I dont know if this phrase exist in English, but im going to use it anyway:)

With freezing piece i mean, that you stop playing one piece for a while (month or 2) and then come back to it.

I have decided to that with flight of the bubmlebee, since i will have less time to practice in upcoming month.


To the point. I want to know, if there would be any damage, if i would i play part of the piece, which i have already learned, few times each week and then come back to it after month or two, would i need a lot of time to relearn it?

i have found that after not playing a piece for a VERY long time, you never completely forget it and it comes back blazingly fast if you try to re-learn it. Although one thing I do find is that after working on a piece diligently for a long time and taking a 1-3 day break, when you come back, you're better than when you last stopped. this is for me personally and will vary from person to person.

Personally, I have found that when I don't play a piece for a long time, not only do I need to re-learn it but when I do it ends up being much different than what I originally played.

I think this is because I improvise everything and as I learn new things to do I try and work these things into my piece.

In a way, it's a lot of fun re-learning old pieces; especially when you can make something completely different out of them. Kind of like a musical remodel of sorts! thumb
