I have been playing piano for about 2 years now and I know all the basics from simple triads to scales, modes major minor and more advanced chords. I use to practice very hard daily to develop techniques and dexterity, finger memory and strength. My ears were also always involved and my brain well engaged. As I practiced, I didn't have a lot of time left to play music, just simple pieces to keep me interested.
Now, I feel I know enough about the piano and I am shifting my attention to music reading, playing and studying specific music styles, beginning with Bach mainly, but also other styles.
I am still learning new techniques (which come to me much quicker and easier).
So my question is:
As I shift my attention, to use what I've learnt, do I still need to practice scales, chords, arpeggios daily? And how much of it? I still currently do that but just to warm up before I actually play. My practice is more mental seeing notes, scales... but in my head.
How much practice does anyone do? How do you include it in your routines?
