    To truly be efficient with your
     practice time, mark only the
   specific measures in a piece or           In closing...
       etude that you cannot play
     perfectly (if it is more than 1
    in 10, find an easier piece!!). 
      ONLY spend time practicing
   those marked measures.  Then,
   have a final run through to see
     if you can remove (or add) to
         your marked measures.
