How long can and do you practice every day?

Myself i can't practise in school time as much as i want to (because of afternoon school and studies).

So in school time I only practise around 2 hours, at the weekend more. And vacations, mmm: ideal for practising B)

I don't usually get much time to practice caz I'll be busy teaching.
But when I do have the time I'll probably get stuck to my instrument for the whole day.
BTW, I have an acute pain in my Left pinky...might be dued to overpractice...trying to do a last minute dash for tomorrow's concert...
Do u guys have any suggestions for getting rid of the pain? :(

Usually I practice about 1.5 - 2 hours a day. I'm usually very busy with my baby. She does not like me playing my violin. I think it's because my attention is not on her.

Recently I've been stuck in my practicing. I don't seem to be getting anywhere :( I know it's because I need an instructor, but that'll have to wait until I go back to work.

I usually practice 5-6 hours a day. That is on average. This one time, I had nothing to do all, day, no distractions (TV, radio, computer) and Ipracticed for almost eleven hours!!! Still haven't beaten THAT record yet. My fingers were going to fall of the next day. Now I have work and school is starting soon, so I might not have that much time on my hands now.

OMG! :huh: My longest record is only some 10 hrs. And my head would split like hell after that.

My fingers were going to fall of the next day.
I always feel that my fingers seem to shrink the following day. I think too much tension makes muscles contract. And yes, they certainly do feel like falling off. :lol:

I'm up to about 1 1/2 hours a day...split into two sessions most days...sometimes I only play the violin, but most days I try and fit the viola into one session...

...I can tell I'm improving ...some days I've played more...but with school and family I can't get much more in on a regular basis...

...it's become my major stress controller...

...I'm not innately musical...I have to work hard at it...but it makes me wonder...if you are innately musical...and practice 2-5 hours a day...you must be absolutely awesome...LOL...

You must share your works with us, Angel! I'm sure 5hrs brainstorming at the piano will produce some very wonderful music.

I do have her listen to classical music all the time. I looked at those Baby Einstein CD's, but I already have all that music in my CD collection, so I just have her listen to those! All of her toys that play music play some classical stuff, too. It's considered very good for baby brain development.

I think she doesn't like my practicing because it's one of the few times I'm focussed on something other than her!

I believe music is good for brain development.
There is a scientific study for this I remembered.
They got some kids to take a memory test. The result was noted.
Then, they made one group of kids go for sports, the other, music, and the last group with no other activities.
Then they made them take the test a few months after they started on their lessons.
The group who did music made remarkable improvement, the group with sports very 'minute' improvement, and the other with no activities remained the same.
And they had brain scans or something to show and explain their hypothesis. All the children who took music, saw a development in their ( can't remember which part), but I believe is the forebrain? There was a significant increase in brain activity when exposed to music. And the fore brain was responsible for analytical thinking reasoning and memory functions.
So, in a word, people who listened to music ( like us) are all super-brainers! B)
