    Or just very busy people?

    Not sure if I have put this in the right place, but I just want to ask how you find enough time to get everything done. I have aims to go to a conservetoire and I am in year 11 doing grade 8 violin, having lkayed for 5 years, so I am quite behind and really need to (and want to) work hard to achieve my goals. I have a music scholarship for sixth form so I will have to manage my time differently then, but I find it really hard to get in enough practice on top of studying right now.

    I need 8 1/2 hours sleep a night to function efficiently so this is not something I want to cut back on. I also spend a bit of time reading before bed as it helps me relax and I love it. Add some more time to this for exercising some evenings, showering and eating, it doesn't leave enough time to both the amount of studying and music practice I want to do. I have been getting up early to practice half an hour before school as I love starting the day this way. In the ideal world, I would like to get in a couple of hours of music a day (mostly violin, but also a little bit of piano and theory study) as well as a couple of hours studying. I do a lot of music extra curricular on top of this but this will end after the summer concert in april. How do you fit it all in?
Do you think parents should charge rent?
