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

let's see, if i don't practice perfectly, i won't get it perfect.
hmmmm, the point of practicing is to work on through the mistakes or the less-than-perfect parts.

i challenge any one of you to pick up a piece of music and practice it perfect every time. you prodigies, you.

maybe one should really think about these cutie little sayings before becoming a parrot for them.

peace, out

I suggest you read the post over and over until you understand what was said. You can pick up a piece of music and play it perfectly. The tempo at which you play that piece of music is the factor. Also, make every practice count and not half-ass it pretending like you are playing some grand recital when you can't even play one tune completely and perfectly. So, to translate for you, practice perfectly by playing the tune at a tempo that will allow you to play it perfectly! The slower the better in the beginning. I hope this clears things up. If not, oh well, I know the value of practicing perfectly and do it everyday, whether or not you do doesn't concern me in the least.
