound out song after song or you could get an injury. carpal tunnel, tennis elbow in your left arm from the twist of your forearm, shoulder issues in your right.
Listening and watching violin performances still teaches you.
this could be done. just be careful
