How to practice, practice, practice

How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

Practice, practice, practice!

Practice makes perfect.

Nooo, practice makes Permanent.

Practice is important.  Always have a plan.  That is, know what you want to do.

I want to play the first line perfectly.

Hey, that’s a practice plan.  How are you gonna do that?

I’ll play till I make a mistake, and when I do I will practice that part SLOWLY and CORRECTLY till I get it right three times.

OK, that’s got it right doing it slowly, then start speeding up, but making sure you do it right.

Until I can play it right 3 times?

At least.  Always have a plan like this.
