While I agree that "bad" practice is worse than no practice, there is one thing to consider. Sometimes, I just don't feel "in the mood" for piping during my practice time. But I go out anyway. More often than not, that mood changes. When the pipes are singing, and the fingers are cooperating, there's no better spirit-lifter, and I'm soon in the mood for an extra hour!

Now, when it turns out that I really WASN'T supposed to pipe that day - even when I Was in the mood for it before - I cut my practice short, usually performing maintenance instead.

With all that I have to get done in a day, I can't afford to miss an hour of practice that might have gone well if only I had tried.

I had said to my music teacher "practice makes perfect"
"Oh no" she said "Only perfect practice, makes perfect"
