I am struggling to make progress on my technique on a higher grade. I did grade 7 flute some time ago, but even though I practised for a long time on my instrument, I felt that I was not making much progress. My objective is to reach grade 8, but I do not know what is the fastest way to do this. What sort of techniques should I use? I feel that there is a lack of resources on guiding myself through music practice. I play a piece, and my teacher suggested that I should play slowly when I have difficult runs. I am trying to do everything my teacher is asking for, but I do not understand why I am not making much progress.
There must be a way in which people do so well in music even though it is so difficult. I want to know how people manage to get through all the grades.
Also, what is the fastest way to reach grade 8 from scratch?
