I was raised a classical pianist. When I was fifteen I could play "Moonlight Sonata" all eighteen pages and three movoments. Each movement a different and increasingly faster tempo. The third movement is "presto" and incredibly difficult.
To this day I compose music and learn difficult instrumental pieces from Classical to Ethnic.
Without repitition, quality is somewhat attainable in your comfort zone with minimal reps, but when you add the stressors of real life...it does not hold up.
Practice and repition does not make perfect. Perfect practice, and perfect repetition makes perfect.
All the best dog trainers I've learned from adhere to breaking any behavior down into pieces and perfecting each piece before ever putting them together. Then when the pieces are put together..the performance must be perfectly reinforced and perfectly practiced under stressful and unfamiliar settings. When the performance is consistent under different setting and stresses...then you have excellence/perfection.
Can you please explain why perfect repetition can create problems and exactly what some examples of those "many areas" are.
Anyone who is going to meld all the pieces together at once to train is halfassing each step.
Therefore, it's not the repetition that should be disqualified...moreso the sub-par teaching of any behavior.
So, please...why is repititon specifically not a good thing?
