[1.III.19] The "Ideal" Practice Routine (Bach's Teachings and Invention #4)
Is there an ideal, universal practice routine? No, because each person must design her/is own practice routine at each practice session. In other words, this book is all about designing your own practice routines. Some differences between a well designed routine and the intuitive routine of section II.1 are discussed in the last paragraph of this section. A good piano teacher will discuss the appropriate practice routines for the lesson pieces during the lesson. Those who already know how to create practice routines might still find this section interesting, as we will discuss many useful points (such as Bach's teachings and specifics on how to practice his Invention #4) in addition to practice routines.
