Practicing and Memorizing, Part IX
(con't from Part VIII)
There's an old saying: "Musicians never master their chosen instrument -- the more they learn, the more they realize they don't know."
Study of the organ, like any other musical instrument, is a lifetime endeavor.
No matter how well we can already perform hymns or certain repertoire, improvise, or compose, no matter where we think we are on the learning curve, there will always be more of practical value to study, experience, and absorb.
Indeed, the longer we organists work at it, the more we realize how much more there is to learn.
