As we just learned, your muscles, nerves, and brain are already fast enough to execute anything you’ll ever need to play at the piano. To use a computer analogy, your hardware… your microprocessor, memory, clock, I/O, and peripherals are all plenty fast enough to get the job done.
So, when you are having difficulty playing a piece of music, the problem is never a hardware issue. I’s software. Always. Buggy, inefficient software.
Every time you practice, you are writing software. And the quality of the software you write is absolutely determined by the quality of your study and practice habits.
Mindless practicing leads to buggy, inefficient software.
