Over-practicing: Quality over quantity

“Practice, practice, practice,” we’re constantly told. “Practice makes perfect,” we’ve also heard. Well, is there such a thing as too much practice? Is it humanly possible to over-practice? I’m not ashamed to admit that there is and I’ve been guilty of it. I’m sure we all have on occasion.  I’m not talking about the years we’ve been practicing. I’m referring to the time frame of each practice session.
