[05/04, 12:52] Over the weekend I watched again the 3 hours of Nathan Cole talking and demonstrating good practicing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NT4qpneWtM&t=2084s). I found it very inspiring, refreshing and informative. I hope you would too. I also watched a documentary about the Inner Game of tennis, called Tennis: the Inner Game, produced by PBS in the USA. Fabulous. It includes a complete tennis lesson that Timothy Gallwey gives to a novice, as well as an interview with Gallwey. Incredible stuff. As I have said previously, more than once, please read The Inner Game of Tennis. Both Dorothy DeLay and Itzhak Perlman publicly stated that they thought it the best book on violin playing. I agree completely. I know of no other material that illuminates the process of optimal learning so well.
