Word for 9/16 – Nimble

I have spent many hours of my life seated at a piano with a volume of studies or exercises in front of me.  Some studies actually have ‘artistic’ value but most exercises were written to help develop nimble fingers and agility with minimal musical content.  As I aged I learned that I didn’t need to spend as much time on exercises.  I could develop nibble playing while practicing sections of real pieces.

    • Perhaps, but it feels more like ‘use it or lose it’. Heard the quote “If I miss one day of practice, I notice it. If I miss two days, the critics notice it. If I miss three days, the audience notices it.” –Ignacy (Jan) Paderewski ?
