comment Is there any research showing that practicing some amount of minutes a day improves ability?
It's very risky to say that it will take 10000 hours and you'll be disappointed if you don't reach your calculation. The most important part is doing the effort with love for what you're doing, not the goal. As an ancient teaching says, you own the work, not the result of the work. Thanks for your comments!

comment Is there any research showing that practicing some amount of minutes a day improves ability?
@Grey i agree on it not being a hard limit as you say. On the other hand, the "10000 hour" isn't a "hard" or "fixed" goal either. I think one thing is to make a daily study plan arranged for better learning, and other is to try to estimate when you'll reach a far-future goal making calculations based on a number. [continues...]

You put some interesting points in your answer. I would only say that it contradicts when it says that more practice is better and more than that is better too and then you say that there's an upper limit to how much good practice you can get in any given day (which there is). Some music therapists i've heard of say it's 3 hours per day. But what's more important than how many hours you practice is what is the frequency of your practice. Brain should receive the most constant stimuli as possible for learning something. Best to practice 5 minutes every 1 hour than 4 or 5 hours on sundays.

comment What are the names of these scales?
@leftaroundabout If you like, edit your answer and add this information to improve it. Scales or modes can be known with different names in different cultures. As the answerer said, in western music they derive from the Phrygian mode but can have other names in ancient oriental music. In jewish music it's "Ahava Rabbah". In Indian Classical Music they are from the Bhairav family: 1) Basant Mukhari (or Basant Bhairav) and 2) Bhairav respectively. In central Asia they are from the Hijaz (or Hiçaz) family: 1) Hijaz-Nahawand (or Hijaz-Nihavend) and 2) Hijaz respectively. goo.gl/j7VQg

Undo what I added of "what I need from counterpoint" because I think it belongs to a new question.
