I just realised the other day how much time we spend rehearsing on testpieces months in advance at our band instead of playing lots of different music for concerts or even doing concerts. I really like doing concerts and contests in balance but right now all we're doing is testpieces and its really annoying me! I have aked them about it(the band) but apparently you've got to keep the powers that be happy Is there a tendancy to lose sight of why we do it? Getting so engrossed in trying to win the next contest that we forget why we play in the first place? What do other people think?
